Great views. Glad Mr. Wendt didn't get to build his stupid ski area here.

Date Climbed: Sep 9, 2013


We drove to the beginning of the 4WD road, and just hiked that road up to the summit. Considering we were hiking on a road, it was still a really beautiful and quiet hike. Near the top, it's actually quite open and the view of the basin on one side and McLouglin on the other side are some of the best I've seen within a short drive of Klamath Falls. Highly recommended as a dayhike, though I imagine you could also camp on the summit overnight.

The description was right on. The first 10 miles were on a great road. The last 4.5 are horrible. The views of McLoughlin were spectacular.

Drove most of the way up, then parked and walked the last mile. Hazy from wildfires. Did 6 southwest Oregon P2K's the previous day, a very long weekend of driving.

Hiked the Pelican Butte Road FSR 980 to the summit. It was a sunny and warm day, with good visibility. Met several ATVs on the descent.

Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2011
Camped 0.25 miles in on summit road and then hiked 4.25 mile up to summit starting at 6am. Mosquitos at morning weren't bad. Summit was awesome (lookout was locked). Got picks and headed down to protect future children from RF exposure. On the way down mosquitos were intense.

Snow was pretty heavy (3 to 4 feet above 7300' or so), but it was compact so easy to walk on.

Snowshoed up the access road to the first switchback then climbed up the open slopes to the summit. Nice views of the neighboring peaks through the broken clouds.

Hike-a-biked up the service road. Was able to ride maybe .6 of a mile of the 4.6 mile road. Fairly hot day. Road is fairly loose gravel and dust. Up in 1:40, down in 18 minutes, 45 seconds.

Sp'er Bob Bolton and I had just finished Aspen Butte, a 12 mile effort north of Pelican Butte and so we drove up to the top of Pelican Butte to finish the day with a stellar view. A bitter cold north wind made our visit short but we located the USGS Benchmark and the highest point. Outstanding viewpoint. No climb involved but it might make a great snowshoe outing if you are truly dedicated.
