Mount June is the tallest peak in the undesignated Hardesty Mountain wilderness area about 20-25 miles east/southeast of Eugene, Oregon and offers an easy trail to a rocky-topped summit with views from Mt. Hood to Diamond Peak. The summit is the site of a former fire lookout. In the 1920's, there was a 50 foot pole platform there which was then replaced with a wooden tower and cabin quarters. Long since abandoned and detroyed, the only thing left are some foundation pillars and a couple of USGS markers.
There is an easy trail of just over a mile and 900 feet elevation gain to the summit but this one also is connected to nearby Hardesty Mountain and many other trails that would allow multiple ways to reach the summit including an 18 mile round-tripper with over 4000 feet of elevation gain for those traiing for much bigger things. The easy trail can also be combined with the Sawtooth Trail to bag Hardesty and get in almost 10 miles with 2100 feet of elevation gain.
Views of other nearby Old Cascades peaks include Fairview Peak, Bohemia Mountain and the rocky pillar, Sawtooth Rock (which is on the connecting trail to Hardesty Mountain). And even though this peak is fairly close to one of Oregon's larger towns, be on the lookout for large wildlife including deer and black bear (who like to browse in the meadows).
Enjoy these areas while you can. The Clinton Administration passed the Roadless Area Conservation Rule to protect this and 2 million other acres in Oregon but the Bush Administration repealed that putting this area at risk. This is not intended to be a political statement, I could care less about either of them, just trying to prompt you to enjoy these areas before loggers or suburbs get them.
