Finally, It’s Here!

Spring has come to the mountains!

The sky is Carolina Blue with a few white, fluffy clouds. The snow is melting and the temperatures are getting just right for a visit to Mount Jefferson State Natural Area.
The trees are beginning to bud, the grass is turning green and soon there will be newborn animals everywhere!

The In It to Win It” 100 Mile Challenge Giveaway Campaign launched on March 23, 2018. Check out for more information on the 100 Mile Challenge.

Also, check out the Events/Programs link on the website for Ranger-led hiking programs on the mountain. There are usually several to choose from each month. Bring a picnic lunch and take a stroll out to Luther Rock, enjoying the Summit, Rhododendron and Lost Province trails along the way.  Or, take a hike up the Mountain Ridge Trail for a little extra fun and exercise.
