Sheep Lake and Olallie Butte

The Olallie Scenic Area is a United States Forest Service designated scenic area located in the southeastern corner of the Mt. Hood National Forest.

The Olallie Scenic Area was formed by glaciers in the distant past, but is now a plateau covered in small lakes and outrageous scenery. The region is mostly forested with Noble fir, western hemlock, cedar species, pacific silver fir, mountain hemlock and several other tree species. The Pacific Crest Trail crosses the area and is connected to a large number of smaller trails that allow the visitor access to many of the lakes. The Olallie Scenic Area is located just north of Mount Jefferson, which is the prominent feature to the south and offers a spectacular backdrop to an already gorgeous environment. Olallie Butte is the most prominent feature of the area and is located on the western border of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation and overlooks the area from the south and north.

We will be meeting at Calvin on Saturday June 24 at 7 AM. The drive to the trail head will take about two and a half hours.

The hike will start at the western end of the Red Lake Trail #719 which is near the community of Breitenbush. We will backpack into and camp at one of the following lakes along the trail - Red, Averill, Wall, Sheep, Little Spud or Big Spud. The distances to the lakes are between 1.8 and 3.2 miles and it will be up to a consensus and energy levels during the hike as to where best to setup camp. The total elevation gain is between 1000-1200 feet. We will probably make a short day hike from our camp to the top of Potato Butte where views of Mt Jefferson and Olallie Butte can be seen.

The area is known for mosquitoes so adequate repellent / protection should be used.

The lakes have had various types of trout planted in them in the past so fishing gear (and appropriate license) could also be brought along.

Scouts and adults should bring their own sack lunch for Saturday. We will plan and have Saturday dinner / desert and Sunday breakfast / lunch as patrols.

Cell phones and video games are not allowed on this outing...even for the drive there.

We will return scouts to their homes Sunday afternoon.

We invite you to join us for an unusual Troop 799 outing.  We will explore the colorful ancient landscapes of the John Day Fossil Beds.

We plan to setup a base camp along the John Day River.  From there we will conduct excursions to the 3 units of this National Monument (Sheep Rock, Painted Hills, and Clarno).   Evidence of volcanic activity, environmental changes, and ancient plant and animal life abounds. The monument offers many opportunities at each unit to explore these dramatic landscapes.  We’ll also visit the state of the art Thomas Condon Paleontology Center. During free time fishing will be one of the activity options.

We also plan to visit a site where we can legally search for and keep fossils.


See this LINK for pictures and more information on the trip.
