Mt. Hardesty Trail Details
Old way trail that winds the hillsides of the mountainous region to a now defunct fire lookout tower. Lots of switchbacks and some fun sidehill forest descending.
Be weary of horses and hikers who use this trail frequently. Keep it under control.
Ascend Patterson Mountain Road (near mp 23 or 24 on HWY 5 until you reach the saddle of some mountains (you will know, it is clearly labeled with spur roads to Cottage Groove) The road to your right is the one to pick. .3 miles down the road is a large washout. It is easy to drive through with most trucks or cars with 4wd and very passable by bike. Keep heading down that road until it ends in a parking lot. The trail is very obvious from there. Make sure you do not turn down the Sawtooth trail at any point in the first mile or so.
