Brown Mountain is more accessible and a shorter drive than some of the other southern Oregon peaks. An easier climb than Mount McLoughlin (Route 70), Brown Mountain can be combined with its neighboring peak for a double-summit weekend.

Nestled in the Winema Wilderness, Brown Mountain lies in both the Fremont–Winema and Rogue River–Siskiyou national forests. The mountain, surrounded by lava fields, is a slag heap of a cinder cone like Black Butte in central Oregon (Route 40). In winter, there can be plenty of snow, but later in the spring, bring rock skis—there’s a load of talus and scree. Watch for snowmobilers, and be ready for a long trek in on the road.

Start Point: Brown mountain trailhead, 4800 feet
High Point: Brown mountain summit, 7311 feet
Trail Distance: 6 miles
Trail time: 5 hours
Skill Level: Intermediate
