Description:
The Menagerie Wilderness is a designated wilderness area located near Mount Washington in the central Cascade Range of Oregon. It is situated near Highway 20 within the Willamette National Forest and is managed by the US Forest Service.

Geography

The Menagerie Wilderness is situated around a series of rock pinnacles each uniquely named from the imagination of past climbers; hence the name, Menagerie.

Recreation

The primary recreational activities in Menagerie Wilderness are hiking and rock climbing, but camping and wildlife watching are popular among some visitors. There are only a few established trails in the Menagerie, most notably Trout Creek Trail and Rooster Rock Trail - both of which lead to Rooster Rock. Visiting other pinnacles requires a cross-country hike over steep, rugged terrain.Central Oregon Wilderness Areas (Cascades to the Coast), by Donna Aitkenhead, p. 34

Vegetation

Vegetation in Menagerie Wilderness is primarily second growth Douglas-fir, western hemlock, and western red cedar. Much of the understory consists of vine maple, salal, and sword fern.
