The Chucksney Mountain Trail (#3306) is a very difficult 6 mile hike. Starting at the Box Canyon Horse Camp, at an elevation of 3728 feet, follow the Grasshopper Trail 0.25 miles to the junction of the Chucksney Trail. The Chucksney Trail takes you through large trees, meadows and to the top of Chucksney Mt. for a view of the South Fork of the McKenzie River drainage and the Three Sisters Mountains, the trail them loops back to Grasshopper Trail. It's a good day ride for horses but is steep in places.
