Midwest born, now residing in the PNW and exploring everything that it has to offer one trail at a time.
Absolutely stunning right now! It is almost a little early for peak, but plenty of wildflowers and butterflies to be seen along the creek. The beginning (and therefore, the end) is a little exposed, so be sure to do it early if it's hot. Very cool to see the new growth trees amongst the burn areas. Bring bug spray!
Absolutely stunning right now!
Hands down one of my favorite hikes in the Mt Hood area. Be prepared to walk across a log, but also be prepared for amazing views. Definitely do the hike as the loop- you won't want to miss the variety!
