Features Views

The usual federal wilderness area regulations and restrictions apply here. A wilderness permit is required to enter a Wilderness on the Mt. Hood National Forest between May 15 and October 15. Practice Leave No Trace (LNT) backcountry skills and ethics. Camp 100 feet from fragile areas; bury human waste at least 200 feet from water, trails, and campsites. This trail is usually covered by snow from October to June.

Description

This trail basically serves as a connector between Forest Road 2730-200 and Badger Creek. There are some views of Mount Hood from along this trail. From road access at Forest Road 2730-200 (the Flag Point Road), the #477 descends 3.2 miles to its end at Badger Creek Trail #479. From here, you can run the Badger Creek Trail #479 northwest to Badger Lake or descend southeast towards Post Camp Trail #467. The #477 can also be used with the Divide Trail #458 to form loop trips over Lookout Mountain.

Note that this trail no longer follows the alignment below Tolo Creek shown on the USGS and USFS maps.
