This trail is in the Mount Hood Wilderness and the usual federal wilderness area regulations and restrictions apply here. 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 closed by snow between October and June.
As shown on the Open Street Map (OSM), the Yokum Ridge Trail #771 used to extend beyond its current end at the Sandy River overlook. In the summer, this old piece of trail is easy to find and can be followed up to 2-3 superb campsites at about 6,200 feet. The day and night views from these sites are excellent, as is the sight of Mount Hood looming to the northeast. This is a popular overnight backpacking destination in the summer. Water is available from snow melt or a seasonal tarn. Filter or treat any water you get from these sources.
