Run along Eliot Glacier's East Moraine for endless views of Hood and surrounding Cascade volcanoes

Trail Run Project Staff

Features -none-

Description

This trail can be accessed starting from the parking lot near Cloud Cap Inn then heading up the Timberline Trail #600 to the junction. From here you can go right to get on the East Moraine trail (and have grand views the whole time of hood) or stay left and keep going on the Timberline and then at the Rock Shelter Loop around to the East Moraine trail and head back to the parking lot. The run goes along the moraine and through boulders of all sizes and pockets of sand but the trail is clearly visible as you work your way across. On clear days you can see more Cascade volcanoes off in the distance.
