Description

The trailhead is easy to spot from the parking lot and starts off on a old jeep-trail up to the lookout tower site. The first part of the trail meanders through beautiful meadows and be on the lookout for berries along the trail. Once at the top theres a 360 view of the surrounding areas and a grand view of Hood itself. Take the loop back down for another scenic view through the trees with Mt. Hood popping in and out along the way. Ends back at the trailhead in the meadows where the hike up started.
