Highway 35 to Interstate 84 Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"In this short section, the hiker traverses around Oregon’s highest and most popular peak, glacier-robed Mt. Hood. If you start your hike at Timberline Lodge, you can traverse around the peak in one long, though relatively easy, 18.7-mile day. However, hiking in the opposite direction requires considerable effort, for in that direction you have a net (not total) gain of 2520 feet instead of a net loss."
