Cooper Spur, Mount Hood Professional Review and Guide

"This road leads to the highest hiking trail on Mt. Hood, Oregon’s highest peak. It also features two campgrounds, an old lodge, many other trailheads, and a close-up view of the Eliot Glacier. Moderate. A wide, slow, steep gravel road with many switchbacks—a few rough spots."

Super tough climb, but a wonderful hike. Gorgeous views of Mt. Hood. Bring lots of water, be prepared for wind at the top! Sunscreen is a must.

Cooper spur area of Mt Hood is the north side gateway to not only the timberline trail,39 mile around the mountain, and many climbing routes but also some of the most scenic and close to home hiking in the Portland Oregon area.Just remember that living at 200 ft above sea level and then hiking in this area at 4000 to 7000 ft requires some conditioning.Enjoy forest,alpine meadows or pure mountain rock and ice enviroments.Take your pick.Just remember that these are active glaciers and all exposed rock on this mountain is rotten volcanic rock.
