This trail will test your mettle; it is a straight, unrelenting march up several switchbacks. Why bother? Because you will experience a beautiful, rugged part of the upper Hood River valley and stand on the edge of the Badger Creek Wilderness, a majestic and rarely visited part of the Mount Hood lowlands. In past visits to this terrain I’ve spotted hawks, owls, and bear tracks. There are a few opportunities for views across the Badger Creek area, and even Mount Hood might deign to show itself if the weather cooperates.
