Tom, Dick and Harry Mountain Trail 664 Professional Reviews and Guides

"Cross-country skiers avoid this route because it is steep, has multiple switchbacks, and often gets rutted out. This makes it a great spot for snowshoers since these difficulties seldom hinder a determined ’shoer. The only skiers you’re likely to see on top of Tom, Dick and Harry Mountain are backcountry telemark skiers who are after the bounty of powder that awaits in the bowls below the ridgeline summit. Never mind the ridiculous name, it’s a spectacular location; the long ridge of Tom, Dick and Harry faces directly into the southwestern slopes of Mount Hood. According to Lewis McArthur, author of Oregon Geographic Names, the mountain got its name because of the three distinct humps in its half-mile-long summit ridge.

The trailhead is conveniently located at the Mirror Lake Sno-Park on Highway 26. You’ll find it less than a mile from the western limits of Government Camp, which is approximately 90 miles southeast of Portland via Highway 26. The Mirror Lake Sno-Park is really just a wide spot on the sometimes-hectic Highway 26, so watch for the trailhead carefully."

"Tom, Dick, and Harry Mountain is about the closest terrain to Portland for decent turns and, when compared to other below-timberline south-side routes, fairly steep."

We encountered two problems in this late Spring snowshoe: 1. Trail hard to stay on -- after taking the right at the lake, we lost the trail. There are no blue diamonds to help lead the way. Luckily, after wandering a bit, we found the trail because snow had melted off some of the trail. [Snow level was at 4,000, so we started to find snow right after the lake.] 2. On the west side of the trail, there is a wicked cross-slope which proved too much for us. It's very steep, and we could see where one could loose there footing and slide for an awefully long distance. In the end, we deemed it too dangerous. Looking at the map, we definately were on the trail shown. I was tempted to try a more frontal assault from the lake, but I could see where that was also dangerous. In the end, we turned around and abandoned our attempt.

Great little snowshoeing trip. Beautiful postcard views of mirror pond, and plenty of places to slide down on the way back. Steep enough for some pretty good excersize, but not too bad.

Bottom portion around mirror lake was well used and icy. Snowshoes weren't required until the split for TDH mountian. After that point, there were fresh tracks and good snow. Poor visibility made a map, compass, and altimeter essential for route finding. Next time I'll bring my board to make the descent more fun!

I've done this popular hike in summer, but wanted to try the trail in winter. There was sparse snow going up to Mirror Lake, but at the lake and above it was deep - knee deep in places. We did this hike without snowshoes and the going was slow but not too difficult. This mountain is near the pass and it can get windy. Today was no exception, so bring extra gear if you plan to spend any time at the summit (you should anyway). Much of the trail is sheltered from East Winds though. Great views on the north ridge and at the summit. We passed about 2 dozen people today (Saturday).

This is our snowshoe trip up to the mountain. The parking area was crowded, as was the lower part of the trail to Mirror Lake. It was also hard packed and icy. After reaching Mirror Lake, the trail was much better. The snow was softer and the weather was warming. The trail was hard to follow on the center part around the west side of the mountain. It was a gradual climb most of the way to the top with good views to the west. After arriving on top, the veiw was spectacular in all directions. It was mostly cloudy with clearing from the west. You could see Mt Hood in all her splender and could also see Mt Jefferson, Mt Adams, Mt St. Helens and Mt Rainier. The light breeze was chilling while on top but was not present on the way up or down. We decended down the SW ridge above Mirror Lake making our own trail. The powder was deep and we slid down on our rear at times. It took about 2.5 hours to reach the top and about 1.5 to get back to the parking area after spending .5 hours on top. I recommend this hike for a good workout close to Portland, easy to Mirror Lake and abit more difficult to the top. Good fun.
