"The hike to Umbrella Falls is a Northwest summertime classic. Along the trail expect to see beautiful alpine meadows filled with beargrass, lupine, paintbrush, and the occasional tantalizing view of Mount Hood. Umbrella Falls lives up to its name visually and is a great area for picnicking and exploring. The viewpoint of Sahale Falls doesn’t offer much but perhaps entices a better view from the old highway." Read more

My favorite lunch break. I start at the Ski lodge and ride the service road up to the Timberline trail (and then walk the bike about ten yards because the Tline is no bikes)to the trail from this point its a fast down hill singletrack w/ one road crossing (watch out for some bridge outings). Then its a hell of a twisty climb back up to the lodge but fun.
