Yocum Ridge Trail #771 Professional Reviews and Guides
"How’s this for the perfect hiking fantasy? A magnificent alpine ridge that protrudes from the slopes of a towering, snow-clad peak, where visitors can enjoy unequaled views not only of the bulky peak but also a sea of forested mountains, distant volcanoes, and deep river valleys. Wildflowers grow in incredible abundance, adding color and an intoxicating aroma to the gentle breezes that waft over your grandstand seats. On a hot summer day, those breezes are naturally air-conditioned by nearby glaciers. And from those glaciers, loud cracking resonates, alerting you to the movement of these great rivers of ice. Yocum Ridge is this fantasy come to life. But get in shape first, because the trail is no Sunday stroll in the park."
--Douglas Lorain, 100 Classic Hikes in Oregon (The Mountaineers Books).
