Cairn Basin and Elk Cove Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Mountain scenery doesn’t get much better than what you find on the north side of Mt. Hood. This hike, which traverses almost the entire length of this alpine wonderland, is bound to be spectacular. Wildflowers crowd mountain meadows, creeks come tumbling down from massive glaciers, views extend to distant peaks and up to the cliffs and ramparts of Mt. Hood, and wildly scenic camps invite overnight stays. Bring your camera, pack along a flower identification guide, and savor a mountain wilderness at its finest."
