This fairly easy trail to several flower-filled bowls at the tree line on Mount Hood is still more than worth the tedious drive to the trailhead. Since 2011, however, it has a whole new character, as several miles of it burned intensely, giving us all a rare chance to watch a forest regrow. I’ve given you several options here, but with a map and my hints, you could easily spend two days enjoying this mountain wonderland.

Not good if you have a pet. Not able to go on all of the trails.
