Exploring a popular hike on Mt. Hood.

Thursday, 06-July-2017

 

There are nearly infinite hikes on Mt. Hood – and they’re all gorgeous.  To keep pushing my endurance and hiking, we picked one of the simpler ones this time… While doing Dog Mountain was awesome, it was definitely too strenuous.  moving a bit slower was the name of the game.

We picked Ramona Falls – an extremely popular trail on the side of Hood that ends in a beautiful waterfall cascading down the side of a basalt rock face.  It’s not short, but doesn’t have a huge elevation gain.  Perfect for recovery and endurance.

 

Basic details

Distance: ~ 7.5 miles

Elevation change: ~1000 ft

Views:  See pictures!

I am an adventurer. I've been many things in my life; a machinist, a mechanical designer, a training coordinator, a facilities consultant, and a seasonal construction worker. But through it all, I've kept my love of adventure and exploration strong, through rock climbing, backpacking, cycling, exploring, and trying new things. The rush of adventure is intoxicating, and the thrill of discovery and exploring is unbeatable.
