Update October 3:
The Dollar Lake fire is finally contained and most trails are back open including the Yocum Ridge trail. We will hike on the 8th, rain or shine. Be prepared for weather.
End of update
What's nice about Yocum Ridge is that it's so remote. There aren't any other alpine areas on Mount Hood as far away from a trailhead. The early sections of this hike are among the busiest around Mount Hood, but after three miles you'll start on the Yocum Ridge Trail you'll enjoy some of the best solitude the region can offer!
Distance: 14 miles
Elevation gain: 3,600 feet
Bring: Minimum 2 liters of water, ten essentials, good hiking boots, non cotton clothing, sun screen, lunch, snacks
