Details

We will hike from Timberline Lodge to Paradise Park on the west side of Mount Hood via the Timberline Trail/PCT. Mileage in will be 5 and ½ miles with about 1200 feet of elevation gain. Paradise Park should afford good day hiking in the meadows above the Timberline Trail after setting up camp to spend one night. Hike out will be a group decision, either down the Paradise Park Trail, 6.3 miles out with a loss of 3000 feet, or the more scenic route past Ramona Falls. If we go out past Ramona Falls, mileage is approximately 9 miles with a loss of about 3000 feet. There is a ford at the Sandy River that could be difficult if we go out via Ramona Falls. Deadline July 25. Limit 6 participants
