Sahalie Falls Tr667C combines with Umbrella Falls Tr667 to make a short CW loop, with the two falls to add to the scenery of this non-destination ride.
The nearby nordic center has some XC Ski trails to wander around on, and the ski resort has some access roads which can be used to create a 9mi figure 8 loop.
Climb around Mt Hood Meadows? Feel free to skip this portion of the ride.
Find the south service road near the lift, ascend to the top. Pass by the two chairlifts (quad and dual), then take the service road back to the resort parking lot.
Timberline Trail 600, Pacific Crest Trail 2000-G and surrounding trails form a hub and spoke trail system around Mount Hood in classic Pacific Northwest trails circumnavigating Mount Hood with alpine vistas, waterfalls, alpine meadows and west side Cascade forest.
This section of the Pacific Crest Trail extends from Barlow Pass to Lolo Pass, with Timberline Trail 600 surrounding the north and east sides of Mount Hood at the treeline, from Yocum Ridge to Timberline Lodge.
Timberline Trail 600 was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930’s, with challenging glacial-fed drainages crossing Newton, Coe, Muddy Fork, Sandy and White Rivers.
Wilderness permits are required and locator beacons are suggested. Mount Hood Summit info.
Elk Meadows Tr645 traverses the eastern flank of Mount Hood alongside Bluegrass Ridge Tr647.
From Elk Meadows Tr645, Newton Creek Tr646 provides a steep (1000' in 1.8mi) access to Timberline Trail 600.
Between Cloud Gap and Newton Creek (6mi), Timberline Trail 600 has one unbridged stream crossing, at Newton Creek, which can be challenging depending on weather conditions. Expect early season snow field crossings at higher elevations, requiring careful footing. There are a few established campsites, near Gnarl ridge and on the south side of Newton Creek crossing. The 5.6mi section from Newton Creek to the Pacific Crest Tr2000-G crosses the unbridged Clark Creek and White River, which can be difficult-to-dangerous. Water flow increases during the day, due to rising temperatures, so early morning is the best time to attempt those water crossings.
