Oregon Forest Road Hike

2021 Hike # ; 112

Hike Distance: 7.8 miles

Elevation Gain: 1219 feet

Yearly Hike Distance: 903.6 miles

Yearly Elevation Gain: 103,630 feet

Such a gorgeous day, and we expected crowded trails almost everywhere. So, we decided yet again, to go on a forest road walk. And to no surprise, there were NO people or vehicles on the roads. Add to the solitude the fact that we could see three volcanoes (only the tip of Mt. Adams) and you get a fantastic day!

The highlight of the day was seeing Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Hood clearly. 🙂 There was also plenty of Foxglove and Lupine flowers, for some added color. On previous hikes we’ve been getting a bit more tired, but today we had plenty of energy. We had no complaints on today’s hike, and it was even a good change to travel to the northern Oregon forests.
