cross country skiing
Located twenty miles east of the city of Portland, Oregon and the northern Willamette River valley, the Mt. Hood National Forest extends south from the strikingly beautiful Columbia River Gorge across more than sixty miles of forested mountains, lakes and streams to Olallie Scenic Area, a high lake basin under the slopes of Mt. Jefferson.
Nice little gem at Mt Hood National Forest. Entertaining hike with quite some waterfalls and nice views onto the Clackamas river on the way to the Pup Creek Falls. Had to do some scrambling here and there due to fallen trees and landslides. Pup Creek Falls were pretty cool! So much bigger than expected!
I did it with my dog(chihuahua)and when it was snowing(February) and it wasn't really the most difficult even though I almost died once(I usually almost die around 7 times ) climbing up the ice covering the left side of the fork . the hike was truly beautiful and great experience.
the best experience!
