Mount Hood, Barrett Spur is a 15.7 mile out and back trail located near Hood River, OR and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking and rock climbing and is accessible from July until October.
Just finished this hike. Still super hard. Brought my dog and that was sort of scary. Definite scrambling at the top.
I wasn't able to make it to the top but my buddy did (he is a mountain climbing machine). Too hot and too little water. I also had a hard time finding the right TH. Mt Hood was gorgeous and I will probably try it again in a year. The Timberline trail was really busy when I went on the weekend, but this trail was relatively empty. Most people were heading to McNeil Point. I would probably recommend McNeil point or Cooper Spur before hiking this.
