Great views. But you will need your big boy pants to get to this point. It's very uphill and you will need plants of water and/or a filter.

This is a great hike. Probably one of my favorites on Mt. Hood. The true distance is around 20 miles.. and worth every step!

One typically gets to the Yocum Ridge trail via Ramona Fall Trail loop, itself a very impressive trail. The portion that is properly Yocum, is indeed all uphill all the time, but never is it too harsh. The trail is well-maintained and Virtually the entire trail is under the forest canopy, and one is only occasionally teased with a brief glimpse of limited views. If the journey seems less than rewarding, the payout at the top makes it all worthwhile. The view is nothing less than spectacular.

Let's get this straight: this is the longest and best day hike on Mount Hood. It is probably best left to backpackers but is so spectacular and well-graded that it can be done as a day hike as well. Past Ramona Falls the trail stays in the forest for a long time before breaking out into some serious "Sound Of Music" scenery. Once there it does not get any better than this on Mount Hood.
