Directions from Hood River: Travel south on Highway 35 for approximately 14 miles to Woodworth Road (one mile north of the community of Mount Hood - watch for winery sign). Follow Woodworth Road three miles west to Dee Highway 281. Follow 281 north for approximately five miles to the Dee Hardboard Plant. Make a sharp left turn, cross the bridge and stay left. Follow the signs to Lost Lake. At the campground entrance sign, turn left onto Road 1340, drive about one mile to Road 1340620 and turn right. The trail comes very close to the road after about 1/4 mile. Watch on the right for a trail closure sign mounted on a tree.

On 5/27/18 no snow. It was a training hike for me. Took us 5 1/2 hrs with some breaks. Good hike with wide, shaded trail that was easy to follow. The hike is a combination of the Boulder Ridge Trail (783a) and seamlessly transitions to the Plaza Trail (783) without any marker to the top. It has long parts along or just underneath the ridge. Great views with lots of open space at the top. Was a very comfortable hike for a hiker with height issues.

Snowshoes were needed for the top hour or so (but didn't need microspikes). Knee- to thigh-deep snow; definitely wish I had at least brought the gaiters. Great views and beautiful forest.

I’m not gonna lie; the trip out is pretty exhausting- 5 miles of constant uphill, a lot of it quite steep. The hike back downhill was no picnic either- make sure you leave yourself enough daylight! The trail is beautiful and very isolated and quiet, and the views of Mt Hood as you climb up are amazing.

Pretty cool forested hike it changes like 6 times the hike is like a cross between Larch Mt. OR. and Dog Mt. Wa. 13 long switchbacks then a long hike up hill not very much to see but the summit is cool with a 360 view of the surrounding Forrest's and mountain ranges it's a good Training Hike for Backpackers around 11 miles total took me 4 hrs total 40 lb pack
