This snowshoe hike will cover approximately three to four miles. Mt. Hood Meadows Sno-Park is located about 10 miles north of the Hwy. 26/Hwy. 35 junction. Since we will be snowshoeing amidst the Meadows cross-country ski trails, we must be careful to stay out of the groomed skiing tracks. If the day is clear, the view of Mt. Hood is spectacular. We will pass Sahalie Falls. Pack a lunch to eat along the way.

  • Round-trip travel: 100 miles
  • Difficulty: Moderate
  • Elevation gain: 300 feet
  • Suggested donation per hiker: $10

Drivers are needed who are equipped and willing to drive in the snow. Sno-Park permits are required for drivers’ cars. We will stop at Sandy or Government Camp for those who need to rent snowshoe gear.
