Hiking during COVID-19 pandemic

  • All participants must wear facial masks and practice social distancing during Senior Healthy Hikers group events.
  • We will no longer carpool to the trailhead. Participants are responsible for their own transportation.
  • Driving directions (with the beginning point at Gresham City Hall) will be distributed at least three days prior to the event.

Hike details

  • Distance: About 5 miles
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Elevation gain: 1,200 feet
  • Trail conditions: Forest trail with rocks and roots
  • Round-trip travel: 84 miles

This hike on Bald Mountain is on the west side of Mt. Hood, up Lolo Pass Road. The trailhead starts at 3,900-foot elevation and climbs to 5,100-foot elevation. There are stunning views of Mt. Hood, wildflower meadows, and alpine streams. For the first half mile, the trail is rocky with exposed roots, climbing through old growth forest before joining the Timberline Trail. Soon there are views of the Muddy Fork of the Sandy River valley 2,000 feet below and wildflower meadows, with Mt. Hood just across the valley. We will have lunch at one of the view points. The trail passes through forested sections and open meadows.

Bring a lunch, snacks, and water. Hiking shoes/boots required. Sunscreen and insect repellent are also recommended. A National Forest Pass is required to park at the trailhead. The road for the last 1.5 miles to the trailhead is gravel, with some potholes, but four-wheel drive is not necessary.

For more information about this hike please contact Linda Matthews at 503-766-9443 or lindaraematthews@gmail.com.

Senior Healthy Hikers asks that participants be 50 or older. A couple wishing to hike is welcome if one member of the couple is 50 or better.

Pets are not permitted on our hikes or walks.
