High Point

This is one of the top routes in the state, offering a bit of everything: tough climbs, scenic traverses through flower-laden alpine meadows, and unparalleled views of the backside of Oregon’s iconic Mt. Hood, seldom seen by most visitors to the state. The final descent will have your forearms burning and your brakes squealing in protest as you burn through thick forest down into the exposed scrub oak. Chattering over talus and through tight switchbacks (blasted into the hillside with dynamite), you’ll be one of the few if you can make it though without dabbing.
