Great endurance hike begins with the hike in to Ramona Falls, then continuing up the Timberline Trail to the Yocum Ridge junction, climbing through dense forest to a high alpine meadow with unparalleled views of the west side of Mt. Hood. Head around the ridge for a little more climbing to get up even closer to the mountain. Portland Hikers Link
