Activity Notes

The copious flowers on Yocum Ridge normally peak in mid August, but everything was delayed this year, so we might get lucky. In any event, absent complete cloud cover, we'll be treated to a close-up view of Mt Hood at our lunch spot. We'll start out on the Ramona Falls Trail, which features a high log crossing of the Sandy River; folks will balance or footing issues may want to choose a different hike. The Yocum Ridge Trail is more of a ramp, and there are no real steep stretches as we gain 3,880' to 6,825'. This is a challenging route, though, and it takes an average of ten hours to hike 18.4 miles round-trip.
