Mt. Hood’s Elk Cove

Hiker: Wesley Chancellor

Favorite Oregon Hike: Mt. Hood’s Elk Cove

Hiking Tips: Mt. Hood’s Elk Cove is a wildflower wonderland if visited at the right time — usually late July, early August. Barret spur is a short 2.5 mile hike from elk cove. It is however a serious butt burner. At just about 1100 feet elevation gain per mile. Trekking poles are a big help on the way down. Or make a quick decent jump on one of the glaciers and glissade down!
