Whetstone Mountain Trail #3369

  

This trail climbs through old-growth stands up toward Whetstone Mountain from both ends and follows the ridgeline on which Whetstone Mountain resides. You can catch a glimpse of Mt. Hood near the top of this hike. Elevation gain is substantial from both ends and provides a moderate to difficult challenge.
