Wally's Tie Trail #755A

This trail starts in Government Camp, so for visitors staying there, they can start right out their door. It connects with Crosstown Trail and Skiway Trail, so route options can be expanded. Wally’s has some great views of Mt Hood and Ski Bowl. This trail’s wide clearing is advantageous for skiing and snowshoeing. A short loop can be made when combining Skiway with Crosstown Trail and Wally’s Tie.
