This trail offers nice views of Mt. Hood and is relatively unobstructed the entire length. This trail takes you through the Mt. Hood Skibowl Resort south of Government Camp. Traveling east to west, visitors will follow a dirt road for 1.1 miles before entering the Mt. Hood Skibowl Resort boundary. From here the trail turns to single track and travels through the base area of the Mt. Hood Skibowl Resort. The trail gains only 200’ over 1.5 miles. The trail is best skied from west to east. Please help develop and maintain separate cross-country ski and snowshoe tracks.
