Favorite Snowshoe Hikes
Return to Message Board
I'd be interested in hearing what everyone's favorite snowshoe hikes are within 2 hours of Portland. I enjoyed going up Fuji Creek from the Salt Creek Falls trailhead last year but it was about 3 hours away. I've also been to Elk Meadow which is close and has a nice view of Hood and the Twin Lakes Loop from Frog Lake TH though it doesn't have very expansive views. I went up to White Pass or something like that off of Hwy 35 but the weather was bad so I didn't see much. The Gorge after one of those rare snow/ice storms is amazing. Staying overnight in the Forest Service lookouts is also an awesome experience. They all have great views! I think this winter I want to dig a bigger snowcave and campout so if you've got suggestions on where to do it that would be great!
