Mirror Lake and Tom, Dick & Harry Mountain, Mt. Hood October 6, 2017 (#49)
Sunny skies, shady forest, bright red huckleberry and vine maple on the scree slopes, reflections of Mt Hood in Mirror Lake, five cascade volcanoes in view at the top. Total distance 6.6 miles, 1500 feet.
We have hiked here in every season, including with micro spikes on on New Years Day 2014, a low snow year; and a failed snowshoe attempt in January of 2016, when the snow above the lake was too deep to find a safe trail. Spring and summer flowers, brilliant fall color, fabulous views when not cloudy. The trail is overly popular for good reason.
