      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] Mt Hood - Timberline Trail (8 hrs, 48 min) 9/28/2014

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt Hood - Timberline Trail (8 hrs, 48 min)


Date: 9/28/2014


Trip Report:

The running viking, Sigurþór Einar Halldórsson, and I ran the Timberline Trail loop on Sunday, and with perfect weather and no hiccups, made it around and back to the car in 8 hours and 48 minutes.


Though not a climb per-se, I've seen this reported here before, and include some photos for your entertainment. I've wanted to run this loop for a long, long time, and I'm really happy that it came together this year.

Gear Notes:

LaSportiva Bushido shoes, Ultimate direction pack, 2200 calories. The whole loop goes fine with only 16 oz of water-carrying capacity.


Approach Notes:

40 miles, 10,000', 7 rivers, one good time.

Nice work! Good write up on the blog too. This one is on my agenda in the next year or three. I assume no water treatment the whole way - just stream refills? Or a Sawyer filter or similar?

Yeah, no water treatment. I've been drinking that water for quite a while with no ill effects. That said, I've never had ill effects from drinking untreated water. Nevertheless, it is all snowmelt water of one sort, usually flowing fast, and not coming from inhabited areas. Don't know that I'd dip into the stream right next to the McNeil point shelter, but I don't hesitate at any stream that I have to slow down to cross.
