6.78 miles of hiking • 3000' elevation gain •

Trail became entirely snow covered at 5300' and that is where I donned the micro spikes. I got as far as 6000' before I had to bail a couple of 100' from the summit due to unstable snow conditions. Probably could have made it to the top if I had brought crampons and an ice axe. Oh well, live and learn. Nice views though of the Goat Rocks, Mt. Adams and Mt. Hood from the summit saddle.


Jen and nuizontann heart this trip.

Interesting area! I almost did Pompey Peak a few years ago, but was put off by all the off-road vehicles zooming around. I suppose the snow keeps them away or down low this time of year.

Maybe because it was a Thursday, but once I got on FS Rd. 20 I did not see anyone all day. There was no evidence of ORV use on the trail....i.e. tread was good with no ruts.
