7.2 miles of hiking • 750' elevation gain •
I was scouting a fieldtrip and took a short jaunt down the road from Rooster Rock and then drove up to the closed winter gate on Larch Mountain road and hiked a ways down Palmer Mill road which is the road that heads Northish toward the river and eventually eastish to Multnomah Basin. It was amazingly lovely. 100's of shades of green and 5 or 6 springs and creeks that feed Bridal Veil Creek. I loved it.
