Heather Canyon

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Upper Heather Creek Falls, Timberline Trail (bobcat)
Looking up Heather Canyon, Timberline Trail (bobcat)


One of the most scenic areas of Mount Hood is where the Timberline Trail crosses Heather Creek, a tributary of Clark Creek, just east of the Mount Hood Meadows ski area. In Heather Canyon a series of waterfalls tumbles below the trail. When the glaciers are at full melt, it can be a little tricky to cross Heather Creek here. The wildflower display lasts well into the summer. A couple of campsites can be found upstream from the crossing.
