Yocum End

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Mount Hood and Yocum Ridge from the end of the Yocum Ridge Trail (Jerry Adams)
After the end of the official trail, the trail continues. Across this rocky slope there isn't much of a trail but it's possible to find a route. Head up to the ridge to the left of the cliffy area (Jerry Adams)

The official Yocum Ridge Trail ends at mile 7.7, but you can continue another mile up a trail just as good as the official trail. There's a knoll with a spot you could sleep, but just barely. About 0.2 miles further is a nice campsite. You shouldn't find too many people here.

At mile 8.5 (6800') the trail becomes impassable.

You get great views to the north, including the viewpoint on the trail going up to McNeil Ridge. You can barely see the large rock next to the trail at the viewpoint.

See McNeil Lower Viewpoint for view up to here from the viewpoint on the trail leading up to McNeil Ridge.
