Yocum Ridge

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Looking up Yocum Ridge to Mount Hood (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 8.7, 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.

You get great views to the north, including the viewpoint on the trail going up to McNeil Ridge. You can see down to a wide bench below the present terminus of the Sandy Glacier. There are also expansive views from Mount Rainier to the Three Sisters and Broken Top.
