Mt Hood trails....bugs?

Post by six_keys » August 10th, 2018, 7:16 am

I was looking for a "bug report" but couldn't find one. I am hiking on Saturday and was considering McNeil Point or East Zig Zag. Any current bug reports on those areas? Any other trail suggestions? (looking for 7-9 miles) Thank you!

After being up near Paradise Park Loop trail, I bought 2 bug nets. Glamourous!
