Description

At 8,514 feet, Cooper Spur is the highest point reached by formal trail on Mount Hood. From the rocky summit, there are stunning views of Mount Hood's north face, the massive ice falls of the Eliot Glacier, and views across the smooth ice of the Newton Clark Glacier. Oregon's high desert country spreads out to the east, and the orchards of the Hood River Valley spread out to the north. The large boulder perched on the narrow saddle between Cooper Spur and Mount Hood is Tie-In-Rock, the traditional spot where climbers rope up before continuing toward the summit. Other highlights at Cooper Spur include several stone windbreaks used for nearly a century by climbers and the etched signature in a small boulder left by a Japanese climbing party in the early 1900s.
