Douglas Trail to Wildcat Mountain Hike   (TH | <—   —> | LOG)

Driving Directions

Drive 30 miles east of Portland on Highway 26 to Firwood Road, located at Shorty's Corner, about two miles east of Sandy. Turn right onto Firwood and continue a short distance before following Firwood right at a 3-way stop, then through several turns until reaching Wildcat Mountain Road at a 4-way stop, 3.4 miles from Highway 26.

From the Firwood Road junction, turn left onto Wildcat Mountain Road (Forest Road 36) and follow this paved, two-lane road for 8.9 miles to the Mount Hood National Forest Boundary, where the road narrows to one lane with turnouts, and becomes Road 3626. Drive carefully here - sight distances are poor due to overgrown shoulders in many sections.

Reach a unsigned fork at 9.4 miles, where the paved spur to the Douglas Trail heads downhill and to the right. Turn right, and follow this paved spur, immediately going left at a second unmarked fork 100 yards from the first junction. The road narrows, and the paved route climbs through dense woods for a short distance before ending at the Douglas Trailhead.

Target shooters are abundant along the roads around here. Use caution when hiking and driving in this area.
