Mount Hood from the meadow near the end of the Yocum Ridge Trail (Jerry Adams)

Description

Towards the end of the official trail is a nice sloping meadow. Many people stop here. The viewpoint looks across the Sandy Canyon’s void to waterfalls gushing down from the Reid Glacier; also in view are Illumination Rock, Yocum Ridge Paradise Park and Zigzag Mountain. Looking west on a clear day, a good eye can see as far out as Portland and the mountains of the coast range, including Elk Mountain and Saddle Mountain.

There is an area to the right of the trail you could find a spot to camp. Be careful not to fall off the cliff.
