Olallie Ridge/Horsepasture Mountain
August 19, 2004
One veteran, one new member, two prospective members
and myself set off on a beautiful summer day to climb the well
maintained, little used, Olallie Ridge trail.
The trail climbs 1900' in 3½ miles through a beautiful
old growth forest.
It then proceeds about one mile through Horsepasture Saddle along
the ridge to the Horsepasture Mountain trail junction, then
climbs 700' in 1.8 miles to the subalpine peak of the mountain.
Great views from Mt. Hood to Diamond Peak despite haze and clouds around
A difficult, but very worthwhile, day long hike.
