    Mt Hood - Timberline Trail conditions

    Anyone hit the Timberline Trail for a hike this season? Mostly clear of snow yet?

    If you're looking for a snow free hike, I'd look elsewhere, or wait a few weeks.

    From my BC skiing travels over the last several weeks...

    - Snow at and below Timberline Lodge.
    - Mt Hood Meadows snow levels are 300-400' above the base area.
    - Elk Cove on the north side has snow.
    - Snow level on the Cooper Spur side is around the Tilly Jane Hut. The road to Copper Spur is supposed to open sometime mid July.

    There are plenty of TH's that you can access the Timberline trail for a shorter snow free hike, but I don't think you'll be able to do the complete trail without post holing through knee deep snow for long stretches.

    Check out "Portland Hikers" for good up to date beta on trail conditions.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    It's a rare year that it is mostly clear of snow before late July. Last time I did the full loop was in Sept. a couple years ago and there were still a few patches.

    Any guesses on how far you can make it from Timberline Lodge before hitting significant snow?
