Day after Christmas snowshoe at Trillium Lake near Mount Hood: about 5 miles with 200 ft elevation gain
This is an easy snowshoe hike near Mount Hood. The trail is along a road that is closed in the winter, with the lake and Mount Hood in view about half-way around. The trail shared with cross country skiers and snowmobiles. Signs direct the snowshoers to keep off the tracks for skiers. On the west side of the loop, there are several cabins that can be rented, though the road is closed, so you’d have to snowshoe and/or ski in.
