Bennet Pass Road Snowshoe and Cross-Country Ski Trail

Bennet Pass Road Snowshoe and Cross-Country Ski Trail

3.0 Miles Moderate

Mount Hood National Forest
Mount Hood, Oregon

Take a 3 mile out-and-back snowshoe hike along a forest road in Mount Hood National Forest, passing several viewpoints along the way. The road is heavily used in winter by snowshoers and cross-country skiiers.

From the trailhead, you will climb at a very steady pace. At the first junction, keep going straight to avoid turning right.

The first viewpoint is a small detour on a road off to the left.

If you choose to keep going past the first initial viewpoint and reach the Terrible Traverse, just keep going down that road that you took to the viewpoint and veer left as it re-joins the main Bennet Pass Road. Follow the road up a series of switchbacks that precedes the Terrible Traverse. The Terrible Traverse is a knife-edge section of the road that travels along the edge of the ridgeline.
