Muddy Fork

6.2 Miles Moderate

Mount Hood National Forest
Mount Hood, Oregon


The Muddy Fork hike at Mount Hood National Forest in Mount Hood, Oregon is a moderate 6.2 mile out-and-back trail that leads out to the Muddy Fork canyon and valley. Along the way, you'll pass Bald Mountain, with amazing views of Mount Hood in the distance.

The hike starts off at the Top Spur Trailhead, which is fairly popular. You'll first climb up through coniferous forests for about a half mile before joining the Pacific Crest Trail - take a right-hand turn until you reach the next trail junction. When reaching the 2nd trail junction, you'll be faced with multiple trails - take the trail straight ahead. Immediately after hitting the 2nd trail junction, there will be a 3rd trail junction - stay right at this junction - staying left will head up the Bald Mountain Summit Trail.

Shortly after taking the 3rd turn, you'll come around the side of Bald Mountain with views of Mount Hood. From here on out, you can stay to the right for any further trail junctions.

From the viewpoint at Bald Mountain, you'll continue along passing through forests and eventually end up in the valley along Muddy Fork. From here, you can turn back to complete the hike at 6.2 miles out-and-back.
