Mount Hood is home to some of Oregon's most jaw droppingly beautiful trails, old-growth forests, wildflowers, and streams. Eli Boschetto, author of the brand new Day Hiking Mount Hood guide, takes you on a virtual tour of some of the more off-the-beaten-path trails where you'll be able to enjoy the mountain safely as we temporarily adjust our hiking habits in light of current health concerns.
Of course, it isn't enough just to enjoy Mount Hood. These precious public lands deserve and need protection. Oregon Wild's Erik Fernandez discusses efforts to chart a new vision for recreation and conservation around Mount Hood, it's carbon rich old-growth forests, rivers, trails, and wildlife.
You can find additional information on permits and the latest news on Eli's website Day Hiking Mount Hood and you can purchase his books through Mountaineers at a 25% discount using the code TIMETOREAD at checkout.
