Tilly Jane Trail

The Tilly Jane Trail is a challenging hiking route in Mount Hood National Forest that climbs uphill through woodlands and meadows, offering pleasant views of the surrounding landscape. While out on the trail, you will navigate a dense section of forest and some peaceful meadows, before climbing uphill through an area previously ravaged by wildfires in order to reach the Tilly Jane Campground. As a result of wildfires in the area, much of this trail is exposed; be sure to bring plenty of water and adequate protection from the sun.

Route Description for Tilly Jane Trail

Situated in an area previously devastated by a wildfire, the Tilly Jane Trail is a spectacular hike in Mount Hood National Forest that will test your fitness and provide stunning views.

Setting out from the trailhead on Cloud Cap Road, you will make your way to the southwest, passing through a beautiful forest landscape alongside Doe Creek. After passing by the Cooper Spur Ski Area, the trail continues to climb uphill through the tree cover, eventually opening up into a meadow.

Continuing on to the southwest, you will navigate the old burned out section of the forest, taking in the amazing views of the surrounding landscape before arriving at the edge of Tilly Jane Creek. Here, you will cross over the creek to find the endpoint of the hike at the Tilly Jane Campground and Tilly Jane Guard Station. If you aren’t planning on camping overnight, simply retrace your steps back downhill to return to the trailhead where you started.
