Sometimes we just have to do a hike twice. It’s just that epic; that worth redoing that we’ll drive 100 miles out of our way just to do a single hike again. Such is Cooper Spur, high on the side of Mt. Hood, spectacularly showcasing the Elliot Glacier, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, Mt. Rainier, Mt. Jefferson, and the lowlands surrounding the Columbia River. The trail itself has views most of the way up, leading to one of the highest dayhiker-accessible points on Mt. Hood. And at not quite 8 miles round trip, well, wouldn’t you want to hike it?
