Elk Meadows/Newton Creek
Depends on what you want to do. We can make it a more moderate, 8 mile day and do the Elk Meadows loop or we can take the Newton Creek loop for a longer, harder day. There are a couple bridge-less creek crossings but we always find a way across. There are close-up views of Mt Hood. PRE-REG W/LDR by phone.
