Elk Meadows/Newton Creek - CANCELED due to SNOW!

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.
