The McIntyre Ridge Trail climbs from the trailhead and passes through a BLM clear-cut. A glimpse of Mount Hood may be seen one mile from the trailhead, but the first of many dynamic viewpoints is found at 2.7 miles. The trail is hard to follow here. The next 1.4 miles climb gradually through a variety of wooded scenes, until the open ridge which is adorned with beargrass and rhododendron is reached. The rest of the trail travels on the open ridge offering abundant views of the Cascades as well as nearby lesser peaks. The trail may be difficult to follow at times so look for a well-defined tread as well as 4X4 inch posts that mark the trail. This hike can be extended by utilizing a car shuttle and continuing on the Douglas Trail #781 to Plaza Trail #783 and then the Bonanza Trail # 786 or the Boulder Ridge Trail #783A. An opportunity for solitude abounds on this trail system. Permits are required for this wilderness trail. They are self- issuing at the trailhead or wilderness boundary.
