How many days for CRG/Mt. Hood area?

Right now we have 4 days planned for hiking in the CRG/Mt. Hood area. Does this look ok? We are looking to cut it to 3 days if possible. Not sure what to cut out?

* Day 1 - Eagle creek to Tunnel Falls

* Day 2 - Multnomah Falls + Elowah Falls hike

* Day 3 - Dog Mountain

* Day 4 - Vista Ridge Trail

all are good hikes- when are you coming will help make a better decision....

May/June is wildflower peak on Dog Mountain- Vista Ridge is probalby only acessible July/August with wildflowers...

To me, day 1 and 2 would be similar experiences...

You might consider taking some time to take a drive up beside Hood River to see Timberline Lodge. Sitting on our tallest mountain in Oregon, it has snow year round and is a lovely drive.

Most people who plan less time come into the Multnomah Falls Visitors Center and are sad they didn't plan on more time there. There is a lot more there than just hiking..

Best,

We are coming mid-July. Maybe vista ridge then? We love waterfalls and are aware the first two days are similar haha! Thank you for your help!

No worries. Day one and two are not the same. Similar only in that they include waterfalls.... But different ones. There are so many waterfalls in this area and none with either access nor waterfall are the same. You will enjoy yourself. I have a coffee table book called Waterfall Lovers Guide Pacific Northwest by Gregory A Plumb and I love it.
