Cooper Spur Trail, Mt Hood, Oregon
This is the highest trail on Mt. Hood that doesn't require climbing. There are incredible views of Elliot glacier from above, Mt Hood itself (NE side, really close), and Mt Adams, Mt Rainier, Mt St Helens to the north as well as Mt Jefferson and the Three Sister to the south. This is one of those must-do hikes in Oregon.

Cooper Spur- Mt. Hood
This hike is definitely a new favorite. Beautiful & colorful trek up the east side of Mount Hood to Elliot Glacier. I highly recommend doing this hike around sunset and catching the view. All peaks surrounding Hood lit up in pink and orange- Mt. Saint Helen, Mt. Adams, Mt. Jefferson
