The guidebook clearly spelled out where the trailhead was but for some reason, I couldn’t find it. I drove in circles and then went up one road and then another before I finally stopped the car and reread the description. I really made the whole thing much more difficult than it needed to be.
Hamilton Mountain is a beautiful hike that has everything you could want: flowers, waterfalls, and gorgeous views. Plus it isn’t that difficult of a hike and fairly close to Portland.
