The Glade Trail is an old ski trail that connects Timberline Lodge Ski Area with Government Camp; it’s the path of an old tramway that long ago used a refurbished city bus suspended from a cable to ferry people from the small town to the antique lodge. The tramway is long gone, but the Glade Trail remains. It is most often ridden one-way from Timberline, but it is an easy up-and-back for beginners, especially for your first tour or when you’re testing new gear. The Glade Trail is one of the gentlest routes in this book, so choose a day with fresh dry snow or firm cold corn to make this trip worthwhile. With its low elevation, slush is common on this trail; it can be a slow-motion trip down. And early or late in the season, the trail can have scant snow cover. But because of the low-angle slope, it is a pretty safe bet when avalanche danger exists on steeper slopes higher up.<\/p>\r\n

It also provides a pleasant alternative to hiking, biking or horseback riding along the shoulder of Highway 26. From Road 20 to 2639, the trail essentially follows along the south side of Highway 26 intersected by both Tollgate Campground and a variety of forest roads. The trail crosses Highway 26 4.6 miles from the beginning, following Road 2639 approximately 100 yards up its east (right) side. There, a yellow metal sign signifying the route of a buried cable indicates the point of continuation.

From 2639, the trail climbs via switchbacks into an open area, part of the 1952 Zigzag burn. The trail then begins to climb, levels off, crosses a saddle, then fluctuates until a scree slope is crossed. A dangerous abandoned mine shaft is passed 6.5 miles from the trailhead. A few hundred yards past the shaft, pass a short spur trail leading to Highway 26
to a point below the Barlow Road Historical Highway marker. From this point the Bridle Trail travels downhill under the old highway via a tunnel and along an abandoned section of road. Stay on the main route, traveling uphill, and cross a small stream twice. The trail switchbacks in a wet area where cedar logs and extensive drainage ditches halt erosion. A few hundred yards further, a wide spur trail to the east (left) leads to Enid Lake, a very shallow, muck bottomed pond.","post_name":"pioneer-bridle-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.3082","lng":"-121.816","distance":"6.6","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/hiking\/pioneer-bridle-trail\/","terms":"a

Although the temptation is great, please stay on the trail and do not shortcut the switchbacks as it causes erosion and trail maintenance problems.<\/p>\r\n

To make a loop, turn south on the PCNST at the four-way junction at Bald Mountain. Follow it 4.9 miles to Ramona Falls. Return to the starting point in just over two miles by following either portion of the Ramona Falls Loop Trail. In addition to the beauty of Ramona Falls, this 11 mile loop offers unique close-up views of Mount Hood's west side.

The lake itself is located in a deep basin in which noise echoes and travels to such a degree that a barking dog can impact everyone's experience. A loop trail around the lakeshore is spattered with colorful wildflowers.

From the lake, the trail steeply descends a rugged slope until it enters an area of severe blowdown which occurred over a period of three years. Use extreme caution because of potential fire hazard.

The 1980 movie – The Shining – used aerial shots of Timberline Lodge as part of its opening scene, and exterior footage for some establishing shots of the fictional Overlook Hotel throughout the movie.

Declared a National Historic Landmark in 1977, Timberline Lodge is one of Oregon’s most popular tourist attractions, drawing nearly two million visitors every year. Considered an architectural wonder, it’s still being used for its original intent—a magnificent ski lodge and mountain retreat for all to enjoy. 

Built in 1936 as a home for skiers and climbers, Timberline is today home to North America's longest ski season. In the height of winter, the ground floor of the lodge is typically fully buried in snow, with entry through a snow tunnel, or directly into the second floor. The lodge together with its cozy rooms, two resident St. Bernards (Bruno and Heidi) pub and restaurant, is a welcome relief after a full day on the slopes.

The western trailhead leads across to Eagle Creek, offering a great connection, especially for equestrians. It also junctions in less than 0.1 miles to a trail that heads up to Eagle Creek Butte. The Douglas Trail continues through the forest for 1.4 miles until it reaches the rough access road (Lee's Ranch Road) to the Eagle Creek Trail. Following this trail downhill for approximately one mile leads to the Eagle Creek Trail.

From the eastern trailhead, the trail climbs in the forest one-half mile until a clear-cut is reached. It is best to check with the Zigzag Ranger District for current information regarding logging as the trail may be impassable. A year round stream, providing the only water on the trail, is located one mile from the trailhead. The trail then climbs until an active rock quarry is reached at 1.9 miles. Use caution crossing this area. There is a confusing spot her where a spur trail leads left to the former site of Douglas Camp. Head right to connect with the rest of the trail. A unique view of the area south across Eagle Creek to Old Baldy is found 0.1 miles further. The trail, now on the ridgetop, alternates between uphill and downhill.

At 3.1 miles, the junction with the McIntyre Ridge Trail is reached. The Douglas Trail then climbs via some short, rutted switchbacks for 0.2 miles to a short way-trail on the right.
