This is a point-to-point tour of the north side of Wy'east (Mt. Hood) between Tilly Jane TH on the east side of the mountain and Ramona Falls TH on the west side, tagging 4 prominent high points along the way: Cooper Spur (end of trail @ 8,899'), Barrett Spur (high point @ 7,800'), McNeil Point (Ho Rock @ 6,900'), and Yocum Ridge (end of trail @ 7,000').   These are the 4 classic high points on the mountain that have established trails to them, all branching off the Timberline Trail to access higher alpine terrain.  A great way to explore some of the amazing alpine terrain on the less-traveled north side.  Similar in mileage to the full loop around the mountain (Timberline Trail) but with an extra 5,000+ ft. of climbing and steeper, more alpine terrain.
