Description
Gunsight Ridge Trail, #685 has constant short climbs, dips, and several technical sections. At just over five miles long the trail parallels FR-3550, even joining the road at a few discreet points. The trail dips in and out of the forest, across open meadows, and reaches a high point of 5920 feet. Here soak in the wide open views of Mt. Hood to the west by hiking a short distance off the trail out on the rocky outcrop. The trail dips and then climbs again wrapping around Gunsight Butte before sharply descending to Gumjuwac Saddle at its northern end.
