Tom Dick & Harry Mtn (snowshoe) | March 2014

Summit:

Tom, Dick & Harry Mountain is a nice late season snowshoe near Mount Hood. It's about 3.2 miles one-way and 1850 feet of gain to bag this four-point summit with iconic views of Mount Hood.

Gales Peak, OR | February 2012

Summit: 
W7O/NC-043

Gales Peak is probably on the "not recommended" list for activations near Portland. Although access is possible, you are not allowed to do it with a motor vehicle, making the six mile round-trip on a logging road fairly unattractive.

Peak 6001, OR (snowshoe) | March 2014

Summit: 
W7O/CN-078

These eleven miles (RT) seem much farther when you are on snowshoes - take that into account if you should decide to try this winter activation.

Peak 2140, OR "Back-up Plan" | Nov 2013

Summit: 
W7O/WV-134

Along Highway 22 between Salem and Detroit there is an easy drive-up summit. The road is passable (with some care) in a passenger car. This summit could be a  back up plan when nearby Rocky Top can't be accessed due to snow.

Peak 4925, OR | Feb 2014

Summit: 
W7O/CN-086

A fairly short hike near Mt. Hood gets you two points - in the summer this activation may be a bit easier - it was too much post-holing in snow (past my knees!) in February.

A near "drive-up" two-point summit in the Clackamas River drainage with good views. This area is likely busy in the summer but it was mostly quiet on this December day.
