TBT Hiking Post from Hubby - Saddle Mountain

Happy Thursday! Today's Throwback Thursday post from Hubby is of a hike up Saddle Mountain in Oregon. We were visiting my sister who lives West of Portland and my new nephew. This hike is on the way to Cannon Beach and a fun one! I remember it being pretty open at the top with cool views!

The hike starts in a nice forest: 
You get above the trees about 1 to 1.5 mi into the hike: 
Here's the final bit to the summit, the steepest part of the hike:

This is a popular hike. I guess we started early enough to avoid crowds going up, but we passed quite a few people on the way down. Trail is 5 miles and ~2000ft. round trip. It's a nice hike if you are in the area.


  1. Great pics! I like that hike! I need to go back there one of these days. :P

  2. Thanks! Yeah, you can take the kids one day! :)
