Ascent Trip Report

Hiked the Mt. Mcloughlin trail to the summit. Only a few patches snow on the trail. Requires a fee of 5 dollars a day (standard Volcano Pass needed to park at numerous trailheads throughout the Washington and Oregon Cascades) to park at the trailhead. Can be purchased in advance online, at any nearby ranger station, and sometimes by self-issue at the trailhead itself. This was a nice warm-up to climbing other Cascade peaks later in the week. Took about 5 hrs 15 min round trip. A popular trail hike on summer weekends.
