Trail Information

Highlights

From dense second growth forest to exposed shelf road to alpine meadow, Grasshopper Road has a little bit of everything. The lower third of the trail is paved and smooth while the upper two thirds become increasingly rocky and narrow. The shelf road affords sweeping vistas of the basin to the south and the White River area where the famed Barlow Trail once brought pioneer wagon trains across the Cascades to the Willamette Valley. At the terminus of Grasshopper Road, expansive alpine meadows tumble down the ridge hiding a small, idyllic Forest Service campground.
