Ascent Trip Report

Middle Mountain is accessed from Hwy 35 in the Hood River area. find South Gilhouley Road and turn onto this good gravel road, zero your odometer, and head west. At 1.7 take the left fork, and at 1.8 take the right fork. You will see a big celll tower ahead, but this tower is not on the high point. At 2.6 miles turn right onto a lesser road. The good road goes to the cell tower. You could park here and walk the rest of the way because this road is a bit overgrown. Drive past a skinny antenna at 3.0 miles and at 3.1 reach the high point of the road. The high point of Middle Mountain is under one of the bushes that are on both sides of the road. I had some good views of Mt Hood and Mt Adams on the drive up. The high point is brushy and forested.
