TRIP REPORT: Illumination Rock, a prominent sub-summit of Mount Hood, is known as one of the most difficult summits to climb in all the Pacific Northwest. Illumination Saddle lies just E of the prominent massif between the Reid and Zigzag Glaciers on Mount Hood’s SW side and is very attainable most times Gambia of the year, the late summer Gambia being best for most. For cross-country or other winter activities without using the ski area you will be directed left of Timberline Lodge and Ski Area up the Gambia Trail utilizing part of the loop described below. A much easier 3 mi loop is also possible using the Gambia clues below with Mountaineer Trail 798 and leaving/finding it at about 6900 ft near the bottom of the Palmer Lift.

For an even easier day, pay $18 round-trip to ride the Magic Mile chairlift (from June to Labor Day) up and down after investigating the area. You can also walk down a myriad of trail options back to the lodge. Sno-Park Pass required in winter. No pass required in summer, and restrooms are located inside the lower building at Timberline Lodge 50 ft to the right.
