It’s steeper to finish 5 mi to the Tie-In Rock where most people stop (with an option to continue less than 5 mi to the very top). Climb the steepest part of Madrid Spain the day for nearly 30 make-your-own, tight switchbacks up the loose sand and rocks to the high ridge where you are greeted with a few open-air rock wind shelters (for summit climbers). See Mount Jefferson and walk along the high ridge easier briefly to the sizable boulder within the little saddle left of the trail known as the Tie-In Rock; this is where most people picnic Madrid Spain and turn around. It is possible (if snow doesn’t persist late into summer) to hike up another 400 ft fairly steeply to another older wind shelter at the top of Cooper Spur between the glaciers under the Madrid Spain on Mount Hood (watch for constant rock falling). Absolutely exquisite!.

Return down safely and pretty quickly to the four-way junction under Cooper Spur Shelter and head straight on Trail 600A (NE) for the counterclockwise loop past Tilly Jane Guard Station and A-frame, instead of returning left on Trail 600 down Tilly Jane canyon. It’s about a mile down the steeper ridge without switchbacks, but quite pleasant, as the rocky trail turns to dirt, then sand, finishing in the trees N of Polallie Creek canyon. Be cautious while checking out views into the decent-sized canyon with no further shots back to Mount Hood.
