Yocum Ridge Falls

Stemming from a no-name glacier cascades three no-name waterfalls that run thru the summer on the west side of Mt. Hood. The Yocum Ridge Falls as they are know are located above the Muddy Fork basin making it a 6+ mile round-trip loop from Bald Mountain with some easy trail walking mixed with moderate bolder/riverbed/bushwhacking.
