Knebal Springs Loop

Picture this:  it’s a beautiful sunny day, and you’re riding a nice loop trail with splendid mountain views, meadows full of wild flowers, and no crowds.  Where are you?  It’s the Knebal Springs Loop Trail on the east side of Mt. Hood.Knebal Springs Loop

The 9.5-mile Knebal (pronounced ka-NEE-bul) Springs Loop offers a lot of variety:  it runs through forest so dense that sunlight can barely penetrate, through sun-dappled forest, through small meadows with seasonal wildflowers, and through clear-cut areas with eye-popping views of Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helens, and Mt. Rainier.Knebal Springs Loop

The trail starts at Knebal Springs Campground, a trailhead and multi-user campground that has corrals in only three sites but permits horses in all of the sites.  The campground and its neighboring trails are shared with mountain bike riders, but the trails have long lines of sight so you can see the bicyclists coming, and the elevation changes are gradual so they don’t ride very fast.Knebal Springs Loop
