- The trail to Elk Meadows passes by the junction to Umbrella Falls. It appears new trail signs were installed in 2010.
- The first major creek the Elk Meadows Trail crosses is Clark Creek. This is an easy crossing with this nice log crossing.
- The second major creek crossing on the Elk Meadows Trail is Newton Creek. As you can see, this crossing has to be replaced annually. Some years it is good and other years it is just some logs.
- Elk Meadows has fine views of Mt. Hood. The meadow is marshy in places.
- The shelter at Elk Meadows is pretty run down. The roof appears to be mostly waterproof.
- Another view of Elk Meadows showing Mt. Hood. The trail goes around the perimiter of the meadow. The meadow around the shelter is less marshy.
- Jasmine returns from a small stream flowing through Elk Meadows near the shelter. It looks like this part of the meadow is wet in spring and mostly dries out in the summer.
- A small spring in the forest near the junction of the Elk Meadows Perimeter trail and the Knarl Ridge access trail provides a lush growing area for marsh plants.
- Jasmine taking a break at the junction of the Knarl Ridge Trail and the Timberline Trail. This section of the Timberline Trail drops down into the woods for the crossing of Newton Creek.
- Jasmine walking on the Timberline Trail west of the junction of the Knarl Ridge Trail and the Timberline Trail.
- Magenta Paintbrush and Lupines put on a summer show along the Timberline Trail just above the timberline. The dry volcanic soil makes it difficult for most plants to survive.
- Mt. Adams towers in the distance from the Timberline Trail. The Knarl Ridge fire has burned the trees in the foreground. The Gnarl Ridge Fire was started by lightning on Thursday night, August 7, 2008 and quickly spread. The fire burned until put out by w
- Mt. Hood as seen from Lamberson Butte. This is a great place to take a break and enjoy majestic views.
- A rugged rock formation above Newton Creek viewed from Lamberson Butte. The rocks look like they could fall into Newton Canyon at any time.
- The east side of Mt. Hood and the Newton-Clark Glacier below the peak. You can see the east side of Mt. Hood is much more rugged than the west side.
