From Adobe Canyon Road  Sucess!

The scenic approach more than makes up for the lack of views on top- especially if one takes the side trip to Gunsight Rock.

Via Goodspeed  Sucess!

Sonoma Mountain HP in the AM and Hood Mountain in the PM - each roughly 7 miles, 2000 feet of gain and 3 hours. Good day! Best views are from Gunsight Rock, which is a 5 minute side trip from the the Goodspeed trail. Trip report is HERE

Goodspeed Trail  Sucess!

Hiked Hood Mtn and Gunsight Rock after hitting Bald and Red Mtns earlier in the morning. Disappointing view from the summit... Bald Mtn was significantly better.

Johnson Ridge  Sucess!

With the vast majority of the route under a canopy of vegetation, popping out at the top took me by surprise. I enjoyed the monument that referenced some of the history of the mountain and the views to be gained from standing on the tiny pinnacle behind the monument.

Climbed this on a beautiful early autumn day. Really a spectacular trail. I summited, then backtracked to Gunsight Rock for a late lunch.

No views from the top  Sucess!

Should have followed Marmaduke's advice to go to Gunsight Rock.

A lot of times!

This is my main stay conditioning hike. Have done it at a minimum 30 times last year alone. A favorite is to start on the Goodspeed train, go up and over to the Pythian trailhead then back. Done with a heavy pack and I was set for Denali and Aconcagua. GPS here:http://connect.garmin.com/activity/59424558

Re: Sunny day

If you take the Goodspeed trail, next time don't take a right to the summit. Go to the left and you come out at Gunsight Rock, there are great views from there. If your coming from Hood Mt. Regional Park, once at the summit, decend the trail to the SW. You'll come to a trail (Goodspeed) to the left, stay straight to Gunsite Rock. From the summit down to Gunsight it is about an 1/8 to a 1/4 mile walk.
