Welcome to Wy'east Trailfest, Presented by Salomon

Wy'east Trailfest is a celebration of mountain trail running featuring Mt. Hood’s illustrious alpine terrain, with 50K, 28K & 14K courses that reach Oregon’s rooftop, plus a beautiful 8K (5 miler) and Kids Race to round out the weekend! Whether racing, volunteering or spectating, join us up high on Wy'east (the native ancestral name for Mt. Hood) at the Pacific NW’s wildest mountain trail race experience.

Mt. Hood Meadows

All weekend, we’ll celebrate together through the sport of trail running as honor the mountain and recognize each other’s accomplishments with awards, excellent food, craft beverages, and fun games and activities at Oregon’s premier ski area, Mt. Hood Meadows.

50K

The 50K is held on Saturday and offers a world class loop-style route, run twice on volcanic alpine ridgelines up high, and deep forests, wildflower meadows and waterfalls down low. This is a true mountain race, starting at Mt. Hood Meadows at 5400’ elevation, traveling as low at 4500’ and up to 8000’ high on the volcano. Elevation change involves 8,100' of gain, 8,100' of loss across a full spectrum of PNW terrain, from forested, smooth dirt singletrack to steep, technical, exposed and sometimes scrambly rocky trails. Spectacular views abound from start to finish!

28K

The 2024 Wy’east Trailfest 28K is a GOLDEN TRAIL NATIONAL SERIES race!

The 28K is set for Sunday of race weekend featuring a world class loop-style course on volcanic alpine ridgelines up the high country, and deep forests, wildflower meadows and waterfalls down low. This is a true mountain race, starting at Mt. Hood Meadows at 5400’ elevation, traveling as low at 4500’ and up to 8000’ high on the volcano, covering 17.3 miles. Elevation change involves 4,300' of gain and 4,300' of loss across a full spectrum of PNW terrain, from forested, smooth dirt singletrack to steep, technical, exposed and sometimes scrambly rocky trails. Spectacular views abound from start to finish!

14K Hill Climb

The 14K course is Saturday of race weekend. The course offers a world class loop-style route on volcanic alpine trails for a very challenging mountain race, starting at Mt. Hood Meadows at 5400’ elevation, climbing up to 8000’ on the volcano before descending back down for the finish. The course is as grueling as it is beautiful. Elevation change involves a whopping 2,700' of gain and 2,700' of loss in just 8.9 miles, crossing a full spectrum of PNW terrain, from forested, smooth dirt singletrack to steep, technical, exposed and sometimes scrambly, bouldery trails. Spectacular views abound from start to finish!

8K

The 8K is held on Saturday of race weekend and involves a classic trail loop course that travels along a stunning stretch of the Timberline Trail, offering panoramic views along much of the route. Approximately 850' of elevation gain over 5 miles and is 99% single track trail.
