Even if not staying at the Lodge you must stop and look area the lodge. Ranger talks are available also a movie to explain how the lodge was made. It's so beautiful!! Easy access to hike around Mt Hood. You could easily spend the whole day there. A must is Magic Mile!!! Awesome!!!!!

We spent the whole day here. First we took the ski lift, which is slightly pricey($15 round trip) but worth it, views at the top are incredible, plus its fun to watch the skiiers and snowboarders in August. Then we had the lunch buffet in the lodge, which was worth every penny. To walk off our lunch, we walked a... More

Beautiful pistes through the forest, keep away from the windswept areas. Possibly to ski trees but hidden ridges in the snow mean you have to be wary. Stay at Government camp in an apartment for families or splurge and stay on snow in the Lodge, a 1930s New Deal wooden wonder.

Take the Magic Mile Sky Ride up - around $15. The lodge offers interior tours also. Definitely worth the drive up Mt. Hood. Active skiing going on even in August. Delightful afternoon and beautiful views.

This is an easy drive during the summer to go visit the Lodge on Mount Hood. It has a spectacular old lodge and the hiking is great. You can ski/snowboard there all year, too. But be sure to go for the brunch which is nicely priced and had delicious selections!

Beautiful spot to look at Mt Hood. The chairs behind the lodge, if you look close you can see the summer skiers up on the mountain. Only downside is the abundance of people and the full parking lot.

The lodge is really cool but the dining is very costly. It is located at the top of Mt. Hood where all the skiers go. We were here on the 1st of June and snow was still laying nearby. I am not impressed with Mt. Hood once you get nearer to it. Great pics from afar.

Great road going up to Mt Hood. Busy with summer ski camps. Inside main lounge in lodge is beautiful with high ceilings and wall high fireplace. Outside chairs great place to sit and look up and try and spot skiers way up on Hood. I would recommend getting a drink or coffee and doing this for a half hour when... More

This is a 'must visit' if you are into historic lodges. It has a small museum and short film that explains the development in the mid -1930's of the lodge. Local workmen and women constructed from local timber and supplies: the lodge, its furniture, art for about 90 cents an hour under a Depression era public works program. The murals,... More
