Made the easy trip to Mount Hood from Portland. Easy 1.5 hour drive taking your time. Couple of tips.1) you can't drive to the top, the highest you can get by car is Timberland Lodge. 2) once you get to the lodge you can pay $15 per adult and take the ski lift to over 8000ft. Beautiful views, and sorta... More

This is a gorgeous area! I found out that the hotel there was shown in the Shining (the outside of it) The stream of water coming from the snow on the mountains was amazing to see. We are not skiers, but to go just to look around was worth it!

Spectacular! A must see in Oregon. The road getting up to top is a tough drive so be alert and observation of signs.

Sadly when we drove to 14k elevation on Mt. Hood it was covered in fog, however it was still breathtaking. I've personally never been up that high in a mountain and the air was so fresh. This is a beautiful mountain when you catch it on a great day. Overall, I would say it is definitely worth the drive to... More

It was our first time to the area. The drive from Portland along the Columbia River was awesome. We were lucky to have a clear day - Mt Hood stood out for many miles. We visited the Timberline Lodge - neat place. Wish we had more time to do some hiking. It was also too bad the lifts weren't working.... More

Add this to your bucket list! A spectacular day traveling from Hood River all the way around the mountain. If you follow 35, you can stop along the way and be sure to stop at the Mt. Hood Meadows ski resort & Timberline Lodge. Pix are still so amazing to look at from the base all the way up to... More

We were leaving Trillium Lake heading back to Portland when we noticed the sign for Timberline Lodge. We decided to check it out. The views of a snow-capped Mount Hood are gorgeous. We ended up looking around the resort and walked though the building where you can buy your lift tickets, but we didn't walk up to the Lodge. There... More

We drove up to the Timberline Lodge on Mt Hood, took the very interesting guided tour of the lodge and enjoyed the scenery on a perfectly clear day. The view was great, we could see Mt Jefferson and the Sisters to the south, still snow capped in July. There were a number of skiers and snow boarders taking advantage of... More

We went to Timberline Lodge as a family, which is an impressive building with a nice lunch buffet. There's a nice, easy hiking path up on the mountain near the ski run. We went in July, where people are still skiing but I personally wouldn't bother - there's just one slushy run that isn't worth it.
