My wife and I are at an age that we don't take many hikes of any significant distance. We do, though, enjoy His creation. Driving the highway from the southeast, there were multiple great views of the gorgeous mountain. We made several photo stops, and short walks.

We had a small group of hikers explore trail around the Timberline Lodge area. The Zig Zag Canyon trail runs along the PCT and has several nice views and good scenery in general.

I am fortunate to live on the foothills of Mt. Hood. My husband and I have done some much out here and there are so much for activities we still would love to do! Kayaking, fishing, camping, mountain biking, hiking, snowshoeing, and just going on a drive! So Much to do!! Come on up and see for yourself!

Worth the drive to visit Timberline Lodge at 11,000+ feet, and drive around to Government Camp on west side of the mountain. Breath-taking views of mountain ranges from Timberline Lodge.

The drive here first of all, was beautiful. When you arrive at the lodge and look around it is stunning (this is also where the Shining was filmed - pretty cool). We took the chairlift to the middle part of the volcano and one other person and myself continues to walk up - the view was breathtaking. If you look... More

You can spend many hours and days exploring the Mount Hood area. From the City of Hood River with incredible water sports on the Columbia River, visiting orchards, multiple local breweries and brewpubs, hiking and mountain biking trails galore in summer, four ski resorts in winter. You must visit Timberline Lodge, stay overnight if you can, have a nice meal,... More

We spent the 4th of July camping at Toll Bridge campgrounds. Beautiful well maintained campgrounds about 20 minutes from Hood River. They take reservations and were helpful with all my questions. There is a creek running thru that the kids spent hours in. The campsite has a few hiking paths attached and many hiking trails within a short drive. Great... More

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Mount Hood is unsurpassed in so many ways. It is not one natural masterpiece but hundreds of vistas and beautiful photo ops. Mount Hood has year round snow due to the glacier. Last I knew they close the skiing down for a couple months in September and October when the kids go back to school. Just as... More
