We just drove there to look around and we did not regret it. The view on the way to the mountain and from it are crazy beautiful.

We were able to make the trip to Mt. Hood from Hood River in the afternoon of our arrival into Hood River. The drive is beautiful and views of Mt. Hood are extraordinary. I was able to get some excellent photos. There's not much to do except the drive -- we didn't have time for hiking. But it was well... More

If your in to snow activities this is the place for you. Its also beautiful in the summer months. The lodge has a lot of history and if any one recalls the movie " The Shining" this was the lodge they used to shoot the movie. Great place to see and visit if your in the area.

We have visited the Mount Hood area a number of times. This time it was early September and the weather was crystal clear and warm. We enjoyed seeing Mount Hood from various perspectives from the Columbia River Gorge. The views of the mountain were awesome. With Mount Hood standing at 11,250 feet , it was also awesome to see it... More

We were fortunate to be here on a relatively clear day and the views and scenert were awesome. I wish we had more time to hike because there were a lot of trails and the fresh air would have been wonderful. I look forward to a return trip where we can do some hiking.

This is a great scenic area to drive and to hike. Several places to have a picnic lunch, or you can drive up to the historic lodge that was built in the early 1900's. Worth the trip!

The trails that we hiked were serene and pretty, however we had trouble with the accuracy of the trail maps. The "ranger" stationed at an information desk in the lodge had limited information and trail maps. It was obvious she had not been out on most of the trails. One of the trails was to lead us to a waterfall,... More
