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

This was one of the places on our list to visit when we went to Oregon. As we travelled along the road towards Mount Hood, we got some fabulous views of it. The views all around are quite breath taking and if you are fit enough, I am sure the trails around it would give you an even better perspective.... More

Take a ride up to the Lodge at Mount Hood -- it is beautiful and the ride up is filled with eye-popping scenery. The drive is not difficult but you are up very high.

Lots of hiking. When driving to trailheads, get crystal clear directions from rangers. Roads are not marked well and difficult to follow. Expect lots of gravel roads. There's beautiful streams and waterfalls, Timberline Lodge is worth the drive too.
