We stopped for lunch and the view before going to Government Camp for the night. Beautiful old lodge has a lot of character (and is not run down). We sat overlooking the vista to the south and felt like we could see all the way to San Francisco. Even in July there were a fair number of snowboarders still on... More

Mount Hood and the surrounding mountains are beautiful. We had a nice scenic drive as we took Highway 26 out of Portland through the mountains and after visiting the Mount Hood Lodge we took Highway 35 down to the town of Hood River, the Columbia River Gorge and Interstate 84. The most impressive of the old historical lodges I have... More

We did a day trip from Hood River to Mount Hood/Timberline Lodge. It was a beautiful day for the drive. We drove up to the lodge and found plenty of parking. Even though it was over 90 degrees in Hood River it was a comfortable 75 degrees at the lodge. The lodge is an engineering wonder for a WPA project... More

This is the mountain you see in the photo views of Portland Oregon. My favorite place for hiking, camping, fishing, skiing, driving, playing and having a great outdoor adventure. So many places to enjoy!

You must drive to Mount Hood and eat or have drinks at Timberline Lodge. Ski or just enjoy waking around the lodge and having drinks or lunch.

Beautiful hike, with views of Mirror Lake, the valley below, and Mount Hood. I would say this hike is moderate to difficult. This is at timberline (hence the name), so you hike in the forest for part of the way, through meadows part of the way, and through barren terrain for part of the way. There are quite a few... More

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.
