The view from Parkdale after taking the train up there was stunning on this clear day in summer. You can really see the features of the mountain.

We were originally just going to Trillium Lake to catch the view of Mount Hood but about 5 miles from the mountain there was a visitor centre that we stopped at and the young lady recommended taking the drive up the mountain to the lodge. I am glad we took her recommendation otherwise we would have missed an absolutely stunning... More

We drove up to Mount Hood and it was cloudy and we couldn't see the top. Within a short time, it cleared up and we could see the peak. The children I was with had a great time playing in the year round snow!! I'd love to go back and stay at the lodge!!

Worth a visit to Mt. Hood and the surrounding area. Hiking on Mt. Hood requires footwear and gear for snow. There are many hikes to choose from including one around Trillium lake that is flat, partially paved and beautiful. We also tried a short hike to Zig Zag falls that was good with children.

The snow capped Mt Hood kept calling our name. We drove closer and closer and finally landed at Timberline Lodge where we went two nights and became intimate with Mt Hood in all of it's splendor. Just simply magnificent.

So...how can you NOT like and NOT love a mountain? Seriously beautiful, majestic and gorgeous. We did some driving, we did some hiking and thoroughly enjoyed our day on the mountain.

As you drive East along I-84 from Portland you can view Mt Hood from almost anyplace along the interstate until you make the turnoff to visit the mountain. Can't miss it in fact. It rises above and dominates the landscape. You can drive up to the Timberline Lodge which sits near the top of the mountain. This lodge was used... More
