Even so, the drive from Government Camp up to the ski resort is nostalgic for me. I remember it in the late 1940's and it still exudes the charm of the 'experienced' American ski resorts.

Mount Hood was gorgeous. We were able to take a picture from the other side by the park. We got out by the park and took a picture that looked similar to this.

When you arrive in the Seattle area you see this massive mountain in the distance, it looks huge but it is a lot bigger then it looks. In the dead of summer you can see the glaciers on it and the whole area is a nature lovers must see. I would recommend visiting this park when you are in the... More

Be sure to stop by Trillium lake for awesome views of Mount Hood. There is a short (mile or so?) loop that goes around the entire lake. However, one end of the lake is a perfect place to kick back with a cooler and some food. Well populated spot, but, not too crowded. Nice stop over if you have an... More

We drove to Mount Hood after visiting the Columbia River Gorge. It was a glorious day and the scenery both on the main road and the lesser traveled roads was well worth our time and effort. Would recommend spending at least an entire day there, to hike and take in the entire forest.

When we got back to the river area took Rt 30 to complete the circle. What a great way to spend a day. Views to the left n right, waterfalls, birds, hughs pine trees, and the timberline. The...

We visited Mt. Hood on a Saturday. After a beautiful drive from Portland to the Timberline Lodge, we rode the Magic Mile Chairlift to a higher point. Beautiful views of the surrounding areas and really neat to see people skiing and snowboarding in August. We had hoped to hike some trails later on but realized that we needed to have... More

Mt. Hood can be seen for miles around, not shrouded in mist or obscured by other topographical features. There are abundant trails for hiking, and local roads are dotted by fruit orchards (just the best berries, peaches, and apricots EVER) and wineries. Mt. Hood is magical and inviting. Try Mirror Lake!

Every year we enjoy the beauty of this mountain, the wild flowers and the GREAT hikes along the way. Definitely a place to see.
