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.

Easy afternoon drive from Portland with the gorgeous 7 waterfalls along the way. The only downside is the drive home in the pitch dark but the road back to Portland is well light so it's worth it. ahhhhh

We had an amazing time hiking up to McNeil Point. The views are amazing, and the varying terrain is so cool. It was a very "wild/real" hike - not a ton of guide posts - which made it extra fun! So worth it / rewarding to get to the top and see the VIEWS!

We visited this place on a Sunday evening on August 31st 2014. It was not on our list to cover as everyone we spoke had told us it far from Portland. It was a last minute change to go and we started around 4:00 PM PST. It was an amazing drive from Columbia Gorge to mount hood. On our way... More

This was one of our favorite sights in Oregon. We drove from Portland on a clear day and pulled over to take pictures along the way--then got to Timberline and bought lift tickets to the top where there was still a lot of snow in early July! My Florida teens had a blast playing in the snow and watching the... More

This mountain is just breath taking. We drove up to the Lodge and then walked up to the snow (in August). There were people skiing and snow boarding! It is an easy path....but a pretty good climb. Well worth the effort. The Lodge itself has a really interesting history that is worthy of stepping inside and seeing. It is amazing... More

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
