So many beautiful trails, of all levels to choose from. Just ask at the Zig Zag Ranger station for maps and suggestions. The rangers are very helpful

The colors, smells and views make this one of America's most wonderful national forests. Moss, ferns and lichen create a lush green accent for the trees and undergrowth. Many adventures and activities are to be had in this, one of the premier outdoor locations available.

Mount Hood National Forest is close to our home in Vancouver, Wa. We can take a two hour drive and the grand kids can be snowboarding or hiking for the day.

This is a review of a specific campground within the MHNF. I celebrated my birthday this year at this campground and I found it to be a huge disappointment. 1) The campground is overrun with bees. My nephew accidentally got too close to a hive and got stung 8 times. The rest of the trip they swarmed his site. My... More
