We were lucky enough to have the whole National forest to ourselves. I couldn't believe there weren't more people out enjoying this beautiful scenery! So many trails to stop & hike, rivers to see, waterfalls galore. Make sure to stop at the Wildwood Recreation Site. There is a glass wall that lets you look into the ecosystem of the stream.

Wilderness hiking, restaurants, resorts, day trips, winter skiing, golf, fishing...it's all here with breathtaking views, vistas. Family friendly, yet lots of places for a couple on an intimate getaway! Corporate retreats available.

Beautiful area. Drive up to Timberline Lodge is very nice. Had a fabulous lunch at the lodge, looking at the mountain. Four folks, varied food, all delicious and exceeded expectations. The chair lift was a fun thing to do in late May as skiers were still on the mountain and one could just do the round trip or walk or... More

I love Mt Hood meadows for the different terrain parks, the back country snowboarding, and because the lift line seems to always be moving quickly. Tickets can be a bit pricey, but it's because the resort has new accommodations and good lifts.

We walked the trail around the edge of Lake Trillium and took photos. It was beautiful, the water is a bit cold but it was full of families swimming, boating and fishing. It would be a really great place to camp, the fee to park was $5 but I think it was worth it.

So many beautiful spots to explore. We drove to Lost Lake and did the hike around the lake. 3.3 miles. Beautiful. Also drove to Timothy Lake, and spent one afternoon sitting out back at Timberline enjoying the sun above the clouds.

I've been appreciating the Mt. Hood National Forest since I was a child (and I'm an old guy!) It is impossible for comprehend the options or to adequately describe the delights. Amazing hiking trails... too many to count. Fishing streams galore, Nature walks and wildlife viewing everywhere. Good access to roads that will take you to very remote and rustic... More

Words or pictures can not describe the beauty of this nation forest. My wife, daughter and I went on many hikes through the tall pines, rushing rivers and many waterfalls. This is the place the outdoors people dream of!
