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!

Tons of hiking trails. We only could not find Mirror Lake, maybe they should rename it Hidden Lake. The most challenging trail is Eagle Creek.

We loved our ride through the national forest on our way to Mt. Hood. The road is easily traveled and there are a lot of small shops and restuarants along the way.

Great hiking trails, from easy to difficult. Family friendly. Beautiful surroundings. We especially liked the Wildwood trails, and underwater viewing area.

Sure does make the trip worth it up here to the Wildwood recreation site in Mt Hood national Forest. I came here last Saturday with my nephew of 13 and he truly enjoyed what... More

But as we traveled into the forest from the east on 26 the trees got larger and... More
