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.

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!

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.
