Great place to hang out waiting for hikers

The grand old lodge has plenty of scenery and history to explore while others take one of the many summer hikes. Lots of outdoor seating with amazing views.

This is a beautiful old lodge with great views of Mt Hood. We visited in August and had fun watching the skiers. The wildflowers were very pretty but the hiking was so so as the area was largely grey silt with little snow left. The staff at the outdoor parking desk (local skiers) were very helpful with recommendations of scenic... More

My history here goes way way back over 55 years, as a child, I was privileged enough to start my skiing career here at the age of 5. I learned the history of the lodge from my father who worked for the forest service here, and was the kid under the table in the blue ox bar when I was... More

We had finished a hike at Trillium lake and were hoping my son would take a nap in the car - so we drive up the road to Timberline Lodge. The sky was clear and the views were incredible. We had a great time. Can't wait to come back again and either stay, eat or snowboard on the slopes.

Stayed in a "chalet" room with 4 bunk beds! My husband and I and two kids. What fun. Slept with the windows open (once the lights were out) and it was cool and comfortable. Shared bathrooms means there are two bathrooms in the hallway right outside the door. Was quite private enough. Such a great place.

Our friends in Texas urged us to visit Timberline Lodge and we are glad that we listened to them.This lodge was built by the WPA and is so beautifully constructed, adorned,preserved, and maintained. If you have the opportunity to follow along with a forest service docent, you will learn so much about the history of this treasure. Be sure to... More

Highly recommend a stop here, peaceful, historic with a lot to do. The hiking is right outside your door, no additional cost needed. If you are a skier or a ski fan this is a year around destination

It was a beautiful drive from Gresham/Portland to Timberline, about 1 hour drive. As we approach the parking, get such a majestic view of Mt. Hood. We took our chance of first checking in the regular parking lots and were lucky to get a spot there. Changed into our snow gear and then went to the Magic Mile ticket counter.... More

Being from Hawaii, we don't see much snow. So happened the day we went up to Timberline, it was rainy, foggy and lots of it. It was so beautiful. We were in awe when the clouds moved away and we could see the mountain top.
