Great hike

Hiked 13.8 miles starting at the timberline lodge trail head. Some very easy trails all the way up to difficult. Climbing the face of the mt on off-season was fun

Be aware that they do not take American Express. Buffet lunch only had two choices of meat (beef or pork) as main courses. Salad was ok & good choice of desserts. I ordered a Sauvignon Blanc wine at $7.50 and was told they didn't stock that any more but had another, which I ordered. It wasn't until the bill arrived... More

We took a day trip out of Portland to visit Mt Hood and eat lunch at the Timberline Lodge. Because of traffic, we were delayed and ended up getting there after the main dining room closes at 2pm. We ate upstairs at the bar area. The food was very good but it took about an hour to get it. The... More

This was the location for a wedding I recently attended. We all met here and took shuttles up to Silcox Hut for the ceremony. Unbelievable views of Mt Hood and surrounding areas. Had breakfast here too and it was great! Skiing in August in 80 degree temps!!! Met people from Sweden who came for the snowboarding. Wild!

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.
