    Majestic view. You don't get to see the mountain easily since the top can be quickly covered by clouds at any time. Check the weather before you go and you should be able to admire the beautifully rugged mountain in a distance.

    Excellet hotel. Would definitely stay again.
    This is a perfect place to stay for the Mt. Hood area. The hotel was fairly new so had all the current amenities. This was one of our favorite hotels on a 20 day road trip. The setting is awesome. They had a hot breakfast with lots of options. The room was clean and welcoming and had all the standard amenities. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Cold, windy, bright, beautiful
    May 6, 2024. 32° blowing snow bright and very cold. They just got 16 inches of snow in the past 24 hours and another 2 inches while we were there. We drove a very small car and it was fine until you got into the parking lot, which was not plowed and full of snow, snow and slush, but I love this mountain and the lodge. Doesn’t get any better than this!

    Timberline Lodge (Mt Hood) - beautiful views, good food, and warm fireplaces.
    Timberline Lodge at Mt. Hood is a wonderful historic lodge with many dining options, fabulous fireplaces, impressive craftsmanship, and stunning views in many directions. I did not stay overnight, so cannot comment on the rooms. During my May 2024 day excursion, there were many snowboarders having fun. This granny travels solo (ADA), so the Mt. Hood Shuttle Express was a terrific and economical option to get to Timberline Lodge (Mt. Hood) from Sandy, OR. As of May 2024, one-way was $2, or all-day pass for $5 (cash only, no digital pmt). Took about one hour each way. Their online schedule may differ slightly during heavy snow or high winds.

This is a gorgeous full day trip to experience all there is to see. I wished I had more time to explore. We started at noon on a beautiful fall day in October and ran out of light around 6:00 PM.

We started at the Portland airport and drove east along I-84 and the Columbia River. At Hood River, we hung a right and went south down Hwy 35. Where it intersected with Hwy 26; we hung another right and headed west back to Portland. The whole drive is 140 miles or 2 hrs and 45 minutes with no stops. Most of the time you cannot see Mt. Hood. It's either hidden from view by the trees and mountain ridges or there are clouds. Seeing Mt. Hood is cool, but it's not the only reason to do this circle.

The I-84 portion of the trip north of Mt. Hood is the Columbia Gorge. It's simply beautiful. Wahkeena and Multnomah Falls were accessible with no real hike. Plan to spend the morning along this section.

Lunch was at Hood River where you turn south. There were not a ton of options, but the river front area and brewery were perfect for us.

Hwy 35 along the eastern side of Mt. Hood is the Fruit Loop. I did not know it was there until we started seeing apple, pear and other fruit orchards. Dozens and dozens of road stands, markets and restaurants sell fresh fruit. The whole stretch is fun and beautiful. Find a spot that does cider tasting flights.

Along the southern side of the mountain, look for Government Camp and roads up into the mountain. This is the portion we had to skip due to time limit. Had we started earlier in the day we could have gone up the mountain to see the snow and views. In Government camp, there were some breweries to try out.

I highly recommend this drive!

This mountain is breathtakingly beautiful. You must visit to experience the beauty for yourself. We visited in July, 2021, and the weather was perfectly clear, and there was a lot of snow on the mountain. Being a photography nut, I took a ton of pretty pictures

We were going to go up to Timberline Lodge, but it was snowing hard - on May 2nd! So we kept on going over the pass. On the way back we could see this beautiful mountain from a distance. It is truly spectacular from down on the Columbia River near Hood River.

My birth place and such a beautiful drive any time of the year with lots of scenery, places to stop and taste the wonderful fruit and goodies along the way. Fruit Loop is a joy to go on. All the way from Hood River to Odell, to Parkdale, Dee and back to Hood River and seeing the majestic beauty of The Hood just about wherever you drive. Takes my breath away every time I see it.

Visiting Mt. Hood is a must do if you travel through Oregon. There are so many activities and places to visit. Hiking, skiing, biking, and exploring the quaint towns is always available any time of the year! Just a short drive and you can be on the Columbia River having fun with water sports or just relaxing at the beach.

Was here 40 years ago, it was then and I believe still is today, the premiere single Mountain in America. Skiers still on the slopes in June. Go to Trillium Lake for a great view of the Mountain.

Awesome scenic drive! We drove from Madras up 26 through the Warm Springs Reservation straight toward Mount Hood and then turned off on 35 north toward Hood River, going right past Mount Hood. This was part of our "volcano" tour that started at Lassen and ended at Rainier. Views of Mount Hood on this drive are amazing. We also saw Mount Jefferson (south) and Mount Adams (north) on this drive. Sweet!
