Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I can't even believe how good the day was and how beautiful the lighting was. We started at around 3.45 PM and it took us 1 hour 10 mins to go to the top. The elevation gain is pretty steady, although its 1200ft so you need to be an average hiker to tackle this one. Its almost a 5 mile round trip, a hiking pole really helps manage the elevation gain towards the end of the hike. No views while hiking as you are just hiking up surrounded by beautiful pine trees, at the end you are treated to a beautiful view of Mount hood. I would highly recommend this hike to anyone who is going to this area. Its a must do activity.

My husband and I drove through Mount Hood National Forest. It's a beautiful, serene area to drive through. If you are ever in Oregon, the drive here is definitely recommended.

the lodge built many years ago is still very nice and the hiking is phenominal. Its a steep haul from the parking lot to the lodge. Being from the east coast its amazing to see a real snow capped mountain in the summer time.

Trillium lake is the perfect spot to camp with the family. You can sit by the lake and see the peak of Mt Hood. Gorgeous Forst spot.

My girlfriend and I went to Mt. Hood National Forest and camped for two nights near Timothy Lake. Fantastic views of Mt. Hood whole camping alongside a lovely lake. Campground was clean and had bathrooms. Great, relaxing time! Also, got to drive around Mt. Hood which is spectacular!

Such a beautiful sight to see over a large section of Oregon. I'd had this on my bucket list for awhile. Unfortunately, it was pouring rain the last day of my trip so I had a somewhat limited visit here. Will go back!

This National Forest is awe inspiring. In any season just an hour from Portland and you can't beat the drive. Make sure you take time along the way and pull off the road to take in the beauty. We were not "prepared" to hike but if the day is beautiful I can see how this would be a wonderful place to hike.
