If you are in this area make sure to drive to an area where you can get a breathtaking view of this snow capped beauty! It is a lovely drive to get back up into this area with lots of wineries and fun places along the way.

What a treat to finally drive to Mt. Hood from Hood River! A beautiful, easy drive...passing vineyards, orchards and stunning views along the way. A stop at Trillium Lake is wondrous! Picnic tables are nestled in the woods. Timberline Lodge is a national treasure. Tours are given by very informed docents three times a day. Breakfast and lunch buffets are... More

The drive to the mountain was very scenic. If you look closely you can see the path of the volcanic destruction in the forest. Once at the top, they give little talks which were very interesting. The movie was circa 1970 I think but still very interesting. The stories posted very moving. Definitely a must see for nature lovers.

I've been ON the mountain in the past and skied at the lodge there. It was an incredible trip. This time we just gazed from afar. The view is amazing. Even from downtown Portland.

The scenery around Mt. Hood makes it a trip worth experiencing for young and old alike. There are hikes and waterfalls enough to fulfill the wishes of the most ardent outdoors family.

Mount Hood looks over the entire area with a beautiful snow capped peak. Near the summit is the Timberline lodge. A great place to stay or pop in for a drink or meal. Traveling up the mountain from I85 is about 45 - 60 minutes. A stop at Tritium Lake is well worth the few minutes extra while on the... More

We stayed for a few days and it was so lovely we wished we had more time to explore. You can see snow-capped Mount Hood on one side and Mount Baker in Washington State on the other. Very scenic and beautiful.
