Tips from locals
On a clear day it is hard not to notice the glacier covered mountain of Mt. Hood on the horizon. Full of fun adventure with green wilderness, clean rivers and home to the historical monument Timberline Lodge. This is a perfect day trip one hour and half from the city.
Many great hikes, skiing year-round, and historic Timberline Lodge will make your day trip up the mountain well worth it!
In the wintertime and early spring there’s skiing/ snowboarding at Timberline, Government camp and Meadows. Or just drive up and visit the Historic Timberline lodge. Take a ride down the alpine slide in Government camp or take a hike around one of the many alpine lakes on Mt. Hood.
Just a 1-hour drive to beautiful hikes around lakes and mountain views, check out the hikes for Trillium Lake, Mirror Lake, or Tom, Dick & Harry Mountain.
