Mt. Hood sits like a beacon on our horizon. We are fortunate to have a mountain for more than just a pretty photo, Mt. Hood is our playground. Spend a moment, a day or a week exploring and relaxing upon the slopes of Oregon's largest mountain where you'll find breathtaking views, rushing rivers, delicious seasonal foods and accommodating lodging.
Mt. Hood represents freedom, a natural wonderland of majestic trees and rich forests nestled amongst pristine lakes and rivers. Seek out that alpine scene: a babbling stream next to a log cabin warmed by a fire with the eagles soaring and the squirrels gathering nuts. Now imagine yourself there. Step inside after a long, invigorating hike up virgin land where a waterfall cascades its waters, cold from the mountain air. There is no noise from the city, no traffic to frustrate you; just the oneness with the organic world around you. Time upon the mountain slows down and people can reset their balance. Magical wonders happen in nature.
Either as a traveler or wanderer on the mountain, take time to visit the hundreds of amazing restaurants that utilize the bounty of the land around them from morels to salmon, huckleberries to elk. These talented chefs are awaiting to serve you. Whether a campfire marshmallow or a fine dining experience, everything tastes better on the mountain.
Now that the mountain is building her snowy blanket, catch some fresh powder! Skiers, sledders, snowboarders, snowshoers and snowman builders: your paradise awaits.
This is our backyard, your destination for fresh air, fun and memories. Time to start making new ones. See you soon in the Mt. Hood Forest
