A fantastic view. At least a once in a life time visit should be done by as many people as possible. Scenery is spectacular.

I'm here for really quick trip and I decided to do the drive to the hood mountain, and I LOVED IT, most beautiful drive ever having the mountain as my view all the way and amazing trees on both sides . I highly recommend it.

We had seen the mountain for several days. We finally took a drive out to see it close up. We were not able to find a close location to see it. Unfortunately, the ranger station closed at 4pm and locked the restrooms, which was unfortunate....More

We really enjoyed our trip in the Mount Hood area. Great to see the glaciers still intact in August with skiers and snow boarders enjoying the sunshine. We took the mile high ride up to enjoy the view. The parking is crowded, but the lodge...More

Starting in Hood River we followed 35 and 26 around Mount Hood on our way to Portland. We took the time to visit Trillium Lake to get a mirror image. Also had a great view from Phelps Creek winery. Terrific wine there.

Great place for photo of Mt. Hood is right off of Highway 35 where the road crosses the White river. Large parking lot there but you have to walk a ways to get most of the rocky shore out of the picture.

We were told the Mt. Hood loop was a beautiful drive. The first half from Mt Hood (the town) is beautiful. Your view of Mount Hood is spectacular as are the lavender fields and fruit stands. If I were doing it again, I would turn...More

Hey all Looking for help on what to see: 6 day trip flying into Portland renting a car flying out of Seattle. First time to Port, have been to Seattle's downtown, but nothing else. Originally had set for 3days in Mt. Hood/Portland area to explore downtown & some hiking around Mt. Hood/Columbia River Gorge exploring Then 3 days either around Port Angeles to see visit Olympic National Park sites, or using those same days and staying close to Rainer National Park to do some hiking/see Mt. Saint Helens. Ideally since we are for sure spending time in Portland Area & Mt. Hood bc we have never been to the area. I was thinking it would be great to get up to the Olympic site where there is different vegetation, beaches, etc. but after reading some comments, it seems that Rainer & Mt. Saint Helens are not to be missed. We could def hit either Rainer or Mt. SH for a 4hour stint on the day we drive up to Olympic area, but probably not both... My question is for people who have been to both, if you had to cut out something what would you cut out? Is 3days/3days too much at either? If so, should we try 2/2/2 or a 2/1/3 if you think all of the stops listed are obtainable. Thanks so much for your help.

I think you are cramming way too much into a very short period of time. Figure out what is most important to you and focus your time there.

We will be pulling a 30 foot travel trailer in July. I am concerned about the access to Hood River campground. Is it a hard pull up or very Steep down?

Where can I get the best views of Mt. Hood? Are there any day hikes that give a great view of it? I've never been to the area.

Many places actually, but I love the views from Parkdale, Oregon in April & May when the apple and pear trees blossom. Also, a trip to Timberline Lodge is fabulous, and right on the Mt.
