Timing is important if you don't like to be among 5 million others enjoying the views. We arrived before the sun was up, and enjoyed several trails all to ourselves. The parking lot was packed by the time we got back to our car though,...More

A tremendous drive to the top,and well worth it just to view the Timberline Lodge. The road up goes through a forest of the densest and tallest evergreen trees that I have ever seen. People ski all year up there. The lodge was built in...More

This mountain is so beautiful. You can see it for miles & there are places you can get close to it. You can also ski it in winter. If you visit Portland you need to take half a day to drive east & see it.

Drove up to Mount Hood in a stunning Ford Mustang. This place is great in winter but for those snowboarding lover, there is perpetual snow at the top. So, you could enjoy wearing t-shirt and shorts at the bottom of this mountain then get your...More

Who knew? I'm sure thousands but I didn't know much about Mt Hood except hearing the name a few times. The village of Government House is so perfect. Like out of a movie. Driving to the top was breathtaking. Being able to drive a route...More

A friend at home just reminded me I said I'm not a fan of mountains. Well, not any more! We had clear days providing spectacular views from everywhere. Just beautiful! Pictures from Panorama Point & Trillium Lake.

On a clear day, you can see the Cascades' volcanic peaks very clearly. As you approach Mount Hood, it is stunning to see it grow larger and larger. It is a beautiful peak and the area offers many hiking trails. The Timberline Lodge is also...More

The mount hood area is hundreds of miles of trails, many more miles of wilderness roads, mountaintop views, a glacier, outstanding food, and endless views. You can spend many days exploring the area, and drive for hours without seeing another car. Great place to experience,...More

If you want snow, that's iffy, it might snow at the beginning of December or in November. I doubt the fall will be frozen then.

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.
