I can imagine on a beautiful day how nice this is, since the drive up was enchanting as we drove through the forest in rain and fog. Why bother going all the way to the lodge under those conditions? Well, we were visiting Oregon for...More

The mount hood drive is very beautiful! The small towns on the way have anything you may need. The highway is in good condition. You just want to drive forever.

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.

I agree about calling ahead. I noticed that the roads are nicely paved. Just be careful, there are many hairpin curves.
