We didn't have time to visit, but the views from the plane were incredible. Also, you can see the mountain well from various points in the city.

3 month cross country trip and Mt. Hood was one of our stops. We stayed at Lost Lake Campground which was a mistake. Wish we had stayed on the other side of the mountain where the ski village is.

Beautiful views with great hikes surrounding the whole area! The North side of the mountain offers plenty of wineries and breweries to visit.

The must see places for photos are Trillium Lake, just off Hwy 26 a mile east of the turn-off to Timberline Lodge, and Timberline Lodge itself. There are many other recreational areas, but I've never spent much time there

In the valley on our way to Mt. Hood, we passed orchards. On our climb up the gorge the uniform pines were dazzling to see them so perfectly spaced. There were a few pull offs and a distant view of Mt. Hood, so we took...More

Mount Hood is a beautiful site the way it suddenly appears from the road covered in snow. The surrounding forest and views are well worth the drive.

Mt. Hood is definitely worth the time it takes. It is visible from a lot of locations and has numerous beautiful photo ops.

We did a one-day driving trip to Mt. Hood from Hood River. It is a stunningly beautiful place, and our only regret was that it was a 'marginal' weather day. We had occasional glimpses of Mt. Hood (thru rain/mist and occasional snow) in all its...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.
