  • Address: Mt Hood, USA
Located about 50 miles (81 kilometers) outside of Portland, Mt. Hood sits majestically at 11,249 feet (3,429 meters), making it the highest mountain in Oregon. As it is a dormant volcano you’ll constantly see steam rising from its fumaroles, adding to the serenity of the scene.

Mt. Hood offers a range of experiences, like hiking, fishing, camping and skiing. Of Mt. Hood’s five ski lodges, the most famous is the Timberline Lodge, a designated National Historic Landmark that’s home to the only year-round ski season in North America. Additionally, there are over 1,200 miles (1,931 kilometers) of hiking trails in the Mt. Hood National Forest, with options from beginner to expert and chances to see waterfalls, lakes, woodland and wildlife.

For true adventure-seekers, Mt. Hood is the second-most climbed mountain in the world with over 10,000 climbers each year, and mixes thrills with natural beauty. Note that even if you do the “easiest” climb from Timberline Lodge it is still very technical, and crampons, ice axes, ropes and climbing gear are necessary. April through mid-June are generally regarded as the safest times to make the ascent as there is less chance of avalanche or rockfall. Once at the top, you’ll be able to enjoy the eleven glaciers at its peak as well as views of the surrounding mountains, valleys and cities. Typically, the roundtrip climb will take you about eight to 10 hours.
