Located twenty miles east of the city of Portland, Oregon and the northern Willamette River valley, the Mt. Hood National Forest extends south from the strikingly beautiful Columbia River Gorge across more than sixty miles of forested mountains, lakes and streams to Olallie Scenic Area, a high lake basin under the slopes of Mt. Jefferson.

We planning on hiking the trial this coming Saturday, do you guys have a suggestions. It will be our first time hiking the trail

I did this hike about a week ago with my dog and he loved it! There was definitely a lot of snow and so we could only get so far without proper gear but it was still incredibly peaceful and gorgeous. I will definitely be coming back again!

Gorgeous!!!! Majestic!!!

Short and nice end at the lake.

This hike is amazing for snowshoeing! I look forward to do it again this year when winter comes around again.

Lots of snow on the trail which was a little slick but beyond amazing view of Hood!

Little crater lake is beautiful

The most fun way to go from Timberline lodge to Govt.Camp. Mellow snowboarding in winter or easy downhill hike in summer.

A bit snowy but beautiful run! I clocked 8.2 miles but ran around the lake. Well worth it! In just a few weeks I bet the fall colors will be in full swing!

Nice hike but gets really crowded to Mirror Lake. Take the extra hike to Tom Dick and Harry. Less crowded and worth the climb to get the views.

Loved this trail! There was quite a bit of snow near the waterfall. It made the hike even better. Perfect for a mid-morning hike up for lunch.
