We love visiting here! You’ve got truly beautiful views in the winter months here when the ground is covered in snow and the lake is iced over. In the greener months, the hike is absolutely gorgeous. It’s mostly flat and is a few miles round trip, though there are multiple avenues to get to the…
Great for X-Country skiing in the winter or hiking and kayaking in the spring and summer!
Another great spot on Mt. Hood for paddle boarding, swimming, canoeing, and kayaking
One of the most beautiful views around! Be sure to visit on a clear day to enjoy the best mountain views. The two mile loop around the lake is sure to please!
“Such an easy hike and trail. But the end at the fall is almost out of a fairy book! We highly recommend setting aside a couple hours to picnic here! ”
“Best pizza in the area! You can order online and pick it up. Our favorite is the #1 Margarita.”
“Local craft beer and tavern style food. A bit of a drive from the chalet but on the way to/from Mt Hood. They have a patio, when weather allows. *Please check for restrictions on dining before going!*”
“Local pub. Decent fried chicken, pool table, and a digital juke box. Come for the beer stay for the slug races in August and see who gets crowned "slug queen." No salt allowed.”
“This snow sports area is closest to the chalet -- and the lowest elevation.. so the snow levels need to be solid to go. They host night skiing and "cosmic tubing" after dark. In the summer there are also a lot of fun & family friendly activities.”
