Mt Hood Cultural Center & Museum
Explore the history of Government Camp, from early skis to the background of Henry Steiner cabins. This is definitely a must-see museum if you enjoy the history of American settlers in the Cascade range.
Walk up to the museum and check out not only the history of this area, but the history of skiing. Check out all the levels of the place and they also have a nice gift shop.
The Mt. Hood Cultural Center and Museum is housed in a beautiful structure in the heart of Government Camp. Located along the ruts of the historic Barlow Road, the building site offers a wonderful view of Mount Hood. The museum consists of six galleries plus a rentable meeting/multipurpose room.
“Excellent trail system about 8 miles from cabin down Barlow Trail Road. To access the main trailhead, you have to pedal about 3 miles up a paved logging road climbing approximately 2,000'. If you are a beginner or novice, there is a loop around the parking lot and an entry point to Lower Hide and Seek about 1.5 miles up the logging road. Laura's Loop about .5 mile up is nice for beginners, and at .75 TNT/Little Monkey has slopestyle jumps for those wanting to air it out. For more advanced riders there are few options at the top, including my favorite: Communication Breakdown (flow)-Quid Pro Flow (flow)-338(XC)-Two Turntables (fast and tight), Lower Hide and Seek (flow).”
“I come here for the log cabin vibes and the bloody mary. The food is simple but tasty and they have big ol’ cinnamon rolls.”
