Beautiful views in so many ways - mountains, trees, rivers, and lakes! Would love to spend more time here enjoying all the hiking options too!
So many things to do! We did alot of off trail hiking to do wild mushroom hunting. Chanterell were everywhere! Great fishing at Trillium and Clear Lakes. Lots of trails and campgrounds.

The focus of this review is the Ranger Station near Parkdale on Route 35. We stopped there on our way to Mt Hood on our last day in the Portland area. The view of Mt Hood looked iffy from the road so we asked the Rangers for their opinion. They turned on the sky cam and lo and behold clear... More
