Mount Jefferson towers in the middle of Oregon at 10,497 feet standing out among other mountains. The snow endures the summer on the peak of this high altitude mountain. From the air, this is a spectacular visit.

The Pacific Crest Trail between Breitenbush lake and Mt Jefferson Park is absolutely spectacular with views of mount Hood in the north and Mt Jefferson in the south. The access is through a forestry road that starts just north of a major power line and at 1 mile there is a gate and after that the road deteriorates quickly and... More

I enjoyed seeing Mount Jefferson. It is a stratovolcano. It is also the 2nd highest peak in Oregon at an altitude of 10,495 feet and is in the Cascades Range.

Hiking at the base of Mt. Jefferson is magnificent. Enjoy the widerness and commune with Mother Nature. Jefferson Park at the base provides hiking and is laid out with beautiful tarns with crystal clear water. You will never forget hiking in this area.

When I was at Timberline Lodge I had a beautiful view of it from my room. It was interesting to see the way the clouds changed around the mountain, and see the alpenglow after sunset!
