“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 12 December 2011

Can't wait to go back! We only had a short stay here. You need at least 3-4 days to see all of its beauty.

“Beautiful scenery”
Reviewed 13 September 2011

Still a beautiful place to visit. We had lunch at the lodge, and it was fine for a "tourist spot". Take advantage of the scenic view turnouts....makes it much easier & safer to enjoy the gorgeous land.
If you're a senior (over 62) you can get a $10.00 lifetime pass to all of the National Parks. Just be sure to hang on to it since they don't keep any record of it, and if you lose it, you'll have to buy another one. (happened to us!)

Reviewed 24 October 2007

It was a perfect place for climbers and families. The view is beautiful and a lot of fun things to do. There are local vineyard too. I also love the local marionberry ice cream.

“Hike To Mirroe Lake”
Reviewed 23 August 2007

We hiked up to Mirror Lake (Vitoria was in a baby back pack). Quite a hike but well worth it. There are several switchbacks leading up to a beautiful lake that reflects Mt. Hood in it’s waters.
