Hikes starting here

Driving Directions

Drive east on Highway 26.

From the last traffic light on the east end of Sandy, it’s 28.5 miles on Highway 26 through Government Camp to make a left turn for Timberline Lodge.

The road winds up for 5.5 miles to the parking area below the lodge (When exiting drive downhill on the one-way section of the road from the southwest corner of the parking area).

  • Timberline Lodge is a venerable Depression-era masterpiece on the south slope of Mount Hood. There is a maze of trails surrounding Timberline Lodge, all connecting to the Timberline Trail (no. 600), which is also the Pacific Crest Trail (no. 2000) along this portion.
  • A sno-park permit is required to park in winter.
