Snowshoeing near Hood River

Post by amycfink » February 9th, 2019, 1:20 pm

Hello - Coming into town from Seattle in a couple weeks and looking for snowshoeing recommendations on the Hood River side of Mt. Hood. We'll be staying at an AirBnB about 3 miles towards Mt. Hood from Parkdale. We have a 6 & 8 year old so looking for flat, family friendly options.
Thank you in advance!

This site's Field Guide has quite a few options. If you click on area on the map (https://www.oregonhikers.org/field_guid ... Hood_Hikes) most of the hikes that start along SR-35 and SR-26 will do, as well as nearby hikes in the Gorge - hikes get more flat the more you go East on I-84. You'll need snow pass for Mt. Hood area. Everything is under deep, fresh snow right now, even in the Gorge (that may change by the time you get there).

I think locals go to Post Canyon a lot.
