Mt. Hood National Forest encompasses slightly over 1 million acres of great scenery and landscapes, including eight wilderness areas totaling over 300,000 acres. The developed facilities are excellent and the views (including of Mt. Hood on clear days) are great.
The autumn leaves are stunning on this road. On a clear day the views of Mt. Hood won’t disappoint.
We took it from Rt 26 to Lost Lake so we could hike the Lost Lake Butte Trail.
The Trail has an elevation change of 1200-1300...More

We did not do any camping. We hiked a couple of trails on Mt. Hood. We got the access information from a couple of sources. We brought a map published by National Geographic that had very good trail locations. Another excellent resource is stop by the nearest Forest Service office while you are there. They have maps, current trail conditions, and suggestions. That is probably your best resource.
