The Best 7 Cabins for Mt Hood Hiking Vacations
Posted by Betsy LaBarge | Saturday, June 19, 2021


Summer is our favorite time to hit the trails and go for a hike in the Mt Hood National Forest with long, warm and sunny days. Start your hike early and you will still have time to enjoy other activities like biking, paddling and golfing. Or take a refreshing dip in one of our mountain lakes. Getting a late start? No worries, the days are long, allowing for an afternoon hike, too.

Whether you like a casual stroll along a quiet path or you are looking for a multi-mile cardio workout, there are hundreds of miles of trails in the Mt Hood area for you to discover. And there is no need to hop in your car and make the long drive back to the city after a day of exploring in the woods. Instead, head back to your Mt Hood cabin just minutes away and enjoy a refreshing beverage and snacks, cook up a grilled dinner on the BBQ and kick back and relax with a soak in the hot tub.

Most of our vacation rentals are pet-friendly, so bring your dog along on your Mt Hood vacation and take him hiking with you.

Here our some of our favorite Mt Hood Vacation Rentals for hiking vacations.
