The Fall months in Mt. Hood Territory are the perfect time to discover the autumn foliage in the forests.
No matter what your skill level is there is a trail suited for you in Mt. Hood Territory and the trees show off their autumn colors in a brilliant way. Close to town is the Mt. Talbert Nature Park with towering trees, diverse wildlife, and it's a stone's throw away from great (and tax-free) shopping. Mt. Hood Outfitters guides numerous hikes in the Mt. Hood National Forest and is a great option to get you started safely if you are a novice. The Mirror Lake 2-hour trail hike displays vine maple and huckleberry and is referred to by the locals as a "Fall Color Extravaganza." A more advanced option is the 4-hour hike from Barlow Pass Road to Timberline Lodge & Ski Area along the Pacific Crest Trail. It's definitely worth the trek for its unmatched views.
