Welcome to Mt. Hood Territory, Links-cast-cavore elite! We've taken the liberty of gathering some trip ideas that should be par for your course.
No matter what time of year you visit Mt. Hood Territory you can ignite your golf obsession on one of the many top-rated public golf courses in the region. Langdon Farms near Wilsonville was one of the first to invest in year-round dry conditions so they've set the standard for our four-season climate. If you fancy a par-3 course, head to Lake Oswego Municipal Golf Course & Driving Range for a round, lesson or just to practice your game. If courses with views are more your thing check out Stone Creek Golf Club in Oregon City or Mountain View Golf Club in Boring where the holes are designed with character and have epic views of Mt. Hood in sight while you crush the ball down the fairway.
For a full day's experience, head up the mountain to Welches and experience the grandness of the 27-hole course nestled in the woods at the base of Mt. Hood. The golf experience at Mt. Hood Oregon Resort is pretty spectacular.
"I'd rather be fishing" is more than a catch phrase to you, it's a lifestyle. We speak your same language and are ready when you are! The vast array of rivers, lakes and streams in Mt. Hood Territory stocked full with small mouth bass, trout, winter steelhead, spring Chinook and other salmon gets you excited just thinking about it. Not to mention the overwhelming zen feeling that's happening when visualizing being on fish time.
Head to Dodge Park in Sandy for some of the most beautiful and relaxing bank fishing or fly-fishing around. Book a guide from one of the many outfitters, like The Fly Fishing Shop who gave us a lesson in fly fishing, or one of the many others that cover the Willamette, Sandy, Salmon, Molalla and Clackamas rivers. Places like Ron Lauzon Fly Fishing School or Water Time Outfitters have been guiding memorable fishing trips for years and will add invaluable knowledge to your fishing experience.
If you prefer to enjoy some quiet time instead, then utilize our map-based Fish Finder to locate which waters have the fish you desire and plan your day around whenever you feel awake enough to grab a coffee and go.

Our Table Cooperative farm and grocery store near Sherwood collaborates with other farmers and ranchers to produce local and organic food and drink and sell it through their co-op store.

You'll love the farm-fresh dinners at the very farms the food came from and the combination of farm-fresh foods with beautiful locations.
