One of the perks of being on vacation is leaving behind the stuff you don't really like doing in your normal day-to-day routine. Thanks to public transit options that extend well beyond the Portland metro area, stopping in Sandy and continuing all the way to Timberline Lodge, you can include driving in that list of things to escape. Traveling along Hwy 26 you have access to all of the best recreation spots on Mt. Hood; all you need to do is check the times and bring small bills for your fare. If you need a little inspiration, we have seasonal ready-made itineraries outlining trailheads, each one in walking distance from a Mt. Hood Express transit stop. And don't worry about not having room for your gear; there's options each step of the journey for your skis and bikes.
