How to Travel Responsibly in Mt. Hood Territory

Mt. Hood Territory's #1 priority for visitors and residents is their wellbeing. 

Our area is rich in history, food straight from the farm, and is home to almost unlimited recreational possibilities. Whether you are planning your trip now or looking for inspiration for a later date, here are some things we'd like you to know to keep your plans as responsible as possible.

Planning ahead of your visit is our number one recommendation for you to enjoy your stay in Mt. Hood Territory. Here are a few things to consider: 

  • Call ahead and check to make sure the places you want to visit are open. Even if you've checked their hours online, it's still a good idea to call ahead to be sure there haven't been any unexpected interruptions.
  • Be kind and patient with front line workers in businesses that you visit. They are adapting to the new norm, with new procedures and potentially high demand with limited resources. 
  • Things change rapidly, so have a Plan B (and maybe Plan C) for your trip ready to go if needed.


Although the state is working toward reopening and some restrictions have lifted, safety is still a first priority for local businesses and their employees. Oregon's Governor Brown announced that beginning August 27, 2021 masks will once again be required in all indoor settings, plus in public outdoor settings where distancing is not possible, statewide. If a business asks that you wear a mask or use hand sanitizer, please be respectful of their request. Additionally, changes to procedures and capacity may have many businesses operating with a limited staff while they work to rebuild.
