Located east of Portland, Mount Hood National Forest is a phenomenal and unusual forest formed around the lush and fertile surroundings of a dormant volcano. This means that the forest is exceptionally diverse, with everything from glaciers to lush forestland, alpine meadows to sparkling waterways. This region is wonderful to explore on foot, on one of the numerous well-maintain hiking trails that criss-cross the landscape. But there's plenty more to do, such as biking, swimming, fishing, and kayaking. Make sure to check out Crater Lake, Columbia River Gorge, and Multnomah Falls. And where better to stay than one of these hiking cabins with a hot tub? Each comes equipped with everything you might need for a relaxing vacation in this beautiful corner of the world, and there's an option for every taste and budget.
