Our savvy guides will switch up the route to ensure you get the best Mt. Hood Loop tour experience.
Multnomah Falls: Get ready to be awestruck by mighty Multnomah Falls! This ancient waterfall, which towers at a colossal 620 feet, is fueled by underground streams from Larch Mountain. Brace yourself for a two-part waterfall spectacle, where the upper falls freefalls a staggering 542 feet into a pool, then drops another 69 feet to form a creek that flows into the Columbia River. This natural wonder is the highest waterfall in Oregon and the second highest year-round waterfall in the United States. It’s no surprise that this set of falls near Portland is the state’s top natural attraction, attracting over 2.5 million visitors a year from all around the globe.
As you stand at the base of the falls, you’ll be treated to the stunning Multnomah Falls Lodge, a full-service day lodge that boasts a restaurant serving up local cuisine, an extensive gift shop, a snack and espresso bar, and an interpretive center. Explore the lodge and then hike up to the Multnomah Falls bridge, also known as the Benson Bridge, for an even closer look at this natural wonder. Get ready to be swept off your feet by the sheer beauty of Multnomah Falls!
Hood River: Just an hour’s drive from Portland lies the charming town of Hood River, Oregon. Nestled in a valley between two possibly active volcanoes, Mt. Adams and Mt. Hood, this town’s popularity sky-rocketed in the 80s as a windsurfing haven. Nowadays, it’s the go-to spot for outdoor adventurers seeking thrills in mountain biking, kayaking, paragliding, rock climbing, hiking, and skiing. And let’s not forget about the foodies! Downtown Hood River boasts a smorgasbord of eateries and craft breweries like Boda’s Kitchen and Double Mountain Brewery, plus some quirky shops and wine tasting rooms. After lunch, we’ll venture into the Hood River Valley to soak up the natural beauty, thousands of acres of fruit orchards, and generations of farming know-how. As we take in the breathtaking views, hear all about the history of this area’s agricultural and timber industry.
Rowena Crest: Buckle up and witness the jaw-dropping transformation of nature and climate on our adventure towards iconic Rowena Crest. Once known as Memaloose Castle, this massive basalt feature is a must-see that will make your heart race! Get ready to travel back in time as we hit the Historic Columbia River Highway, a road that dates back to the early 1900s and was designed to give those old-school cars a chance to climb the 700 feet to the top. Like a slow-motion rollercoaster, we’ll zigzag up horseshoe curves and switchbacks, getting up close and personal with the road’s artistic design.
Finally, the big moment arrives! Behold the stunning view from Rowena Crest, where the landscape looks like a masterpiece carved out by the great ice age Missoula Floods. As one of Oregon’s most photographed spots, this horseshoe-shaped road and its breathtaking view will leave you feeling like a true adventurer!
Fruit Stands: Get your taste buds ready for a locally grown feast along the stunning “Fruit Loop” drive in Hood River County! This road trip takes you through the picturesque orchards, vineyards, and family farms of the valley. With a whopping 28 fruit stands along the way, you’ll have a ball picking from a variety of fresh fruits, veggies, flowers, homemade pies, jams, syrups, honey, ciders, and even handcrafted artisanal gifts. Did you know that Hood River County is the world’s top producer of Anjou pears and the largest pear-growing area in the US? But wait, there’s more! This region is also known for growing mouth-watering big tree fruits like apples, cherries, nectarines, and peaches. We’ll make a pit stop at a fruit stand like Packer Orchards & Bakery so you can sample and grab some of these farm-to-table goodies, and take a little piece of Oregon home with you.
Mt. Hood and Timberline Lodge: At 11,249 feet, Mt. Hood stands tall, flaunting its icy crown and boasting world-renowned ski areas. Timberline, in particular, is a snow magnet and the proud owner of the longest ski season in North America. But, hold onto your beanies, folks! The real star of the show is the jaw-dropping Timberline Lodge. This architectural masterpiece has been wowing visitors for over 80 years, thanks to a little help from the WPA and President Franklin D. Roosevelt himself. The lodge’s interior is a wild-west wonderland, showcasing bold Art Deco designs that scream 1930s America. Think stone arches, wrought iron accents, and roaring fireplaces, all made with rough-cut stone. So, take a break from the slopes and snap some pics of the mountain, wander through the lodge, and savor a cup of the Snow-Capped Dream, the most decadent hot chocolate you’ll ever taste!
