Easyish Mount Hood Hike

We have one day to hike near Mount Hood. It will be the second day of our trip, so we may still be a bit jet lagged. Looking for something up to 7/8 miles with a good view of the mountain. Any suggestions most welcome.

Easy to difficult?

Look on www.nwhiker.com and go to Oregon then you will see Mount Hood. Click on that area. the hikes are noted for ease and altitude and feature you want to see and it will open small pictures so that you can see if that is the hike for you.

Best,

We are big hikers and the website that I find the best is www.portlandhikers.org . It is very user friendly as well.

That said, I think the ones with the best views of the mountain are actually super easy hikes. Not quite the mileage you are looking for, but very good views. Lost Lake, Mirror Lake and Trillium Lake all have fantastic views and are super easy, more along the lines of a stroll in the dirt, lol! You could easily do all three of these in one day if you want to overdose on the views;) One that I can think of that has good views, but more the mileage that you want is Bald Mountain. It is about 6.5 miles or so and less than 1500 ft elevation.

Trilium Lake! 4.4 mile loop around the lake from Trilium Sno Park (just a couple miles from Government Camp) with INSANE views of Mt. Hood. The trail is also relatively flat and wide.
