Timberline Lodge Great Northwest Cabins
When I go away on vacation I struggle to decide what to do in an area when there are so many choices. Here are 10 things to do when staying at our beautiful Mt Hood in the summer, all within miles of this paradise!
Why go anywhere right away? When you rent a place you need to enjoy it first before jumping up and heading out. When we go to the we love to sleep in and get up at about 10AM. The sun shines in the great room windows and that is a great sign that it’s time to eat breakfast on the deck. Gather the breakfast cereal, coffee and sweet rolls and enjoy the trees, birds and forest smell as the sun shines down and warms your morning!
Our cabin is in a village of other fine vacation and cabins called Zig Zag Village. Go out the door and take a right and the trail starts right at the end of the road. This trail meanders through the woods, over the creek and within a few minutes the trail is following the mighty Sandy River. There are so many spots to go down to the river, picnic, play and enjoy the views of Mt Hood. You can take this trail up into the National Forest and to the trail head to Ramona Falls (Apx 6 miles total, 12 mi roundtrip). You can also go out the door of the cabin and go left. Follow the road and before it goes left go right and follow it down to the pool and tennis court.

Go out the door of the cabin and go left. Go to the end of the road and before it turns left go right. Follow this road down to the pool and tennis area. It takes less than a few minutes to walk there and is real safe for the whole family. The pool and tennis court sit in the middle of the forest. Bring your towels, chairs and pool floats. There are showers and bathrooms.
