Exploring The Villages of Mt Hood
The Mt Hood Area Chamber of Commerce serves a fairly large, unincorporated region that includes villages along US Highway 26 from Alder Creek at its west boundary, through Brightwood, Welches, Zigzag, Rhododendron, and Government Camp at its east boundary.
Driving through The Villages of Mt Hood offers long stretches first of forest/farm land, then forest woodland and finally the fragrant stands of mostly evergreens that make up the Mt Hood National Forest. There are many beautiful vistas of grand mountain ridges and the majestic Mt Hood along the way. The Villages of Mt Hood Map (below) will help orient you to the diverse locations for Mt. Hood lodging, dining, shopping and recreation opportunities throughout the region.
