Summertime fun for all ages on Mount Hood

Hike, mountain bike, disc golf, and more at these mountain resorts.

A crowd of people face a small outdoor stage in the mountains on a summer day.

Enjoy music, brews, and a bike race while raising money for OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital at Timberline Daydream on Sunday, Sept. 1.

The slopes on Mount Hood have largely shed their white winter cloaks and chair lifts are transporting folks wearing shorts instead of heavy snow gear. Here are some things to do at the area’s various resorts while the mountain is green.
