  • Extremely accessible, close to town, and an amazing view of the valley. It's incredible how diverse and unique the Oregon landscape is, and the west side of Mount Hood is no exception. This is a nice place to stop if you're driving through Sandy, only a couple minutes of US-26, and is a great place to take out-of-towners. If you're lucky, you'll catch some of the local photographers in action! This location also features a free mounted telescope.
  • Stopped at the viewpoint. It's in a quiet location next to an attractive residential area. Its view is quite expansive and attractive overlooking the valley. But, as with my last visit to this area, Mt. Hood was hiding above the clouds. This may be an advantageous vantage point, but when the clouds are down low, you end up with a beautiful view of them and not the mountain.
