Mt. Hood Scenic Byway

Interstate 84.
Fairview, OR 97024

There are few more iconic symbols of Oregon than Mt. Hood, crowned one of Oregon's 7 Wonders, the state's highest point at 11,245 feet and the fourth highest peak in the entire Cascade Mountain Range. Known as Wy'east to the native Multnomah people, it is a dormant stratovolcano that last erupted in the 1780s; just a decade later, British navy explorers spotted it from the Columbia River and named it after a British admiral. Twelve glaciers surround Hood's pyramidal summit, a peak of incomparable alpine beauty that graces the horizon from Portland to beyond The Dalles. This route provides Hood views like no other as it arcs around the mountain's base.
