More Info

Situated in northwest Oregon, just south of the Columbia River Gorge and Washington state border, Portland is the perfect spot for a mountain climbing adventure.

Mount Hood is the city’s most popular mountain climbing destination. The potentially active volcano boasts various routes up to the summit, each of which is as scenic as the previous one and takes two days to complete.

Climbers looking for an intermediate-level challenge generally take the Leuthold Couloir or Coe Glacier route. Climbers looking for a slightly tougher challenge should try out the Newton Clark Glacier Route or the Sunshine Route. For beginners, the southside provides the easiest access to the summit.

Outside of Mount Hood, Mount Jefferson is another popular mountain climbing destination. The peak is among the most prominent in its section of the Cascade Range, about two hours south of Portland, and provides excellent views of the surroundings.
