Show more info about Rhododendron

Located along the Mt. Hood Scenic Byway on a 19th-century pioneer wagon route, Rhododendron nestles into the western flank of that craggy peak. The terrain that proved so treacherous for wagons today makes for great mountain biking. With easy access to outdoor pursuits year-round, Rhododendron exudes the warmth of a friendly alpine town. Hit the trails, head to the slopes or simply relax.

Mt. Hood / The Gorge

Rhododendron is located in Mt. Hood / The Gorge, home to the towering cliffs and waterfalls of the Columbia River Gorge and the snowy peak of Mt. Hood.
