The Cloud Cap Inn (or Chalet) is a special building located in a very beautiful place, at the 6,000 foot level of the north side of Mt. Hood. It is also an old and historic place, built in 1889, that represents a time in the settlement of the area when Anglo American settlers began recreating in the mountains and turning to nature for relaxation and inspiration.<\/p>\r\n

This site provides an interesting excursion into the alpine countryside while also providing a destination and interesting attraction. Members of The Crag Rats, a climbing club from Hood River that has the permit to occupy the Inn, will allow the public to come inside and see the rustic building. It is representational of traditional alpine architecture and for the most part is preserved as an historic lodge, looking much like it did over 100 years ago. <\/p>","post_name":"cloud-cap-inn","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.5198","lng":"-121.597","distance":"4.4","permalink":"\/see-do\/oregon-heritage\/history-heritage\/cloud-cap-inn\/","terms":"a Sustainable Travel<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"1215485","post_title":"Parkdale Lava Flow","post_content":"

In the small town of Parkdale, the unexpected view of a dark wall of lava known as the Parkdale Lava Flow is a surprise to even longtime Oregonians. This dramatic 7,000-year-old flow is among the largest and youngest in the Cascades. The area can be explored off-trail, with access from adjacent forest roads.<\/p>","post_name":"parkdale-lava-flow","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.5198","lng":"-121.597","distance":"4.4","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/oregon-adventurecation\/parkdale-lava-flow\/","terms":"an Outdoors & Nature<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"666538","post_title":"Wyeast Expeditions","post_content":"","post_name":"wyeast-expeditions","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.5427","lng":"-121.568","distance":"5.6","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/wyeast-expeditions\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"9000","post_title":"Field N Marsh Outfitters","post_content":"","post_name":"field-n-marsh-outfitters","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.4928","lng":"-121.587","distance":"6.4","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/hunting\/field-n-marsh-outfitters\/","terms":"a Hunting Guide<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"6837","post_title":"Oak Ridge Trail","post_content":"Oak Ridge Trail ascends Oak Ridge via a series of switchbacks passing through open grassy slopes and stands of Oregon White Oak. In some areas the trail is rocky and horseback riders should use caution. After the first mile, the trail enters mixed oak and fir and eventually the oak is left behind. New the top of the ridge, the trail crosses Road 1700640 and a few hundred yards beyond joins Surveyors Ridge Trail #688. Bald Butte (3,780') is 1.8 miles to the north, and Rimrock (site of fire lookout, 4,300') is 2.3 miles to the south.

The trial features views of Mt. Hood as well as Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Rainier and the Hood River Valley. It is also a top choice for an early season hike as visitors can enjoy a wonderful display of wildflowers (Lupine, Balsam Root, Indian Paintbrush, etc.) that cover the hillside from mid-April through June.","post_name":"oak-ridge-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.5207","lng":"-121.552","distance":"7.2","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/cycling\/hiking\/oak-ridge-trail\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"}]},"success":true,"html":""}
