Mount Hood National Forest extends south from the Columbia River Gorge across more than 60 miles of forested mountains, lakes, and streams to the Olallie Scenic Area at the base of Mt. Jefferson and contains 170 developed recreation sites for fishing, boating, hiking, hunting, rafting, horseback riding, skiing, mountain biking, berry-picking, and mushroom collecting. A portion of the Pacific Crest Trail passes through the national forest on the flanks of the mountain. Mount Hood is a popular destination for mountain climbers, making it the second most climbed mountain in the world.
