Standing at 11,245 feet, Mt. Hood is Oregon's tallest peak. With sunrise views reaching from Mt. Rainier to the north, Mt. Jefferson and the Three Sisters to the south, a summit experience on Mt. Hood is breathtaking and magical. The south side routes are accessible to climbers with no previous mountaineering experience provided they are in good physical condition at the time of the climb.
