This byway crosses several waterways as it takes you around the scenic mountain area of Mt. Hood National Forest. You’ll drive through a number of villages on US 26 before you reach SR 35 and head uphill toward majestic Mt. Hood. Extending from Mt. Hood’s northern slope to Columbia River Gorge’s southern shore, Hood River Valley is cloaked in forests and orchards.
