Brightwood Travel Tips

All Weather Recreation Available from Brightwood Vacation Rentals

Winter adventurists will delight in the proximity to ski resorts that you get with Brightwood vacation rentals. Four ski areas are nearby including the only resort in America with year-round skiing, Timberline Lodge, and Mt. Hood Ski Bowl, where night skiing is popular due to the size of the lighted area. Snowboarding is available as well. Spend your vacation days on the slopes and then rest by your personal fireplace in your Mt. Hood cabin.

Summer activities are even more plentiful and are easily accessible from Brightwood lodging. Mt. Hood National Forest is out your front door, so take advantage of the campsites with panoramic vistas, and hiking trails amid the scents and sounds of rustling trees and bird calls. You can kayak, raft, fish, or simply enjoy the rushing sounds of the Sandy River or the Clackamas River, or in one of the numerous lakes within the forest. Windsurfing is another popular activity here where the Gorge's strong winds create ideal conditions for sails in Hood River. Whatever your outdoor pleasure, Mt. Hood cabins offer the convenience you're looking for without the expensive price tag of hotels.

View Nature at Its Best from Brightwood Lodging

The largest of over seventy waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge is Multnomah Falls, a gorgeous must-see attraction, year round. In autumn, the fall's surrounding trails are a great place to view stunning reds, yellows, and oranges in the trees, but plan ahead in the summer because its beauty is well known, and it can get a bit crowded. Get up close to spawning salmon jumping upstream from a visitor center that's underwater at Bonneville Dam, or interact with living history and exhibits at End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center. Your Brightwood vacation rental is a great base camp for a variety of educational and adventurous nature experiences.
