Welches Travel Tips

Welches Vacation Rentals Provide Forest Access

Mt. Hood National Forest covers over sixty miles of woods, rivers, streams, lakes, valleys, and peaks that make for a nature lover's paradise. Step outside the door of your Welches vacation rental and inhale the earthy scents and listen to the call of jays and the rush of the Salmon River at the edge of this expansive forest. Within Mt. Hood National Forest, you can hike, backpack, mountain bike, fish, boat, camp, hunt, and even pick berries or gather mushrooms for eating back at your Welches lodging, all among wildflowers and canopies of leafy trees.

Skiing Is Superb on Mt. Hood

Mt. Hood is the highest peak in Oregon and boasts the only year round ski resort in the country: Timberline Lodge. Mt. Hood Meadows and Summit Ski are other good ski and snowboard options, and if you're a fan of hitting the slopes under the stars, Mt. Hood Ski Bowl offers a large night ski area. Some of the four ski areas close to your Welches vacation rental have ski lessons so even beginners can take advantage of the powder. Return to your Welches lodging for a warm drink and a snack, and enjoy your private fireplace. Snowshoeing, cross country and downhill skiing, and cutting your own Christmas tree are other winter activities that make Mt. Hood cabins fantastic all-season destinations.

Golf on a Gorgeous Green Minutes from Welches Lodging

Foxglove Resort at the Mountain in Welches is a challenging par 36 set of fairways lined by forests of pines and in some places, the Salmon River. Foxglove has been around since the '20s, and features water hazards, elevation changes, and a difficult to overcome boulder on hole number one that makes even the most experienced golfers sweat. Come for the challenge and appreciate the scenery. Equipment rentals, restaurants, and fitness facilities, are available as well.
