The Forest Service maintains many roads to make it easier for you to access the wonderful recreational opportunities here around Mt. Hood.
Summer is the time in which much of our road maintenance work gets done. Factors such as fires, fallen trees, construction, and wildlife can force road closures in popular areas. Visit our Roads Table frequently for the most up-to-date information about road closures and conditions, and please be sure to confirm with your local district office.
We have reports of high amounts of downed trees on many of our trails due to recent weather events. If you encounter such obstacles on our trails, please let us know by posting on our Facebook Page, Twitter, using our contact us form or by calling our main office to report conditions, (503) 668 1700.
Beginning July 7, 2014 the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) will begin the US 26 Mt. Hood Safety Project. As a part of this project the Tamarack and Laurel Hill quarries, including NFSR 26955 will be closed for public safety due to increased truck traffic in the area. No trail or other recreational facilities will be impacted by the project and the work will be contained to the quarry areas. Please visit our forest orders page for more details and maps of the areas.
