Zigzag Ranger District spans 250,000 acres on the south and west side of Mt Hood and is about an hour from Portland. 

The district manages one of the region's largest recreation programs including 550 summer homes, 30 developed campgrounds, three ski areas including Timberline Lodge, over 300 miles of trails, and two wilderness areas.  

The district also manages the Bull Run Watershed cooperatively with the City of Portland, which supplies drinking water to the Portland metro area. 

The Zigzag Ranger District offices are historic, constructed in the 1930s by the CCC.
