There's LOTS of reasons to visit this summer.....

Chimney Rock Aframe
Join us for long days and cool evenings this summer at Summit Meadow Cabins, off the beaten path on Mt Hood's southern slope.

There's a lot to do, whether you want to spend your days hanging out at the cabin, out do yourself on an awesome bike ride, Summer ski on the Palmer chairlift, enjoy a hike, visit one of our many lakes, or ?
Trilliums are one of the first wildflowers to pop up

Fused glass class at the Arts Cabin
Intersted in water colors, digital photography, fused glass or weaving? The Arts Cabins offers classes throughout the summer and the Mt Hood Cultural Center & Museum is always an interesting stop.  

Tamanawas Falls
Avalanche lillies along the Timberline Tr
June brings wildflowers, migratory birds, the opening of Volcano Cones (the best ice cream in Government Camp), the 30th annual Wy East Nordic  Summer Tele Camp and more. 
Indian Paintbrush
Galaxy is my favorite flavor!

Forest Service Interpretive programs at several locations, including Timberline Lodge & Trillium Lake, are in full swing .
Enjoy Timberline's Magic Mile Sky Ride or summer skiing on the Palmer Snowfield & the Mt Hood Summer Adventure park.

Trillium Lake less than 1.5 mi from Summit Meadow Cabins
Trillium Lake does warm up enough for most of us to enjoy a dip (or a lap).
How about huckleberry picking, incredible upper mountain hikes, a visit to HawkWatch's  Bonney Butte site.  You'll be amazed at the volume of raptors along this flyway.....
