Snowshoeing is the easiest way to GET OUT and experience a winter wonderland in the Mt. Hood National Forest. An activity for all ages and ability levels, if you can walk, you can snowshoe. A guided snowshoeing tour will be one of the best things to do this winter on Mount Hood near Portland, Oregon. Follow trails deep into the forest to discover snow covered old growth trees and see native birds, animals, tracks and more as your guide provides local knowledge and stories about the area. With a variety of tours available, choose from a family adventure on flat groomed trails or explore the steep, deep powder that can challenge the fittest of fit.
We welcome ALL friends, so bring them all. From youngsters to your four-legged friends, snowshoeing is an amazing experience for each and every on of us.
Snowshoeing was one of the earliest known ways to travel from point A to point B in the snow. The sport started with a bow or limb cut from a tree and strapped to your feet. The design then turned to the giant "tennis raquet", and now a new generaton of showshoes has emerged to keep you floating on top of the snow in all conditions. Here at Mt. Hood Adventure we are huge fans of MSR (Mountain Safety Research) snowshoes and offer the Evolutions model for all our customers going out on a tour.
