Preserve the Forest

The northeast side of Mt. Hood offers priceless backcountry recreation:

  • 2,200 acres of wild and roadless backcountry
  • Mt. Hood’s only accessible non-motorized recreation area
  • Tilly Jane Trail - heavily used by skiers, snowshoers, and hikers
  • Prime angling and non-motorized boating on Hood River
  • Affordable recreation for all

The forest area on the northeast side of Mt. Hood is a transitional area between distinct forest zones, offering a wide mix of plant species.  Within a relatively small area are examples of a variety of large tree species: Douglas fir, white fir, grand fir, noble fir, larch, hemlock, white pine, black pine, ponderosa pine, cedar, aspen, cottonwood, chinquapin, and Englemann spruce. This mix of forest stands in contrast to a monoculture woods maintained primarily for commercial purposes.
