So many angles for pictures. So much to do. This is a beautiful mountain. Lakes, fishing, hiking, boating, skiing , berry picking, etc etc and etc. Everything in the outdoors, Mount Hood has got it.

Hey all Looking for help on what to see: 6 day trip flying into Portland renting a car flying out of Seattle. First time to Port, have been to Seattle's downtown, but nothing else. Originally had set for 3days in Mt. Hood/Portland area to explore downtown & some hiking around Mt. Hood/Columbia River Gorge exploring Then 3 days either around Port Angeles to see visit Olympic National Park sites, or using those same days and staying close to Rainer National Park to do some hiking/see Mt. Saint Helens. Ideally since we are for sure spending time in Portland Area & Mt. Hood bc we have never been to the area. I was thinking it would be great to get up to the Olympic site where there is different vegetation, beaches, etc. but after reading some comments, it seems that Rainer & Mt. Saint Helens are not to be missed. We could def hit either Rainer or Mt. SH for a 4hour stint on the day we drive up to Olympic area, but probably not both... My question is for people who have been to both, if you had to cut out something what would you cut out? Is 3days/3days too much at either? If so, should we try 2/2/2 or a 2/1/3 if you think all of the stops listed are obtainable. Thanks so much for your help.

I think you are cramming way too much into a very short period of time. Figure out what is most important to you and focus your time there.

We will be pulling a 30 foot travel trailer in July. I am concerned about the access to Hood River campground. Is it a hard pull up or very Steep down?

Many places actually, but I love the views from Parkdale, Oregon in April & May when the apple and pear trees blossom. Also, a trip to Timberline Lodge is fabulous, and right on the Mt.
