There is no doubt why Mount Hood is one of Travel Oregon's 7 Wonders, but there's more to this mountain than Trillium and Mirror Lake (though they are both beautiful locations). From hiking, mountain biking, and kayaking, to birdwatching, camping and fire lookouts; Mount Hood has a lot to offer any type of visitor.

In addition to Mount Hood's 5 Lesser Known Day Hikes and Mount Hood's 17 Best Campgounds, we've rounded up a few more of Mount Hood's lesser traveled trails, campgrounds and unique destinations to get you a little deeper into the Mount Hood Wilderness. Most of these trailheads are within 25 miles of Government Camp.
