Description

This viewpoint showcases a 180-degree view of Mt. Hood with a large meadow below it, the Sandy River 400 feet below, the Bull Run Watershed (source of Portland's water), Mt. Adams, and other mountains in Washington. It offers one of the best views in Oregon. Bonus points for stopping by during sunrise, sunset with alpen glow on Mt. Hood, or when a full moon is rising behind the mountain. This is a great spot for family pictures.

On the Road: The viewpoint is less than a mile down Bluff Road from Highway 26. There is parking at the site. Nearby trails below the viewpoint are accessible in Sandy River Park. See trail map.

Family Friendly: This spot is directly accessible by car and has a viewing telescope for kids to zoom in on Mt. Hood and other spots on the horizon.
