Timberline Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Timberline Lodge was built in 1937 by the Works Progress Administration and dedicated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt the same day that he dedicated Bonneville Dam. But as astounding as the interior is, it’s the setting that beckons one to spend time here.
Only a few peaks in Oregon rise above it, and with few trees around, the views are amazing, especially to the summit of Mount Hood—the highest point in the state—3 miles away, and to Mount Jefferson, 45 miles south. In August, wildflowers bloom everywhere."
