Mt. Hood or Crater Lake?

Jump to last reply

I will be in Oregon (Portland) for work at the end of August. I plan to stay 2 extra days to visit family in Portland as well. I was hoping to get some hiking in and thought I might visit either Mt. Hood or Crater Lake during the extra days. So here are my questions:

1. If you had 2 days to spend at either area, which would you choose?
2. Is the hiking better at one as opposed to the other?
3. Would it be difficult to find lodging around Crater Lake if I made a last minute decision to go there?

Distance and weather are going to be the biggest consideration. It would only be about 1.5 hours to drive to Mt. Hood, so I'd have more time there. Crater Lake would be about a 4.5 hour drive.
If I chose Mt. Hood, I would stay at my brother's in Portland and wouldn't have to pay lodging. If I chose Mt. Hood, I would need lodging for the night. Cost isn't really an issue. I wasn't sure if 2 days would be adequate for Crater Lake, so if not, I'll just go to Mt. Hood instead.

What are your thoughts?
