Mt Hood Swimming




Swimming on Mt Hood rivers is done by the brave only most of the year because the glacier fed streams are generally quite chilly. However, in late August the streams do warm some. There is a very nice swimming hole on the Salmon River about 30 feet upstream of the cabin also there are sports to swim in front of the cabins on the Zigzag River. You may just want to wade, but on a hot day a dip is refreshing. There is also warmer lake swimming available. Location of the good lakes for swimming can be found from the Mt Hood Information Center.

The Information Center is located at 65000 East HWY 26, Welches, Oregon, 97067. It is a great source of information for all Mt. Hood activities.
