Mount Hood National Forest to reopen most trailheads Friday


MOUNT HOOD, Ore. — Oregon’s tallest mountain will reopen for recreation over two months after trailheads and day-use areas were closed amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Most developed recreation sites will reopen Friday, according to Mount Hood National Forest officials. Some sites will remain closed, including most campgrounds and areas that are still under seasonal closures, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported.

Some facilities will not be maintained daily, including vault toilets, officials said.

Most national forests in Oregon have also begun a phased reopening, including the Willamette and Deschutes national forests in the Cascade Mountains.
