The sound of the river while hiking is tranquil and soul cleansing. This trail is breathtaking all four seasons. From the beautiful flowers in spring to the changing of the leaves in Fall. The Salmon River Trail #742 starts a little further before the bridge on the Salmon River Road. This trail winds from the edge of the Salmon River to a bluff with several view points.

Mt. Hood Reflected in Mirror Lake

Mt. Hood as viewed from Mirror Lake, a very popular hike.

There’s still plenty of summer left here on the Mountain.  Just because the calendar reads the end of July and the kids go back to school the end of August doesn’t mean there isn’t time for a great getaway at the “nearby, far away vacation place.”

Play all day at The Adventure Park at Mt. Hood Ski Bowl, pull out those hiking boots and decide which trails you’d like to take on (based on degree of difficulty) at www.nwhiker.com, check the tires on your mountain bike and see what challenges you’d like to undertake Ride Oregon website or simply pack a few things and head to Whispering Woods Resort for a bit of relaxing by the pool.

Clackamas County Rebuilding the Arrah Wanna Bridge near Whispering Woods Resort

April 3, 2012 by · Comments Off on Clackamas County Rebuilding the Arrah Wanna Bridge near Whispering Woods Resort 

Beginning in April 2012, a Clackamas County-funded project to replace the Arrah Wanna Bridge is scheduled to begin. The current, one lane bridge was built in 1910 and move to its current location in 1957. According to the County, replacement is being undertaken due to deficiencies of a structural and functional nature.

If you are staying at Whispering Woods Resort from April 2012 through the end of October, 2013, it is unlikely you will even be aware of this project. Most Mt. Hood lodging and rental guests never venture far enough south on Arrah Wanna Boulevard to even see the bridge.

Just be aware, if you DO travel south on Arrah Wanna Boulevard to the bridge, you may encounter construction delays of up to 20 minutes. Extended delays of up to 60 minutes are only supposed to occur twice during the entire project.

For those who are interested, you can find more details at www.clackamas.us/transportation/. Just look for “Road & Bridge Projects” near the top of the navigation in the left column.

Source: Clackamas County notice to Residents and Property Owners in the Arrah Wanna Bridge Area, March 13, 2012


As of May 7, 2012, this project has been delayed until the spring of 2013.  The delay is due to a mistake made during the bidding process.  Per Clackamas County, the current bridge is safe up to the posted weight restrictions.  For more details, visit the Clackamas County Department of Transporation and Development website at:  www.clackamas.us/transportation/

A Glorious Mt. Hood Day at Whispering Woods Resort

Glorious Mt. Hood Day at Whispering Woods Resort

View from a 1 BR Back Deck at Whispering Woods Resort

Today is one of those glorious Mt. Hood days at Whispering Woods Resort that cannot go unnoticed.

The ground is covered with a bit of late winter snow. The clouds are breaking up and blue sky enlivens a beautiful pallet of winter colors. And the sun, yes the SUN! is smiling down on those who venture outside, casting its warm net on all who long to be captured.

Take a deep breath! Now exhale. Didn’t that feel refreshing?!

That’s what makes winter in the Mt. Hood Territory so special. You never know what you may encounter, from a lively family of deer to a rushing river, a sunlit hillside or a gorgeous, natural portrait ablaze with color right outside your back door.

A friend of mine just called me after returning from 7 days on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. Poor guy, I really don’t know why he left.

OK, maybe that’s not true. But, I’m glad today turned out the way it did and that I was able to spend some time outside my office enjoying it. I couldn’t be happier than staring down the snow-covered 9th fairway right behind Whispering Woods Resort.

If you haven’t been up to see us in a while or you never have (for shame), you really should come visit! Our fully furnished condos offer something special among so many Mt. Hood lodging options.

We would love to be your host!
