At hood most of the camping goes down near Rhododendron which is a good distance from timberline, about 16 Miles. Iíve been riding the Mt. Hood Express (bus to timberline) for like 3 or 4 seasons and the nearest stop is a mile or two from the campsites. Iíve never actually camped in the forest but from what I understand it would be pretty hard to catch public transportation from there. Iíve also heard of camping in govy, which would make getting to public transportation a lot easier but it is also a lot higher up the mountain which I would imagine would make camping harder due to the weather especially considering weíre still getting powder right now. Anyone correct me if Iím wrong on something here.
