Hwy 26 toward Mt Hood

There are several camping and / or picnic areas along Highway 26 east of Sandy as you're headed up to Mt. Hood. One suggestion, however, which ever direction you're going in the afternoon, plan on stopping on the side of the highway that will let you pull into traffic without having to cross over the highway. Afternoons on hwy 26 can be busy, busy, busy and since this is a highway with 55 mph traffic crossing over will be next to impossible to do safely!
