About Mount Hood Railroad
In 1805, the Lewis and Clark expedition discovered the mouth of the Hood River. Subsequent explorers and pioneers discovered the dense forests and rich, fertile soil of the Hood River valley—now internationally famous for its fruit industry. The Mt. Hood Railroad served as an economic lifeline for the valley, carrying fruit and forest products to market since 1906. In the 1920s and 30s the railroad was used as a commuter train by area residents. While still an active freight line, our rail tours now offer visitors some of Oregon’s most breathtaking scenery—from the town of Hood River toward the base of Mt. Hood.
