Bennet Pass Trailhead and Sno Park

add an alternate name

Summary


During heavy snow years, snowmobiles will not be able to access the Terrible Treverse area because the area fills with snow due to the high elevations and steep canyon walls. This site is good early in the winter season due to the higher elevation. Follow direction of Meadows parking guards for access to sno-park on busy days. This lot has a five percent grade so good tires are a must. Parking lot has space for 30 vehicles. Trailers are allowed.

General Notes

Parking: NOTE: This off-ramp is the main access to the Upper Mt. Hood Meadows parking lot. When the Upper Lot is full, Meadows employees have been blocking it to make people park in the lower Hood River Meadows lot.

Hood Meadows lot. They
