The Villages of Mt. Hood

The Villages at Mount Hood is the common quasi-government of the unincorporated communities of the Mount Hood Corridor. Residents approved its formation in May 2006.

The Villages at Mount Hood was the first established village under Clackamas County's "Complete Communities" ordinance, which allows unincorporated communities to form quasi-governments that allow them to have more direct control regarding the issues and activities that affect them.

The area includes Government Camp, Welches, Rhododendron, Zig Zag, Wemme, Brightwood and Alder Creek. The surrounding communities are also know as the Villages of Mt. Hood and Hoodland. All communities are located along the Mt. Hood Corridor and are located along Hiway 26 only forty five minutes to an hour from Portland.  Located in the foothills of the Cascades, the area is surrounded by the Mt. Hood National Forest and presents incredible beauty. Recreational opportunities abound from skiing, snowboarding, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, fishing and golfing. It’s also a haven for naturalists, history buffs, artists, musicians and writers.
