Anyone know of a good topo map on line for MT Hood? The Mt Hood Ntl Forest site does not have a map.

I climbed Mt Hood in Sept, '85 from Timbeline Lodge. Had a beautiful day, etc. But not hard to believe the problems the weather created this week.

You could start here:

http://www.topozone.com/map.asp?lon=-121.694&lat=45.3736

It's "good" for some definition of "good" (where good, online, and free all intersect anyway.) In my experience, high-resolution maps are not free, or not legal, or both ;)

Google earth has a good satellite image for the mtn, though it's not a topomap.

Here's some more small ones:

Giggy, Tmax, and I climbed Mt Hood this past summer from Timberline... very pretty mtn for being so close to Portland though it suffers the same complex of having a ski lodge on the south face of the mtn.
