Surf the county website
There's plenty of reading material right here on our website! Our blog page highlights up-to-the-minute stories and news happening in the county. Sit down for a light afternoon (or 20 of them) to become informed about housing programs, land use proposals, warming centers, transportation maintenance or wastewater treatment. Or just stop by for the pretty pictures. They say they’re worth a thousand words so we’ll count that as reading.

There’s no need to leave Clackamas County to see something new. From the mountain to the valley, there are plenty of unique locations and trails for you to explore. Check out a few of our favorites in the Explore Clackamas County video series and head over to the Mt. Hood Territory website to start planning your trip.
