Zigzag, Oregon

Zigzag is an unincorporated community in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States. It is located within the Mount Hood Corridor, between Rhododendron and Welches on U.S. Route 26. The community is part of the Villages at Mount Hood, which stretches from the border of Sandy to Government Camp. The town is named after the nearby Zigzag River, a tributary of the Sandy River, which is in turn a tributary of the Columbia River. One of the ranger stations for the Mount Hood National Forest is located there, in a cabin built in the early 1900s and now on the National Register of Historic Places.
