Welches is an unincorporated community in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States. It is located within the Mount Hood Corridor between Zigzag and Wemme along U.S. Route 26. It is one of the communities that make up the Villages at Mount Hood.

According to "Oregon Geographic Names" the community was named after Samuel Welch, a homesteader who settled near Welches Creek in 1882. A post office was established here in 1905.
