Overview

  • Full-color guide to the state's best 100 hikes
  • Features nine new hikes
  • Author Douglas Lorain is a beloved guidebook writer in the Northwest

What makes a trail a classic hike? "Outstanding scenery," says Doug Lorain, "especially good views." Add in mountain lakes and waterfalls. Sprinkle with wildflowers, old-growth forests, wildlife sightings, and interesting geologic features. All of the hikes Lorain has selected boast at least two of these attributes, and often more. These are simply the best hikes the state of Oregon has to offer. Lorain should know; he's logged more than 16,000 Oregon hiking miles in his boots.

In the new edition of 100 Classic Hikes in Oregon Lorain presents a mix of the most popular trails and lesserknown gems throughout the entire state, including nine new hikes. These well-established trails range from short, easy strolls suitable for children and grandparents to longer backpacking trips for experienced hikers.
