Don't let the title put you off. Easy is a relative term. In this case, it does not mean "sissy." Rather, easy means gentle on the knees, whether you are a mature hiker whose knees are getting tender or a novice hiker looking for hikes that are not too strenuous on the body yet provide lots of visual and, still, physical rewards. These Oregon hikes are listed in two ways: by region and by level of physical output, all the way up to "punishing." Each hike includes various ratings, directions to the trailhead, a trail description, a topographical map, photo, and a suggestion for extending the hike. A definite must-have for hikers in or near Oregon.
