Best Short Hikes in Northwest Oregon gathers the preeminent trail offerings from the Pacific coast to the Cascade crest and encompasses the attractions of the Coast Range, Willamette Valley, and Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. This guidebook brings together old favorites and lesser-known trails. Oregon's northwest quadrant bursts with diversity-wilderness realms, wildlife areas, volcanic and glacial legacies, old-growth forests, idyllic valley niches, and untrammeled coast. Not bad for a bunch of short hikes!

Editorial Reviews

Idaho Statesman
If you're heading to the Oregon Coast this summer and want to do some hiking, check out Best Short Hikes in Northwest Oregon.
Oregonian
Best Short Hikes in Northwest Oregon…will make the perfect companion this summer when you've got time to explore less familiar parts of Oregon's northwest corner.
OregonLive.com - Terry Richard
A trail-comparison grid lets readers zero in on what trail best suits them. The book, too, has an expansive but welcome definition of northwest Oregon, reaching well south of Willamette Pass. The productive Ostertags have many other Oregon guidebooks, as well as books for California, Pennsylvania, New England, New York.
Idaho Falls Post-Register
If your travels take you into the Portland, Astoria or Willamette Valley areas of Oregon, this book is a wonderful resource for quick hikes…This is the type of book that is a good resource for vacationing families. Take your kids to a colony of puffins off the rocky beach or hike to a lighthouse or through a huge old-growth forest. This book will take you there.
