Overview

Oregon’s Ancient Forests is a guidebook with a purpose: to inspire readers to learn about and visit Oregon’s rapturous old-growth forests, and then love them enough to keep them protected. Not just for hikers, this Oregon Wild– sponsored guide explains where the forests are and who manages them, the threats they face, and an action plan for protecting what remains and restoring damaged forests so they may become the ancient forests of the future. Author Chandra LeGue discusses forest ecology, flora, and fauna and also details 91 of her favorite hikes across the state. Each hike features:
  • Trailhead GPS coordinates and driving directions
  • Trail distance, elevation gain, difficulty level, and best season to visit
  • Type and protection status of the forest
  • Full-color maps and photos
