New Hikes in NW Oregon 
& SW Washington
Hiking guru William L. Sullivan takes us on a slide show tour of new and changed trails he discovered for the new fourth edition of “100 Hikes in Northwest Oregon & Southwest Washington, ” released in April 2013. We’ll hike to a wildflower hill above Hood River, explore a new path to Fish Creek Mountain, and see what’s been changed by the fires at Mt. Hood. As always, expect anecdotes about geology, history, and wildlife along the way.

Sullivan has written four novels and a dozen nonfiction books about the Northwest, including “Hiking Oregon’s History,” “Oregon Favorites,“ and “The Case of D.B. Cooper’s Parachute” His journal of a 1000-mile hike he took across Oregon, “Listening for Coyote,” was chosen by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission as one of Oregon’s “100 Books,” the 100 most significant books in the state’s history.
