New Hikes in NW Oregon & SW Washington

Oregon’s hiking guru takes us on an illustrated tour of a dozen new hikes he discovered while researching the just-released fifth edition of his book, “100 Hikes in NW Oregon & SW Washington.” Come discover a new waterfall trail near Hood River, an overlooked wildflower hike on the permit-free side of Mt. Adams, and a new kids’ hike along the Columbia River near Portland. Along the way get the latest news about fire-damaged trails in the Columbia Gorge, as well as anecdotes about history, wildflowers, and more.

Sullivan has written 21 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 most significant books in the state’s history.
