For a relatively easy hike, with a lot of reward, I’d say Cascade Head. It combines the beauty of Pacific Northwest forests, with the scenic farmland surrounding it, and culminates with a breathtaking view of the vastness of the coast. An absolutely stunning wander through all the things that make Oregon great!
Other questions about Outdoor Adventure
- I’d like to get information about bicycling the entire length of the OC&E Woods Line State Trail. I’d like to hear from someone who has actually done it. I’m interested in the best type of bicycle to use, is an off-road touring bike OK (Salsa Fargo, for instance), recommended tire size, water availability (streams, creeks, etc.), location of the trailhead in the Sycan Marsh, and so on. I haven’t been able to get much information from people who have cycled on the trail. Thanks.
- Where are some good spots for a scenic Oregon camping and fishing trip?
- What are some good day trips from Portland where I can go hiking in the mountains?
