What are your favorite Oregon winter adventures?
During winter, there are tons of activities you can do, from skiing or snowboarding, to snowshoeing, hiking and soaking in hot springs! You can camp in the national forests or wilderness areas, or there are some campgrounds open too, depending on where you want to go. There are also some fun places to stay, like a fire lookout or the Tilly Jane A-Frame on Mt. Hood, which would be more rustic and would require reservations in advance. Alternatively, you could book a hotel or vacation rental in one of our mountain towns, like Government Camp, Hood River, Sisters, Bend or Sunriver. We’re having a great winter in Oregon, so if you’re looking for snow, you can find it across the state!

- 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.
