Oregon has hot high desert country to the east, balmy coast to the west, and mountains, rivers and forests in between. Not to mention many great towns on your must-see list. You’ve got a lot of ground to cover, and we are here to help you figure out how to get around.

 

Travel Alerts: Drought & Wildfires: Summers in Oregon deliver beautiful weather, long days and, occasionally, droughts and wildfires. The safety of Oregon residents and visitors is our highest priority. Before venturing out, we recommend checking these resources for the most up-to-date information on traveling throughout the state: Northwest Interagency Coordination Center, the Oregon Department of Forestry, Oregon Smoke Information and TripCheck. Please leave Oregon as beautiful as you found it and obey all campfire and smoking restrictions.

 

Marijuana Law: As of July 1, Oregon’s recreational marijuana laws are in effect. That means adults age 21 and older can legally possess and use recreational marijuana. Please be sure to learn what’s legal and what’s not.

  1. Where can I hike to a view of all the mountains?

    Off the top of my head, I believe the trail you're referring to is the Larch Mountain trail in the Gorge. From the top on a clear day you can see Mt. Shasta, the Sisters, Mt. Jefferson, Mt. Washington, Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens. Larch Mountain has 3 trailheads. The first is at Multnomah Falls. The second is about half way up the road, where the gate usually is locked…
