Spend a night or a weekend in the wilderness. Experience the mountains, coast, old-growth forests, gorges, and canyonlands of Oregon and Washington. Local authors Becky Ohlsen and Douglas Lorain guide you to a spectrum of one- and two-night backpacking trips―from short hikes to extended treks of 20 miles. Explore the Columbia River Gorge, Coast Range, Clackamas River country, Mount Jefferson, and southern Olympic Mountains. Take in the majestic views of the Pacific Northwest’s signature volcanic peaks: Mount Hood, Mount Adams, Mount St. Helens, and Mount Rainier. The Portland area is a short jaunt from boundless backpacking opportunities, so get away from the city hubbub to rejuvenate in nature.
