The Top 30 Hikes in Oregon

    By: The Outbound Collective + Save to a List

    Let the trail take you away for a little while.

    Waterfalls, waterfalls, and more waterfalls. Oregon definitely has more than it's fair share of hikes ending in beautiful waterfalls - the Columbia River Gorge alone has enough to last a lifetime of hiking. But that's not all, folks. Explore the rugged Cascade Mountains and catch sunset at one of the fire lookouts at the summit or take a drive out to the gorgeous Oregon Coast. Wherever you go, you won't be disappointed. You've got your work cut out for you if you want to see it all - start planning now!
