⚠️NEW Hike Oregon guidebook!
The brand new Hike Oregon guidebook 'Lakes of the Cascades: 50 Enchanting Oregon Lake Hikes' focuses on those beautiful alpine lakes from the Mount Hood area all the way down to Southern Oregon. Some lakes have pristine sandy shorelines, some have views for days, some are surrounded by lush forests, and some are rocky and perfect for fishing. Almost all of the hikes in this book are awesome backpacking destinations, whether you want to take the kids for a short 2-4 miles into the wilderness, or you want to hike for 12 miles before getting to your secluded cascade lake. I have included fishing information for these lakes for those of you who want to catch your own dinner, and as always, I include driving directions from 4-5 major towns in the state, there are color topographical maps with a scannable QR code so you can have the map on your phone, and each hike write-up features 1-3 color pictures.
What trails are currently accessible:
With the wildfire devastation that occurred in Oregon in September 2020, fires from the 2021 and 2022 summer, it can be difficult to know what trails are open and hikeable.
