Grouse Vista is a southern trailhead for Silver Star Mountain. Better roads, same great views at the top.

Wahtum Lake is located west of Hood River, between Mount Hood and the Columbia River Gorge. There are many trails that cross through this area, including Eagle Creek, Herman Creek and the PCT.

Crescent Beach is one of my favorite locations on the Oregon Coast. The beach can only be reached via a 1.2 mile hike through muddy coastal forest.

I can’t get enough of Siouxon, so I went again with two friends. This time, our campsite was near the Wildcat Trail.

The Salmon River begins on Mount Hood, and winds through the Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness before it joins the Sandy River. This hike goes through old-growth forest next to the river, climbing to a viewpoint about 600 feet above it.

One of my favorite places is a hike through one of the greenest forests around, with the clear waters of Siouxon Creek next to the trail. This is a good place for early season backpacking.

Starting at the Wahkeena Falls trailhead, we hiked up to the source of Wahkeena Creek, a spring that comes up out of the ground and then cascades down the hillside as a creek.
