The book, 100 Hikes in Northwest Oregon & Southwest Washington, is an excellent guide for those who are looking to find hike in the area. This is an essential book to have with you when you are camping or exploring Oregon has it has hikes for the entire northwest area of the state. As the title states, this book will guide you on 100 different hikes ranging from easy to very difficult.

The book does a good job of splitting up the area geographically into the following: Portland, Southwest Washington, Columbia Gorge, Mount Hood – West, Mount Hood – East and the Clackamas Foothills. Each hike is given a rating of easy, moderate or hard and quickly lets you know if it is good for kids, open year round and backpacking friendly. In addition, there is a nice map in the front of the book to provide a quick glance of hikes that may be nearby.

Many of the hikes in this book are on trails that have multiple approaches and the book nicely outlines the different ways you could do the same hike. For example, an easy hike will be explained and then on the same trail a longer more difficult loop may be possible as well. The author provides great detail in how to locate the trail-heads and offers tips on scenic features to look out for.

Overall this is an excellent guide book for hikes in Oregon and should be a part of every northwest outdoor enthusiast’s library.
