    Hikes in Oregon

    State in United States

    Oregon has it all – the beaches along the Pacific Ocean, the mountains and national forests that go up central Oregon and the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. The state is a great place to visit, especially in summer where you can spend your entire vacation outdoors, with near perfect weather. Escape the heat with a dip in the Pacific Ocean or any number of the clear rivers that cover the landscape.

    Oregon is a great destination for a holiday, and what we think makes it unique is that the whole darn state is so beautiful. No matter where you go, you find spectacular views. There are also charming towns, full of outdoors adventures. One of our favourites is the town of Bend, one of the great outdoors towns in the US. Surrounded by superb hiking, biking, climbing and lots of snow sports, it’s a cool town with an even better vibe.

    In winter, you can find great skiing on Mt. Hood, with plenty of options for XC skiing or snowshoeing. In summer you can do almost anything, from sea kayaking to hiking and climbing. If you need some snow, head up to Mt. Hood (with a guide of course), try to get to the summit and see the remnants of winter's snow or one of Mt. Hood’s glaciers.

      Open details for Stuart Falls Trail

      Stuart Falls Trail

      Moderate
      18.8 km
      439 m
      4.5-6.5h

      Stuart Falls Trail is an off the beaten path hike in Crater Lake National Park that sees very light traffic. It’s a long, moderately difficult route that leads to a waterfall. While the trail to the waterfall is not the most inspiring, the falls are certainly worth the trip! This hike requires some route-finding skills, so we recommend bringing a downloaded GPS track with you. This route can also be used for backpacking.

      Union Peak Trail

      Moderate
      15.4 km
      513 m
      4-6h

      Union Peak Trail leads through Crater Lake National Park to the top of Union Peak. The route is quite relaxed until the final climb to the top, which is said to be one of the steepest in southern Oregon (according to the signage at the trailhead). Don’t worry, there are lots of good handholds. This route is not a good pick for kids, and although dogs are allowed on leash, they would likely be unable to reach the top with you.
