Hiking & Biking in Oregon
Discover State Parks & the Columbia River Gorge
Silver Falls State Park
If you enjoy the outdoors, you’ll love your time in Oregon. Outdoor enthusiasts find miles upon miles of hiking and biking trails, just waiting to be used all year long.
Cyclists are also in luck. Zip down OC&E Woods Line State Trail – a former rail trail creating the longest state park in Oregon.
Course off and join the A Canal Bike Path, or head beyond Olene for horseback riding, hiking, and wildlife viewing.
Attention avid hikers, lace up your boots and choose from the many state parks, wildlife refuges and national forests surrounding Pendleton. Hit the nature trail at Emigrant Springs State Park – open from April through October with an onsite Oregon Trail display – or trek down the 7.3-mile Lewis and Clark Trail at Hat Rock State Park.
This Oregon Cascades state park features the famed Canyon Trail – a year-round, seven-mile trail following Silver Creek and taking visitors past 10 glorious waterfalls in this Oregon rain forest. After your hike, take advantage of other outdoor activities like bird watching, fishing, and nature photography.
More hiking can be found in northern Oregon along the Columbia River Gorge – a National Scenic Area where the views can take your breath away. Just north of Hood River, you can journey down the 2.6-mile Starvation Creek Trail where you’ll hike past waterfalls, view of the gorge, and test yourself with the steepness of the trail.
For a more moderate walk, hike the short trail to Multnomah Falls near Troutdale, just east of the Portland metropolitan area. Find more hiking in Columbia River Gorge cities like Cascade Locks, and get ready for an adventure in outdoor Oregon.
