About this item

A guidebook for hikers, bikers, and equestrians, Hiking from Portland to the Coast explores the many trails and logging roads that crisscross the northern portion of Oregon’s Coast Range. Designed to showcase convenient “looped” routes, it also describes complete throughways connecting Portland to the coastal communities of Seaside and Tillamook. Each of the 30 trails described includes a backstory to help users appreciate the history and significance of the places through which they are traveling.
While suitable hikers, equestrians, and bikers, many of these trails have never been surveyed for recreational use. Many are located on private timber holdings, where the recreational users’ rights don’t  include the use of motorized vehicles, camping, littering, making fires, or otherwise endangering standing timber. Although recreational usage is permitted on all routes, access may be curtailed at certain times where there is active logging, or when there is excessive fire danger. The maps, notes, and tips provided here will be invaluable for those adventurers who wish to wander far from the beaten track.  Less intrepid explorers will find plenty of short and scenic exploratory hikes in the forests that parallel major roadways.
