Why stay inside?

This is Oregon after all, and the expert staff at Oregon Wild lead outdoor adventures around the state throughout the year. Join us to experience Oregon's outdoors and learn more about the state's spectacular wild places. All hikes are FREE unless otherwise noted. Sign up for our e-mail alerts to get advance invitations to Oregon Wild hikes and events, and check out our list of suggested hikes.

Hike space is limited so pre-registration is required. Complete trip details are provided upon RSVP, but some important hiker information is listed here.
