TRAVEL OREGON

VISITOR GUIDE 2021-2022


Welcome to Oregon Again After a year-plus of delayed travel plans, we’re all ready to rediscover Oregon again. With gatherings postponed, we may have gotten outside more — for meditative solo walks, sunny bike rides with the family and social-distanced snow play on the mountains. We sought out less-crowded beaches and trails to call our own, and lingered under starry skies at blissfully remote campgrounds. (Oregon has lots of those.) As hardy Oregonians, we all found our own version of joy during a time of extraordinary challenges. Many of us took up a new instrument or trail run, Zoomed with our grandparents, baked sourdough together, listened to birdsongs, dreamed of new travel plans and supported our favorite local businesses from home. Even while we have been physically apart, we have been interconnected — much like how trees in a forest are always tethered by their roots in a mycorrhizal network. Like trees, we’ve literally helped feed each other — donating hot meals to frontline workers, raising funds and delivering supplies to local relief organizations, and rallying around our multicultural communities for the health of the whole forest. As opportunities for safe travel across Oregon reopen, we welcome you back. Take in the beauty of it all — wild rivers, scenic bikeways, mountain vistas, abundant farmlands — and show your love for the people who make this place so special.

JUSTIN BAILIE

We’re proud of Oregon and hope you find renewed joy here too.

IT’S IN YOUR FUTURE

VisitBend.com


What to Expect at Oregon Destinations in 2021-22 New protocols were adopted during COVID-19, and many of them may be here to stay. When you head out to Oregon’s restaurants, hotels, indoor and outdoor attractions, and natural areas, it’s best to be prepared — for everyone’s safety and well-being.


TOP TIPS TO KEEP IN MIND

when you visit:

1. CHECK AHEAD: Confirm your destination is open. A number of places have closed, some temporarily or seasonally, or changed their hours. Give yourself peace of mind and check the location’s website or call before you go. TripCheck.com provides current road conditions.

2. MAKE RESERVATIONS: Many of Oregon’s restaurants, tasting rooms, museums and guided tours are relying on visitors to book their spot in advance. Reservations may be placed online or by phone, oftentimes with a time slot for the entirety of your visit. 3. COME PREPARED: To stop the spread of coronavirus, everyone (ages 5 and up) in Oregon has been required to wear a face covering in public spaces statewide. Learn about state and county guidelines with coronavirus.oregon.gov and get ready for the outdoors with TakeCareOutThere.org. 4. SHOW YOU CARE: As long as coronavirus is still a concern, please protect our communities by keeping 6 feet of distance between you and those outside your household. Show your support for Oregonians in other ways, too: Shop, eat and stay local.

The

OREGON WAY The year 2020 was full of twists and turns, and with each one, Oregonians have come out stronger together — thanks to the spirit of resilience that binds us all. Even in the midst of the global pandemic and an unprecedented wildfire season, individuals, businesses and organizations rallied together across urban and rural communities of the state for the betterment of their fellow Oregonians.  There’s a name for it, in fact: It’s called “The Oregon Way,” and it harkens back to the decision-making approach used by great Oregon politicians — namely, former governors Tom McCall and Bob Straub, former Sen. Mark Hatfield and Sen. Ron Wyden — who span both sides of the aisle. Sen. Wyden explained it like this in 2009: “The Oregon Way is more about taking good ideas wherever they come from, rather than one party or one philosophy.” As the state and nation strive toward a renewed era of unity, kindness and inclusiveness, here are some of the individuals and organizations that have worked to rebuild, lift each other up, and ensure Oregonians and visitors to Oregon can enjoy the state’s natural treasures for generations to come.

GRITCHELLE FALLESGON

Coordination is not really glamorous, says Burt Edwards, communications director for the nonprofit Friends of the Columbia Gorge. “But it’s really helped people think about the Gorge much more holistically.” In the three-plus years since the Eagle Creek Fire burned 50,000 acres of trails and other popular recreation sites in the Columbia River Gorge, Edwards has continued working with a large number of the individuals, businesses and organizations that banded together after the fire for an effort they branded “Show the Gorge Some Love.” Many of those people had already worked together, but this was a more focused effort — one that has lasted far beyond the initial fire event. Specifically, the groups raised funds for emergency responders and channeled scores of volunteers eager to plant trees into a longer-term effort. When several iconic trails reopened to the public, it was thanks to the 6,000-plus volunteer hours by those who pitched in. Ecologists say the population of pikas and other wildlife are thriving as the forest floor sees a rebirth. During Oregon’s 2020 wildfires, Friends of the Columbia Gorge worked with land trusts statewide to help develop similar strategies moving forward. Three years later, the Gorge is still benefiting from those relationships. “The fire underscored the stakes,” Edwards says, “and the opportunities.”

FORGING PARTNERSHIPS IN PORTLAND’S RESTAURANT INDUSTRY

For 61 years, Amalfi’s Restaurant has served pizzas, linguini, meatballs and other oldschool Italian fare to Portlanders in its intimate dining room in Northeast Portland. These days it’s become an expanded outdoor all-weather patio and market for graband-go family meals, as this food-famous city has had to adapt to new COVID-19 dining protocols. It was everything they could do to keep the lights on during the ever-changing landscape of regulations. “We’re complete chameleons,” says Kiauna Floyd, who purchased the business from her stepfather in 2006 and is the first person of color to own Amalfi’s in three generations. “The whole hospitality industry has had to make so many transitions.” While some Portland restaurants have struggled to navigate the pandemic, others have adapted to offer more outdoor seating, or switched to takeout to serve visitors who are hungrier than ever to support local businesses. With two school-age children at home, Floyd still found time to be among more than 100 Portland restaurants to partner with Frontline Foods during the spring 2020 closures to box up thousands of meals for local emergency workers. Floyd knows the stakes are high for all small-business owners: “For those of us still fighting tooth and nail to keep the doors open, we’re doing everything we can to think outside the box and expand margins whenever we can.” Find more: The Portland Region’s lauded food and drink scene is as tantalizing as ever — see how to support its diverse businesses and artisan makers on page 72.

When the fast-moving Holiday Farm Fire tore through small towns along the McKenzie River east of Eugene, firefighters worked around the clock to quell the flames. McKenzie Fire & Rescue Capt. David Sherwood was part of the team sent to protect the Goodpasture Bridge, the historic covered bridge featuring gothic architecture that dates back to 1938. “It’s iconic, not only as a feature of the McKenzie [River Valley] but also in my life,” Sherwood says. Having worked for the fire agency for 18 years, he passes the bridge every day and takes his children every year to see the structure decorated in holiday lights. Sherwood credits saving the bridge to a bit of luck and some quick thinking from the 14 fire agencies around the state that didn’t hesitate to work together. “It was a team effort,” he says. “There are a lot of professional people around here who know what to do, and who can work together to get a task done.” Originally from the Midwest, Sherwood reflects that he’s noticed Oregonians have an independent nature but are quick to step up when a need presents itself. “People are really built to serve their communities,” he says. “When things like this happen, we’re more than prepared to work together on a common cause, and I think that does speak to people in this state.”

Kristen Roslund

More than 20 years ago, Kristen Roslund and her husband opened the Overleaf Lodge & Spa in Yachats, a property perched on a bluff that offers guests astounding views of the ocean in a relaxed atmosphere. The name is one that came to symbolize turning over a new leaf in life. Never was that mantra put to the test more than in 2020, when all of Oregon’s lodging properties were forced to adapt to the statewide stay-at-home orders in spring 2020 and then the increased safety protocols to follow. Roslund was forced to let go of 60 employees, a task she says was one of the hardest things she’s ever had to do. She lessened the pain by holding a food drive for those laid off and sent them home with lots of essential supplies. Overleaf has a long history of community support, including hosting a barbecue for trail-preservation volunteers and inviting guests to help make blankets to support My Sister’s Place, a local domestic violence intervention program. Meanwhile, staff members have become nimble to navigate the new normal. “Our staff was doing double shifts; the gardener was making beds. Everybody pitched in,” she says. “When your body aches so badly and you get so tired, you have to push yourself, you have to be resilient … I suppose it’s that pioneering spirit.” Find more: With its spectacular sunsets and ocean views, the Oregon Coast has been a place for much-needed rejuvenation during wearing times.

HELPING WINE COUNTRY IN SOUTHERN OREGON

Oregon’s winemakers have long been noted for their collaboration, and the incredible response after the 2020 wildfires was no exception. Gina Bianco had just become executive director of Rogue Valley Vintners — a nonprofit effort to promote the world-class Southern Oregon wine region to visitors — when the Almeda Fire broke out in Ashland. The fire destroyed thousands of homes and one winery in the nearby community of Talent. As a former public health consultant, Bianco drew on her experience of bringing people together. She spent the next few days checking on winemakers and distributing face coverings for winery and vineyard workers, since it was harvest time and the grapes needed to be picked. She took the lead in helping area winemakers come together to provide support to those who lost everything in the fires, many of whom were winery staff or vineyard workers. Two dozen local wineries rallied together for a fundraiser called Rogue Valley Wine Country Cares, which raised more than $56,000 in less than four weeks for relief to help wildfire-affected families. “This year really turned folks upside-down — from COVID-19 to wildfires,” Bianco says. “Organizations may be competitive in everyday business, but when it comes to a situation where they need to help each other, they are right there.” Find more: Read about Southern Oregon’s acclaimed wineries, tasting rooms and tasting trails — perfectly paired with outdoor adventure — on page 110.

With more people seeking fresh air and wide-open spaces, outdoor recreation in Eastern Oregon has had a banner year. “Rather than taking the kids to Disneyland, all these people were coming out and learning how to do these things,” says Dan Sizer, owner of Go Wild American Adventures in Baker City. “I heard our clientele reiterate to me: ‘I would have never come out to Eastern Oregon if COVID hadn’t hit.’” While visitors were discovering the allure of this less-crowded part of the state, demand for outdoor gear, recreation sites and experienced guides also skyrocketed. Though Sizer’s small company had a rough few months, he quickly shifted to offering private guided backpacking excursions, as well as adding options for whittling, fly-fishing and survival-skill lessons during these multiday trips with safety protocols in mind. The best part of this new landscape, Sizer says, is that a new group of visitors has experienced Eastern Oregon and learned respect for the natural world. “Everyone who comes out here loves it; they feel like they’ve made this discovery,” he says. “Now all these people are going to be not just using the forest, understanding it and appreciating it, but also helping conserve it.”

LIFTING UP INDIGENOUS TRIBES IN CENTRAL OREGON

Born and raised on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation of Oregon, Jefferson Greene heard his elders speaking the native language, Ichishkíin Sínwit, with other elders. But he says the language wasn’t passed down to the children or grandchildren. Now with children of his own, Greene has become fluent in his native tongue and made it his mission to revitalize the language before it goes dormant. He founded the nonprofit Columbia River Institute for Indigenous Development for this purpose. “We’re down to our last 20 people who can understand it,” Greene says. “There are only 12 fluent speakers of the language. All are over 65 except two of us. COVID-19 took eight of our speakers.” During the pandemic, closed businesses meant waves of unemployment for Oregon’s Indigenous community, fewer visitors and a halt to the traditions that knit the community together. Add to that a water crisis in Warm Springs and damage from the wildfires that swept through the region. Greene knows, however, that his tribe is resilient. He painted a mural in Warm Springs titled “Shúkwat” that reflects the community’s spirit through a variety of symbols: an eagle, a horse, a light and more. “It’s about growth, learning and the journey forward,” he says.

STELLAR VIEWS

America’s deepest gorge at nearly 8,000 feet/2,438 meters, Hells Canyon has trails diving down to the Snake River, and local companies offer guided trips and expert tips. The rugged Oregon Coast Trail runs for much of the length of the state along beaches, through forests and over headlands. Trails of various lengths leave from Mt. Hood’s Timberline Lodge, including the Paradise Park loop, and Pre’s Trail in Eugene draws runners following the footsteps of track legend Steve “Pre” Prefontaine. The 455 miles/732 kilometers of Oregon’s Pacific Crest Trail reveal gentle crests and alpine forest and lakes stretching from the Siskiyou Mountains to the Bridge of the Gods. The easy 0.5-mile/0.8-kilometer Sunset Bay Beach Trail at Sunset Bay State Park leads to a sheltered cove great for beachcombing. Nearby Cape Arago and Shore Acres state parks have accessible routes with some of the Coast’s most iconic views. In the McKenzie River Valley, hike an easy 1.5-mile/2.4-kilometer loop route through lava beds to see Proxy Falls — a 226-foot/ 69-meter segmented horsetail falls, impacted by the 2020 wildfires but open to visitors spring through fall. In Eastern Oregon, Anthony Lakes Recreation Area offers moderate routes like the trails to Hoffer Lake and Black Lake (2.9 miles/4.6 kilometers and 2.4 miles/3.9 kilometers, respectively) with wildflower meadows and views of the Elkhorn Mountains.

Tucked into lush forests, the Trail of Ten Falls in Silver Falls State Park reveals a cache of beauty and 10 distinct cascades. Runners and hikers find McDowell Creek Falls in Lebanon rewarding year-round with bridges and viewing decks along 3 miles/5 kilometers of lush trails. A short, steep trail leads to the top of majestic, 620-foot/189-meter Multnomah Falls. (Plan ahead and consider taking a shuttle and visiting midweek due to limited parking.) The multitier White River Falls can be seen just a stone’s throw from the parking lot. Ten stunning waterfalls can be viewed along the North Umpqua Trail, including 102-foot/31-meter Lemolo Falls and double-drop Toketee Falls.

OUTDOOR ADVENTURES

HIKING & RUNNING

Routes on Steens Mountain reward hikers with dramatic views of the Alvord Desert, 9,738 feet/2,968 meters below. A short trail leads through the sagebrush into the horseshoe-shaped volcanic tuff mesa of Fort Rock. Scores of trails climb up to the alpine lakes, peaks and wilderness area of the Wallowa Mountains — known as Oregon’s Alps, soaring near 10,000 feet/3,048 meters. Local guides lead multiday hiking and pack-animal trips. Trails in Newberry National Volcanic Monument reveal spectacular lava flows, buttes and calderas, while Crater Lake National Park is home to the deepest lake in North America.

OUTDOOR ADVENTURES

CAMPING Oregon’s camping spots awaken your senses. You can pitch a tent under a star-bright sky or on the shores of a misty alpine lake. Feel the warmth of sunrise over the canyon rim or listen to the roar of the rolling surf at night. Choose from thousands of sites in state parks, national forests and wilderness areas. Find solitude in the backcountry or creature comforts in cabins, teepees, yurts and van camping, but note that many camping sites require reservations and services may be limited. Take care to follow campfire rules for the area you’re visiting. If you prefer a glamping experience, you can make your base camp in comfort at dozens of RV-friendly Oregon State Parks with full hookups, including Valley of the Rogue State Park in Southern Oregon, Clyde Holliday State Recreation Site in Eastern Oregon, William M. Tugman State Park on the Southern Oregon Coast and L.L. Stub Stewart State Park just west of Portland, in Buxton.

Whitewater rafting on the Deschutes River

WATER PLAY Bordered by the Pacific Ocean on the west and the Columbia River to the north — with alpine lakes perched up high, and Wild and Scenic Rivers flowing from the mountains — Oregon is a water lover’s playground. We have waves and waterways to suit thrill chasers and chill seekers alike.

STAND-UP PADDLEBOARDING

Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) has something for every level of paddler. Try a placid paddle at Emigrant Lake near Ashland or on a quiet stretch of the Willamette River at Alton Baker Park in Eugene. Hold your pose with a SUP yoga class in The Dalles or, for a high-adrenaline experience, paddle through whitewater rapids on the Deschutes River with a guide company.

KAYAKING/CANOEING

STEVE HEINRICHS / VISIT CENTRAL OREGON

Oregon’s pretty alpine lakes and placid rivers offer great options for canoeing and flat-water kayaking. In Central Oregon’s Cascade Lakes region, picturesque Sparks Lake, Devils Lake, Elk Lake and Twin Lakes are popular with boaters looking for a peaceful paddle. The marina at Wallowa Lake rents rowboats, kayaks and canoes for touring the tranquil waters under the gaze of the Wallowa Mountains. Find your favorite launch spot and paddle a section of the 187-mile/301 kilometer Willamette Water Trail, one of 33 national water trails in the United States. Always remember to wear a PFD and carry a map, and consider booking an expert guide for peace of mind and to keep you safe.

RAFTING

Hit the whitewater and let someone else take the oars. Experienced guide companies take visitors on full- and half-day excursions down big rapids and tranquil waters alike in almost every region of Oregon. Book a boat on the Upper Klamath River in Southern Oregon for some of the state’s most thrilling whitewater experiences. The Lower Deschutes River near Maupin offers family-friendly excursions and the chance to see the waterbirds and wildlife of the high desert up close. In Eastern Oregon, it’s

the Wild and Scenic Grande Ronde River that draws whitewater enthusiasts for remote multiday floats.

JET BOATS

Oregon’s jet boats were made for high-adrenaline, high-speed fun. Visitors can race up the Rogue River from Gold Beach with Jerry’s Rogue Jets and from Grants Pass with Hellgate Jetboat Excursions. Jet-boat excursions offer stunning views of the river’s canyons and resident wildlife as well as the chance to learn about the area’s natural history. In Portland, Willamette Jetboat Excursions delivers thrills, splashes and a glimpse of the lovely Willamette Falls in Oregon City, the second largest waterfall by volume in the United States. In Hells Canyon, jet-boating companies explore the Snake River winding through North America’s deepest gorge.

KITEBOARDING AND WINDSURFING

With near constant winds blowing along the Columbia River, Hood River is an internationally renowned kiteboarding and windsurfing destination, with lessons and rentals available. Closer to Portland, Sand Island Marine Park, Sauvie Island and Scappoose Bay Marina are also hot spots on the Columbia. Near Langlois on the Coast, little Floras Lake is a moderate proving ground for beginning kiteboarders and windsurfers. Enthusiasts also flock to more Pacific Ocean beaches up and down the Coast in search of big swells and rentals.

OUTDOOR ADVENTURES

BICYCLING Cyclists adore Oregon and Oregon loves them right back. Road cyclists feel the affection in the state’s official Scenic Bikeways program — the first of its kind in the nation — and famously bike-friendly cities and towns. Mountain bikers, fat-bikers and gravel riders embrace single-track trails, sandy beaches and forest back roads around the state. For more about two-wheeled adventures in Oregon, visit TravelOregon.com/Bicycling.

South Shoreline Trail at Phillips Lake

The Oregon Scenic Bikeways program includes 17 rides showcasing the most beautiful road-cycling routes in the state. On the sunny eastern side, extreme riders take on the 108-mile/ 174-kilometer Blue Mountain Century Scenic Bikeway. The Coast’s more moderate 60-mile/97-kilometer Wild Rivers Coast Scenic Bikeway includes cranberry bogs, river vistas and ocean views. A short leg of the 134-mile/215-kilometer Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway, with several routes winding through vineyards and hop farms, and the 51-mile/ 82-kilometer Tualatin Valley Scenic Bikeway, featuring the car-free Banks-Vernonia Trail, are great options for beginners. Riders find 37 miles/60 kilometers of stunning high-desert views along the moderate Sisters to Smith Rock Scenic Bikeway. Nearby, the 30-mile/48-kilometer Madras Mountain Views Scenic Bikeway presents another sunny, moderate route. The Cascade-Siskiyou Scenic Bikeway is for extreme riders only, but offers 55 miles/88 kilometers of steep and winding routes through the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument.

GRAVEL RIDES

Bumpy back roads, heart-pumping hill climbs and lung-busting byways are what gravel riders seek, and Oregon’s got all that and more. Near Yachats, the Oregon Coast Gravel Epic outlines 60and 38-mile/97- and 61-kilometer loops. The 21-mile/34-kilometer Cloud Cap out-and-back leads up a forest service road to the historic Cloud Cap Inn on Mt. Hood through a recovering forest. The Grouse Knob/Dixie Pass Gravel Grind passes through Eastern Oregon’s small towns and pasturelands along remote and beautiful miles. The 25-mile/41-kilometer Crown Zellerbach Trail in Scappoose, just north of Portland, is a great option for beginners, with miles of flat, scenic trails along old rail lines. The Cycle Oregon Gravel ride takes tires to the roads less traveled with multiple route options over two days. 22

MOUNTAIN BIKING

In Southern Oregon’s Rogue Valley, Mt. Ashland Super D is a classic for intermediate and expert riders that starts with a shuttle to the top of Mt. Ashland Ski Area and offers 5,400 vertical feet/165 meters of flowing, swooping terrain over 14 miles/23 kilometers. If it’s mountain goats and high alpine lakes you’d like to see, the hair-raising Elkhorn Crest Trail and continuing Summit Lake Trail near Baker City are the highest-elevation trails in Eastern Oregon. Hundreds of miles of high-desert single-track in the Phil’s Trail network in Bend wind through ponderosa pines, with trails suited for riders of all ability levels. The 15-mile/24-kilometer fast and fun Alpine Trail is the classic ride that put Oakridge on the map. And the brand-new Timberline Bike Park at Mt. Hood offers six lift-assisted trails, the easiest of which is a family-friendly 4.5 miles/7.2 kilometers. Those looking for an epic quest can take on parts of the 669-mile/1,077-kilometer Oregon Timber Trail, a mostly single-track trek that winds north-south through six national forests in the center of the state. On Oregon’s South Coast, the Whiskey Run Trail System weaves through the coastal landscape with loops for all skill levels.

FAT BIKING

With chubby, grippy tires, fat bikes can take on sandy beaches, snowy track and loose-dirt trails for year-round riding. The beach at Lincoln City’s Roads End State Recreation Site on the Central Coast is a fast, flat shoreline cruise. Near Lakeside on the South Coast, the John Dellenback Dunes route gives riders the challenge of loose inclines on sandy banks and ridges. On the North Coast, the moderate Fort Stevens Fat Bike Route winds past the 19th-century Peter Iredale shipwreck on its way out to the jetty. In winter fat-bikers explore the snowy trails out of Wanoga Snow Play Area Sno-Park in the Deschutes National Forest. Many bike shops have rentals, lessons and guided trips.

FISHING Oregon’s rivers, lakes and coastline draw avid fisherfolk year-round. Coast guide companies offer charters to fish for ocean-dwelling rockfish, lingcod, halibut and albacore tuna. Visitors can try for Dungeness crab in the first certified-sustainable crab fishery in the world and dig along the Coast for razor clams. Inland lakes stocked with trout offer a great introduction to fishing for kids, and experts cast for elusive steelhead from drift boats and banks on the North Umpqua, Deschutes and John Day rivers. The mighty Columbia River is the place to find returning chinook and coho salmon as well as deep-swimming sturgeon.

Fly-fIshing on the Crooked River

Oregon’s wild places are full of untamed creatures, and visitors have many options for observing their natural habits. Magnificent gray whales — measuring as long as 49 feet/15 meters — make a twice-annual appearance along the Oregon Coast during spring and winter migrations. And a few resident whales hang around the Coast yearround. Nearly 20,000 gray whales swim northward from the calving grounds in Mexico to the Bering Strait in spring and can be viewed from 24 official whale-watching points. The Coast is also the place to spot raucous sea lions and sleek seals on the rocky promontories and bays. The skies fill with birdlife in spring and fall, when more than 500 bird species migrate along the Pacific Flyway at notable birding sites like the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge, Baskett Slough National Wildlife Refuge and the Summer Lake Wildlife Area, as well as along the Coast. Once a rarity, bald eagles can now be seen year-round fishing along the banks of Oregon rivers and in winter at locations like Lake Billy Chinook and The Dalles. In winter Roosevelt elk come down from higher elevations in the Blue and Wallowa mountains to feed in the lower foothills and meadows. The largest remaining species of North American elk can also be seen year-round at Dean Creek Elk Viewing Area near Reedsport. Lucky lookers can catch a glimpse of the free-running herd of mustangs in the Kiger Gorge near Diamond. If you’re lucky enough to spot wildlife, use your zoom lens and observe from afar.

Find out where you can taste all of Oregon’s incredible ingredients for yourself.


Oregonians are unapologetically passionate about food and drink. It’s no wonder, considering the amazing natural ingredients at our disposal — from our fresh-caught salmon and wild-foraged mushrooms to hand-harvested sea salt and farm-fresh seasonal produce. Did we mention our famous hazelnuts, artisan cheeses, estate-grown wines, seasonal craft brews and ciders, and growing spirits scene? No surprise, then, that Oregon continues to draw attention for its culinary mastery, with its chefs regularly earning spots on the Emmy-winning television series “Top Chef.” (Fun fact: The show’s latest season was filmed in Portland as well as the Mt. Hood and Columbia River Gorge region, Coast region and Willamette Valley, a testament to Oregon’s place at the national table.)

Visitors can experience this passion and year-round bounty at farmers markets, U-picks, seafood counters, cooking schools and tasting rooms by following one of the many Oregon Food Trails — a hungry road-tripper’s best friend. Oregon’s restaurants saw a challenging year in the midst of closures, reopenings and new protocols to keep everyone safe. But the industry came through in a big way to give back to those in need in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. More than 100 Portland-area restaurants worked with the national nonprofit Frontline Foods to send food to nurses and doctors across the region, donating more than 10,000 meals to frontline workers at local health care facilities. When you’re dining out, consider showing your appreciation with a little extra gratuity. A bit of kindness goes a long way.

Gompers Distillery

SHOWING OUR SPIRIT Oregon’s got a reputation for spirited independence and attention to detail. Both have forged the state’s small-batch spirits revolution, nearly two decades old and stronger than ever. The Beaver State’s distilleries are turning out whiskey, vodka, gin and more in a signature style, with nearly 60 distilleries and tasting rooms around the state. Many independent-minded makers offer their own unique twists, from the smoky, rich and spicy Puerto Rican-style rum at Flooded Fox Den Distillery in Forest Grove to the gin infused with handpicked Oregon juniper berries, handpicked lavender and regionally sourced golden pear at Gompers Distillery in Redmond. Branch Point Distillery in Dayton uses local grains and traditional methods to mash, ferment, distill, mature and bottle their small-batch whiskeys on-site. Oregon Grain Growers Brand Distillery produces their signature spirits with Umatilla County grains and locally sourced ingredients in Pendleton. Sundance Distilling in Grants Pass offers seven flavors of handcrafted moonshine along with rum and whiskey — all with an adorable Sasquatch on the label. Portland’s Freeland Spirits is a rare woman-owned and operated distillery, producing exquisite gin and bourbon from local ingredients. On both Portland’s east and west sides, you’ll find Distillery Row’s visitor-friendly tasting rooms, where you can sip to your heart’s content. Check for updates on Toast, North America’s largest public craftspirits tasting, and Portland Cocktail Week in October.

Oregonians are serious about coffee. You can tell by the sheer number of cafes and by the fact that local life revolves around the roasted bean. Whether your morning starts in sunny Eastern Oregon, in a foggy coastal town or smack in the middle of Portland’s bustling commute, you’ll find a robust local cafe in the heart of things. We think a great cup of coffee is worth the fuss, which is why we’ve nurtured award-winning artisan roasters like Noble Coffee Roasting in Ashland, Heart Coffee Roasters in Portland, Seaside Coffee Roasters and Kainos Coffee Roasters in The Dalles. Oregon also has a passion for specialty teas, reflected by the likes of Smith Teamaker, The Tao of Tea and Tea Chai Té, which each offer endless varieties to choose from. The new Mamancy Tea Co. in Beaverton showcases fine teas from around the world, curated by the Kenyan-born owner, a certified tea sommelier. You can’t have tea without a cozy space for sipping; Eugene’s Oolong Bar and the glass-walled Tea Garden at the Portland Japanese Garden are favorite tranquil spots for tea lovers. Velvet Monkey Tea in McMinnville offers more than 100 varieties of black, white, green, oolong and herbal teas, and the organic farm of Minto Island Tea Company in Salem is Oregon’s first commercial tea grower.

BEER EXPERIENCE Oregon’s craft-beer scene has always been about quality, innovation and passion, and anyone who’s visited a craft brewpub in Oregon can feel the inspiration behind each brew. From double-hopped IPAs to barrel-aged porters, envelope-pushing sours and thirstquenching summer ales, Oregon’s beers are not just highly drinkable — they go on to win loads of national awards each year. But we don’t need to know the stats to know good beer. Here are some of the ways to experience Oregon’s craft beers all year round.

TASTING TRAILS

A number of official ale trails makes it easy to navigate your way through the state’s top craft breweries. The Eugene Ale Trail takes visitors to 22 regional tasting rooms with a passport program and various prizes. The Bend Ale Trail includes a tour of 23 highdesert breweries and its own special reward for designated drivers. The Salem Ale and Cider Trail hits 11 stops for great beer and cider. Oregon’s North Coast Craft Beer Trail includes 13 breweries between Astoria and Pacific City, while the Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail introduces visitors to 15 distinct cider, spirit and beer crafters. Don’t miss the Breweries in the Gorge trail, which hits 12 hoppy stops. Find at least a dozen more pubs to raise a glass to along the Eastern Oregon Brews Byway, and 14 more craft-brew standouts in Medford, Grants Pass and Ashland along the Southern Oregon Ale Trail.

BREWING COLLABORATIONS

Even during a global pandemic, Oregon’s craft brewers have continued to collaborate, innovate and grow. They’ve continued to rediscover old-world ingredients (as Oregon is famous for much more than just IPA), pitch in for the community, and reinvent flavor profiles and styles to keep fans’ thirsts quenched. In a 2020 collaboration, 27 top brewers from across the state joined forces to create a series of seasonal beers to support the Oregon Brewers Guild at a time when canceled events meant a loss of proceeds to support the industry. Their State of Excitement No. 2, a hazy IPA brewed at Portland’s Baerlic Brewing Co., and State of Excitement No. 3, a harvest IPA brewed at Redmond’s Wild Ride Brew Co., were first out of the gate, with a holiday ale to follow. Find the cans at participating breweries and bottle shops.

HOPPED UP

For those who like it extra hoppy, September brings a host of seasonal fresh-hops flavor with fresh-hops beers in cans and on tap in brewpubs in early fall. Taste craft beers brewed with just-harvested hops and learn the secrets of fresh-hop brewing.

TRIAL BY FLAVOR

Many Oregon breweries enjoy experimenting with wild-yeast beers, including Little Beast in Portland, Crux Fermentation Project in Bend, Wolves & People in Newberg and de Garde Brewing in Tillamook — all of which have lovely outdoor beer gardens or patios. Ferment Brewing Company in Hood River earned a bronze medal at the 2020 Oregon Beer Awards for its Biere de Garde, fermented with wild yeast from the slopes of Mt. Hood. In Independence, the Rogue Farms Tasting Room uses honey from their bees in their kolsch and pumpkins from their garden in their pumpkin ale. They also grow four varieties of hops that you can see on a self-guided tour. Don’t forget to say hello to the farm’s mascot, Shakespeare Snout, the pig.

BEER TOURS

One of the best ways to experience the state’s brew culture is through a guided tour, available in most regions with safety at top of mind. Many tour operators offer limited group sizes or the option to book a private party, and are following enhanced safety and hygiene protocols. You can even go by foot or bicycle in the Portland area, and enjoy that fresh air. Similar tours are also offered in Bend and smaller towns like McMinnville.

Between Seaside and Neskowin along the North Coast Food Trail, Pacific Restaurant in Tillamook is a sweet destination for an island-style lunch, with a scratch bakery on-site — don’t forget dessert. Head to The Spot, right on the docks in Garibaldi, for fresh catches. Gourmet deli items including house-smoked meats and coastal seafood are ready for your picnic basket at Neskowin Trading Company, and chef-driven dining awaits at The Riverhouse Nestucca in Pacific City. Between Lincoln City and Florence, the brand-new Central Coast Food Trail showcases a variety of coastal destinations including the hip Salt cafe, hidden in the Lincoln City Outlet Mall. Rent gear to catch your own crab at the Sustainable Living Center in Lincoln City or Depoe Bay, and find more tasty stops in the charming coastal towns of Waldport and Yachats. Along the rugged Southern Coast, the Wild Rivers Coast Food Trail stretches between Reedsport and Brookings. Sit down to a nourishing breakfast bowl at the bright and cheery Noster Kitchen in Coos Bay.


Just as with Oregon’s world-class wine and craft-beer scenes, the cider revolution is based on the bounty of the fruit of the land — and the talented makers who forge their deliciousness. This pioneering craftbeverage endeavor is rooted in the heirloom apple and pear orchards first planted by 19th-century farmers. From the Columbia River Gorge to Southern Oregon and the Willamette Valley, Oregon has seen about two dozen cideries pop up in recent years, bringing the total number to nearly 90. While most cideries are open year-round for tasting, fall is considered cider season because it’s harvest time — when fruit is at its peak. It’s worth a trip to an orchardbased tasting room such as Runcible Cider on the East Gorge Food Trail, to sip precisely where the apples are grown. Cider makers are also a diverse bunch; new to the scene is La Familia Cider in Salem, a family-owned operation built on their mother’s recipe for homemade aguas frescas. Check for updates on the annual Hood River Hard-Pressed Cider Fest in April and Oregon Cider Week in June.

EAT AND DRINK Analemma Wines

DISCOVER WINE COUNTRY The state’s wine industry has come a long way since its humble beginnings, when a few rogue dreamers planted vines in the Willamette Valley. The state’s wine scene has blossomed to more than 850 vineyards, 650 wineries and 21 distinct growing areas (also known as American Viticultural Areas, or AVAs) and is the third largest winegrape-producing state in the nation. Our talented vintners regularly earn international and national accolades. And yet that early spirit of modesty remains. Oregon wineries, often family-owned, focus on small-batch, high-quality production. Visit a tasting room and you’re likely to see the owner pouring wine or moving barrels. One thing is certain: Wherever you go in Oregon wine country, you’re sure to get a warm welcome.

WILLAMETTE VALLEY

The Willamette Valley AVA is nestled between the Coast and Cascade mountain ranges and stretches for more than 150 miles/241 kilometers from the Columbia River to the town of Cottage Grove. Most famous for world-class pinot noir, the valley produces stellar pinot gris, chardonnay and other cool-climate wines. The fertile region has nurtured nine distinct sub-AVAs in a patchwork of distinct growing areas: Chehalem Mountains, Dundee Hills, Eola-Amity Hills, McMinnville, Ribbon Ridge, Van Duzer Corridor, Yamhill-Carlton, and the brand-new Laurelwood and Tualatin Hills districts of the Tualatin Valley. Take a tasting trip through the valley to experience the world-class varietals made here. Download a map to the Willamette Valley Wine Trail, or go to OregonWineCountry.org.

Just an hour to the east of Portland, the stunning Columbia River Gorge and Mt. Hood region presents a world of wine all its own. On this verdant, 40-mile/64-kilometer swath of land within the Columbia Gorge and Columbia Valley AVAs, winemakers create more than 30 varietals at dozens of wineries. Between the soaring walls of the Gorge, the snowcapped peak of Mt. Hood and the eastern desert foothills, a daring outdoor lifestyle seems to infuse the wines themselves — bold barberas, spicy sangioveses and crisp gruner veltliners. From rustic outbuildings to Tuscan patios and Northwestern lodges, each tasting room invites you to drink in the natural landscape.


Oregon’s got a crush on chocolate. The love affair takes many forms, from handcrafted jewel-like confections and decadent drinking chocolate to fair-trade bean-to-bar artistry. Within the delectable craft-chocolate scene, you’ll find truly Oregonian combinations, like Branson’s Chocolates’ craft-beer truffles, Moonstruck Chocolates’ winery collection, and Brigittine Monks’ small-batch truffles in flavors like cherry-chocolate and amaretto. Arrowhead Chocolates in downtown Joseph has received sweet accolades from the national Good Food Awards, along with others like Creo Chocolate, Wildwood Chocolate and Batch PDX. In Eastern Oregon, don’t miss the treasures at Petits Noirs in Milton-Freewater, which pair perfectly with a glass of local vino.

SOUTHERN OREGON

Nurtured among the rugged mountains, the wild rivers and the sunny climes, Southern Oregon wines are as adventurous as the landscape. This surprisingly warm corner of the state nurtures hot-blooded wine: tempranillo, cabernet franc and albariño, along with Oregon’s signature pinot noir. Vigorous microclimates create five separate sub-AVAs — Rogue Valley, Umpqua Valley, Elkton, Illinois Valley and Applegate Valley — with more than 150 wineries. Take a little exploration of your own along the Upper Rogue, Applegate, Bear Creek or Jacksonville wine trails — each with their own unique offerings, with fewer crowds, idyllic vineyard views and a laid-back welcome. Look for updates on the Oregon Wine Experience celebration in Jacksonville in August. Visit RogueValleyWineCountry.com and UmpquaValleyWineries.org for more.

EASTERN OREGON

The sunny, rolling farmlands cradle one of the best-kept secrets of Oregon wine country: the southernmost slice of the Walla Walla Valley AVA. The Oregon wineries in the region are small in number and big on character. Milton-Freewater is home to eight tasting rooms in the Rocks District AVA, and Copper Belt Winery’s tasting room in Baker City is part of the Snake River AVA. The wines of the area illuminate the persistence and work ethic of these longtime farming communities. Try a glass of hearty cabernet sauvignon and you’ll see.

Coopers Hall Winery and Taproom offers 36 taps of wine, beer and cider, with one of the largest selections of wine on tap in the Pacific Northwest. In sunny Central Oregon, several tasting rooms cluster around downtown Bend, and to the north, Maragas Winery has staked its claim on zinfandel, cab franc, marechal foch and others. Oregon wines fly free on Alaska Airlines, which makes traveling a breeze. Visit OregonWine.org for details.

CHEESE, PLEASE

Fresh air, clean water and room to roam make Oregonians and visitors happy, but they also make great cheese. Our free-ranging goats, sheep and cows are producing some of the nation’s most delicious artisan cheese. Get a taste and you’ll understand why. From the blue cheese at Rogue Creamery — named best cheese in the world at the 2019 World Cheese Awards in Italy — to the distinctive cheddars at Face Rock Creamery, raw-milk farmstead cheese at Ferns’ Edge Goat Dairy to creamy goudas at Umapine Creamery, the styles are as varied as the regions they come from. Have a nibble at La Mariposa and Ochoa’s Queseria, two small shops that share a cheese factory in historic downtown Albany, or Boda’s Kitchen in Hood River.

Sample the beloved “squeaky” cheese at Tillamook Creamery in Tillamook, and find more fresh cheesy goodness at Blue Heron French Cheese Company, a mile/1.6 kilometers south (with friendly farm animals outside). Check out the Oregon Cheese & Food Trail with stops at the state’s 20-plus cheesemakers, as well as the farm stands, chocolatiers, bakers and specialty stores around the state. Need another excuse to eat cheese? September is Oregon Cheese Month, and Portland’s The Wedge festival in October may include the chance to order a tasting kit, allowing you to sample a variety of Oregon’s top cheeses from the comfort of your home.

CULTURE AND HERITAGE Nez Perce elder Steve Reubens rides in the Grand Entry parade for the annual Tamkaliks Celebration in Wallowa

MANY CULTURES, MANY VOICES IN OREGON Oregon’s motto is famously “She flies with her own wings,” and Oregonians embody this spirit every day — a celebrated anthem for the history, heritage and people who made this place what it is today. Our little haven in the Pacific Northwest is a place where Indigenous people have lived since time immemorial, displaced by white settlers who arrived via the Oregon Trail. It’s a place where bold women and men built pioneer communities — many of which are still thriving today — founded on their quest for natural resources. Along came Oregon statehood in 1859 and a long line of elected leaders over the next century who took bold action to make Oregon one of the cleanest, most sustainably minded states in the nation, enacting protections on public spaces for all. Despite many barriers, Oregon’s communities were becoming a place where Japanese, Chinese, Latino and European immigrants and Black Americans arrived as laborers and entrepreneurs, laying the literal foundation of the state today. In the early 4 6

T R AV ELO R EG O N .CO M

20th century, Oregonians were part of the great swell of activism that took hold of the U.S. Oregon is a place for dreamers, a place with a unique voice, a sense of humor and a drive to do things differently. It’s a place of authenticity, of intimacy, of stories, where dreams are still a real possibility.

INDIGENOUS ROOTS

For thousands of years, Oregon was Indigenous land. Local tribes fished wild rivers and great waterfalls, like the now submerged Celilo Falls on the mighty Columbia River. They scored petroglyphs in rock canyons like those at Picture Rock Pass and left behind the world’s oldest pair of footwear (9,000-year-old sandals) at Fort Rock. Proud ancestors of those first people make up nine federally recognized tribes of Oregon: the Burns Paiute Tribe; the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians; the Coquille Indian Tribe; the Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians; the Confederated Tribes

of Grand Ronde; the Klamath Tribes; the Confederated Tribes of Siletz; the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation; and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. Several of these tribes share their histories and traditions at museums and cultural centers around the state. Just outside of Pendleton, the Tamástslikt Cultural Institute illuminates the heritage of the Cayuse, Umatilla and Walla Walla tribes. Exhibits chronicle the tribes’ 10,000 years of living history, their contemporary worldview and their aspirations for the future. Some showcases have featured nationally acclaimed photography and collections of artifacts. In the Willamette Valley, permanent exhibits at the Chachalu Museum and Cultural Center highlight the history of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde. Native American artifacts are among the collections at non-Native museums around the state, including the Portland Art Museum,

LEWIS & CLARK

Oregon’s most famous visitors, Lewis and Clark, are remembered at Astoria’s Fort Clatsop, where they overwintered with their encampment in 1805-06. Two members of their expedition were vital to their success: their Shoshone interpreter, Sacagawea, and York, the enslaved Black man who hunted and gathered food, cared for the ill, and eased relationships with the Native Americans.

STATEHOOD

Oregon became the 33rd state in the Union on Feb. 14, 1859. By this time, Oregon’s secret was out and nearly half a million people embarked on the 2,170-mile/3,492-kilometer Oregon Trail. With its wide-open spaces, wild rivers and fertile farmland, the promise of Oregon drew people from all over who were looking for adventure, for work and for a place to call home. Tales of the difficult migration and the devastation of Native American tribes are told at the National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center in Baker City. In the summertime, you can walk in the remnants of the famous wagon road at the Oregon Trail Interpretive Park near La Grande. Exhibits at End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center in Oregon City educate visitors with true stories of trail pioneers.

MIGRATION AND IMMIGRATION

Non-European settlers saw Oregon as an opportunity, too. Amidst Oregon’s Black exclusion laws — which prohibited Black people from being in the state, owning property and making contracts — thousands of Black Oregonians worked as coal miners, loggers and ranch hands. Some were able to display their skills in horse racing, bull riding, wrangling and bucking as Black cowboys, competing in the Pendleton Round-Up since its beginning in 1910. The Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center in the town of Joseph tells the tale of the Black Americans who migrated from the South in the 1920s to work as loggers alongside immigrants from Greece and other European countries in what is today a ghost town. Chinese and Japanese immigrants in Oregon worked on the railroads as well as in lumber mills, on farms and in fish canneries.

Latinos are the largest minority group in Oregon, with roots tracing as far back as the 16th century, when explorers from Mexico arrived by ship on the Coast. Next came the vaqueros (horsemen and cattle herders) and mule packers, hired to help with cattle drives to the Oregon Territory. Known as Buckaroos, these Spanish cowboys settled in Harney County to work on ranches and are among the pioneers of Eastern Oregon. Latino farm workers have been essential to the state’s 4 8

The city’s annual Fiesta Mexicana celebrates the region’s diverse culture with music, dancing, food and traditions.

COUNTERCULTURE AND ACTIVISM

In the 1960s, Oregon’s free thinkers included writers and artists like Ken Kesey, best known for his quintessential “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and “Sometimes a Great Notion.” In 1964 Kesey and a group of friends known as the Merry Pranksters set out across the country in a Day-Glo school bus, connecting to other literary figures in the Beat Generation. A bronze statue of Kesey greets visitors in downtown Eugene’s Kesey Square, and a giant twostory mural shows Kesey leaning against a bookcase in downtown Springfield. Fans of the “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s

Nest” film can visit the Oregon Film Museum in Astoria and filming locations in Salem on the Oregon Film Trail. At a time when activists called for racial equality throughout the U.S. in the 1960s and 1970s, they did so in Oregon as well. Oregonians protested the closure of schools in Black neighborhoods. Protests against police brutality and the war led to the formation of the Portland chapter of the Black Panthers as well as Black student unions on college campuses. In recent decades, residents have fought back against gentrification efforts that forced many Blacks out of their neighborhoods again. Dive deeper into the movement and contributions by Black Oregonians that shaped the landscape into what it is today at the Oregon Historical Society. Some of its thought-provoking exhibits can be accessed online, including “Racing to Change: Oregon’s Civil Rights Years,” presented by the Oregon Black Pioneers. In August 1970, the weeklong Vortex festival was a free, state-sponsored, Woodstock-inspired rock concert at Milo McIver State Park in Estacada. A group of activists worked with then Gov. Tom McCall to organize the event, designed to draw the Vietnam war protesters away from the American Legion’s annual convention in Portland.

QUEER CULTURE

Portland is a hub for queer life on the West Coast, second only to San Francisco for the percentage of LGBTQ+ residents. Famous drag venue Darcelle XV Showplace in downtown Portland was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 2020 for its role in gaining acceptance for drag and gay rights. Since the 1970s, it’s been a safe place that’s anchored the LGBTQ+ community beyond the reach of any LGBTQ+ bar. That spirit of inclusivity extends to communities all around the state.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

Led by artistic director Nataki Garrett — a

Black woman who’s been described as a visionary — the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is a center for diverse storytelling, bringing to life classic and modern tales of love, sadness, strength, healing, humanity and social justice. While performances at the festival’s world-class venues are on hold, you can still see some of their stories told in an online tour de force by Black, Latino, Indigenous, Asian and queer artists. Oregon’s culture is a product of its free thinkers, so it’s no surprise that Black Lives Matter demonstrations in Portland that continued for 100-plus days drew global attention, as Oregonians rallied for a more just and equitable state and country. Organizations like Mercatus strive to elevate the voices of diverse storytellers and promote BIPOC-owned businesses; check out My People’s Market, an online marketplace of local multicultural vendors.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTIONS

While the 1960s and ’70s were a time for radical change, they were also a time for landmark environmental-conservation efforts in Oregon. Thanks to the Beach Bill’s passage in 1967, all 363 miles of Oregon’s shoreline is open for public access. It’s the reason we call it “The People’s Coast” today. Former Gov. Tom McCall spearheaded the bill, building on the work of Oswald D. West, Oregon’s governor 50 years earlier. West had signed a bill declaring that the ocean beach, from north to south, should be declared a public highway and remain forever open to the public. The other landmark law was the Bottle Bill, the nation’s first mandatory bottle-deposit law, designed to decrease litter in Oregon. The bill was enacted under McCall in 1971. More environmental protections came from Gov. Vic Atiyeh, Oregon’s governor from 1979 to 1987 and

There’s something unique about the Oregon Coast. It’s not just Highway 101 — that impossibly scenic route known officially as the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway winding its way for 363 miles/584 kilometers from Astoria to Brookings. The truly singular characteristic of the coastline is that it’s free and open to the public, thanks to the historic Oregon Beach Bill. When then Governor Tom McCall signed the bill into law in 1967, he declared, “Oregon’s coastline will remain secure for generations to come.” That means that the Coast’s beautiful state parks, elegant lighthouses, rolling sand dunes and dramatic viewpoints are here just for you, and yours, and everyone else. Indeed, that’s why they call it “The People’s Coast.”

Summer beachcombing and winter storm watching. Classic road trips and hidden getaways. Food trails, art trails and miles of hiking trails. There are so many ways to explore the rich offerings of the Coast. These trip ideas will get you started.

Grand 101 Adventure

Stretching from Astoria in the north to Brookings in the south, Highway 101 winds for 363 miles/584 kilometers of stunning ocean views, soaring cliff lines and charming coastal towns. Just driving the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway is a thrill, but it’s important to slow down and enjoy the dozens of communities, scenic pullouts and state parks along the way. We recommend at least four days to explore the region. You’ll get to know the North Coast’s wildlife areas and crabbing spots; the Central Coast’s scenic beaches; and the teeming tide pools, rugged sea stacks and hidden coves of the South Coast. More than 80 state parks are tucked in along Highway 101, with standouts like Fort Stevens State Park, Jessie M. Honeyman Memorial State Park and Shore Acres State Park. Don’t miss the scenic viewpoints at Cape Meares Lighthouse, Cape Perpetua Scenic Area and Face Rock State Scenic Viewpoint.

OREGON COAST

Hug Point

Central Coast Getaway

The Central Coast is the heart of the best things Oregon’s coastal communities have to offer. Fly a kite or search for hidden glass floats on 7 miles/11 kilometers of beaches in Lincoln City, any time of year. Siletz Bay National Wildlife Refuge harbors majestic egrets, great blue herons and more feathered friends. Visit the smallest harbor in the world, in Depoe Bay, to spy migrating gray whales. At Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area, tour the 1873 lighthouse and explore the tide pools on the beach below. In Newport, explore underwater wonders at the Oregon Coast Aquarium. Meander along a lush coastal trail in Yachats and pause for photos of the stunning Heceta Head Lighthouse in Florence on your drive south. At the Oregon Dunes Visitor Center in Reedsport, visitors can get acquainted with the wind-sculpted sandy expanse. Fuel up along the way with fresh bites and culinary experiences along the brandnew Central Coast Food Trail, which stretches from Lincoln City to Dunes City.

North Coast Escapes

Some of the North Coast’s best-kept secrets are hidden in plain sight. At Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, visitors can learn about the rich natural world of the Columbia River Estuary. Hike the 1.5-mile/2.4-kilometer Lewis and Clark River Trail to experience the diverse ecosystems. History buffs delight in the remnant of a WWII bunker tucked into the jagged cliffs above Tillamook Head. South of Cannon Beach’s iconic Haystack Rock, beachcombers will find a hidden seasonal waterfall cascading onto the beach at Hug Point. Walk the untraveled 4-mile/6-kilometer strip of the Bayocean Spit for views of the ocean, Tillamook Bay and paragliders soaring aloft. The North Coast Food Trail, between Seaside and Neskowin, is an epicurean haven with offerings like wild-yeast beers at local breweries, freshly harvested oysters at seafood markets and signature cheeses at the iconic Tillamook Creamery. Consider visiting the North Coast in winter, or try heading farther south to escape the summertime crowds. 5 6

Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor

The rugged South Coast provides access to undiscovered country. Lighthouse lovers delight in the five charming beacons located along this stretch of Highway 101 — Umpqua River, Cape Arago, Coquille River, Cape Blanco and Pelican Bay lighthouses. At Face Rock State Scenic Viewpoint, see the artist-created “Circles in the Sand” labyrinth at low tide during scheduled times throughout the year. A trail system connecting Sunset Bay, Shore Acres and Cape Arago state parks delivers stunning views. On the Wild River Coast Food Trail, relish the fresh seafood from Harbor Lights Restaurant in Reedsport and a refreshing pint from Chetco Brewing in Brookings. In Gold Beach, the majestic Rogue River meets the ocean, and quiet beaches welcome beachcombing, bird-watching and crabbing. Book a fishing charter in Brookings to cast for king salmon, lingcod and rockfish, or hike the Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor to view wind-sculpted arches and sea stacks. 5 8

Winter Wonders

While most people think of the Oregon Coast as a summer destination, a winter trip delivers unexpected treasures. The Coast’s winter temperatures are often warmer than inland climes. Some come for the storm watching from the many safe, dedicated viewpoints found along the Coast, and stay for beachcombing and fort building in the sunbreaks that follow. Winter festivals provide a host of seasonal celebrations, including the Yachats Agate Festival, Newport Seafood & Wine Festival and Astoria’s Festival of Dark Arts. Check the event websites for up-todate schedules and information. Winter provides rich opportunities for wildlife watching, including 24 designated whale-watching viewpoints to look for migrating gray whales in winter waters. The Oregon Coast Birding Trail has 173 specific spots to view migratory and overwintering birds. Winter is a great season to try your hand at clamming, crabbing and fishing from the dock at towns up and down the Coast. Whale watching in Depoe Bay

Oregon Coast Arts

With its dramatic natural landscapes and rich cultural histories, the Oregon Coast has long been a draw for artists, creators and dreamers of all stripes. Public art in communities up and down the Coast makes that creativity accessible to all. Public artworks that communicate the region’s spirit of creativity include Florence’s sea lions sculptures and the cheerful whale sculpture in Cannon Beach, as well as the “Centennial Celebration Mural” in Toledo and mosaic tile bench in Port Orford. Bandon-based nonprofit Washed Ashore builds fabulous sea-themed installations from plastic debris fished out of the ocean. Look for murals, sculptures and other colorful innovations along the Oregon Coast Public Art Trail, and snap a photo at the designated selfie spots at the “Oregon is Magic” murals in Yachats and Gold Beach.

With so many fun things to do, great places to eat, and oceanfront places to stay, Rockaway Beach on Oregon’s north coast is the place families love to visit.

Farm Stays and Food Trails

The farmers, fishers and foragers of the Coast are leading a new culinary revolution on Oregon’s western rim, and food trails and farm stays offer a taste of this rising scene. The North Coast Food Trail leads epicureans to distilleries, breweries, cooking schools and sea-to-table dining establishments from Seaside to Neskowin. The Central Coast Food Trail guides visitors to tasty artisan treats, farm-fresh produce and decadently prepared seafood from Lincoln City to Dunes City. The Wild Rivers Coast Food Trail winds from Reedsport to Bandon, Port Orford and Brookings. Delicious stops include farms for strawberries, blueberries and cranberries in season, as well as fresh catch from fish markets and some of the state’s newest craft breweries. Steep yourself in sustainable agriculture at the North Fork 53 Coastal Retreat & Tea Gardens in Nehalem, a 3-acre/1-hectare farm growing organic vegetables, herbs and the region’s first tea garden.

If we had to pick one word to capture the spirit of the Portland Region, it would be “inspired.” There’s an enthusiasm pumping through the heart of the region that demands people do what they love and do it well. You can see it in the nationally acclaimed culinary world, in the spirited makers’ enclaves, and in the thriving arts and culture scene. The breathtaking outdoor scenery that surrounds it in farms, forests, rivers and trails infuses the passionate spirit of the urban core. Wherever you go here — to wineries and waterways or one-of-a-kind boutiques and beautiful byways — prepare to feel the inspiration.

TRIP IDEAS Trendsetters, trailblazers and innovators: Portland-area pioneers are always starting something new in the worlds of fine cuisine, arts and culture. But within all that innovative urban spirit, the metro area maintains a friendly welcome. Get to know the Portland Region.

West End shopping

Downtown Portland is a vibrant hub of shopping, dining, parks and performance halls all crammed into one energetic neighborhood. Consequently, it’s one of the town’s most walkable neighborhoods with something exciting around every corner. From Pioneer Courthouse Square near the elegant 19th-century courthouse, a stroll along the Park Blocks leads past the venerable Portland Art Museum and the classic Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, one of five venues that make up Portland’5 Centers for the Arts. Farther east, Tom McCall Waterfront Park offers a path for walkers and runners along the lazy Willamette River. Powell’s City of Books, the world’s largest independent bookstore, houses a full city block of titles for browsing and frequent readings. The hip West End and Pearl District are a shopper’s paradise with scores of unique boutiques, Oregon designers and one-of-a-kind makers. 74

MICAH FISCHER

Creativity isn’t just nurtured in Portland; it’s a way of life. Southeast neighborhoods exude this innovative spirit from the kiln to the cocktail bar. Radius Community Art Studios welcomes painters, ceramicists, fashion designers and printmakers to an open studio. WildCraft Studio School offers workshops in textiles and Indigenous arts. At the DIY Bar, you’re invited to enjoy crafting and cocktails together with friends. Food-cart pods continue a tradition of playful experimentation with late-night Cartopia, family-friendly Cartlandia, Latin-focused Portland Mercado and others. Downtown, the nonprofit SCRAP PDX is a warehouse of recycled craft supplies, acting as a gold mine for makers, artists and treasure hunters alike.

Historically Black Districts of Portland

North and Northeast Portland are diverse and thriving communities with lively energy and entrepreneurial spirit. Vibrant shopping districts, these locales have also distinguished themselves as culinary hubs with dozens of hot spots clustered on Mississippi Avenue alone, including a world of international cuisine, boutiques, and casual pubs and cafes. Check out Ori Gallery, which hosts monthly exhibits spotlighting trans and queer artists of color. The area is home to a growing number of new Black-owned businesses including Drink Mamey fresh-fruit juice shop, EcoVibe home goods store, and Nacheaux, a buzzy food cart-turned-restaurant with a Mexican-Southern fusion twist. Alberta has earned the moniker of Alberta Arts District with a monthly street fair and gallery walk, plus a host of stores to delight art-minded visitors like Guardino Gallery, Monograph Bookwerks, GreenHaus Gallery and Bolt Neighborhood Fabric Boutique. Mississippi Studios and the Alberta Rose Theatre are just two area nightclubs bringing live music to the neighborhood. Learn more about these neighborhoods’ cultural heritage and identities with self-guided walking tours by the Alberta Black Heritage Markers Project and the Historic Black Williams Project.

Portland Japanese Garden 76

T R AV ELO R EG O N .CO M

In Portland you don’t have to go far to feel like you are out of the city and into the wild. Forest Park — one of the largest urban parks in the nation — offers 5,200 acres/2,104 hectares of grand old trees, meadows and wildflowers. Nearby Washington Park features a model of manicured beauty. Stroll the Portland Japanese Garden, with eight distinct authentic Japanese-style gardens, or Hoyt Arboretum, with 2,000 species of trees and 12 miles/19 kilometers of trails, and visit the International Rose Test Garden with more than 10,000 rose bushes. In Oregon City, the thundering waters of Willamette Falls create the nation’s second-largest waterfall by volume. Lake Oswego’s George Rogers Park stretches across 26 acres/11 hectares with river access, picnic areas, walking trails and the historic “Iron Furnace,” a testament to the region’s industrial past. Sherwood’s Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge is a dynamic watershed known for ample birdlife, while Mary S. Young Park in West Linn features wooded trails and a large off-leash area for canine day-trippers.

Urban Nature Retreats


More than half a million Americans traveled the Oregon Trail in search of better lives in the mid-1800s. Many of them found what they were looking for in the hamlets south and east of Portland. In Oregon City, the End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center shares the experiences of Oregon’s Indigenous tribes, Oregon’s Black pioneers and other pioneer women and men with dynamic exhibits in their own words. The community of Milwaukie is home to Bob’s Red Mill Whole Grain Store, Restaurant and Bakery, where the trailblazing founders bring natural foods to home chefs. Did you know Gresham was once the raspberry capital of the world? The town’s agricultural history is preserved at the Gresham History Museum — housed in a 1913 Carnegie Library, one of the town’s many historic buildings. Enjoy panoramic views from Hogan Butte Nature Park or walk the streets of Gresham to admire the murals and life-size bronze statues that honor the pioneering experience.

Outdoor Escapes North of Portland

Though not far from the city, the wide-open roads and small towns of Columbia County feel a world away. This recreational playground offers myriad ways to explore the outdoors. The rails-to-trails Crown Zellerbach Trail leads from the town of Scappoose up the Nehalem Divide toward Vernonia. This moderate trail through woods and meadows is great for hiking, mountain biking and gravel riding. Get out on the river at the Next Adventure-Scappoose Bay Paddling Center, where you can book rentals and tours for kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding and even SUP yoga. For cycling enthusiasts, the 21-mile/34-kilometer Banks-Vernonia State Trail offers a car-free, tree-lined route over old bridges and through bird-filled glades. With its tranquil 280 acres/113 hectares, Camp Wilkerson is beloved by day hikers, campers and equestrians alike. Picnic in the sunshine or pitch a tent and sleep out under the stars.

Kayaking on Scappoose Bay

Just west of Portland’s urban core, the communities of the Tualatin Valley give a warm rural welcome. A weekend getaway offers an immersion into wine and outdoor recreation. Take a scenic drive along the Vineyard and Valley Scenic Tour Route, which winds for 60 miles/ 97 kilometers through the burgs of Sherwood, Gaston, Banks and Helvetia past farms, orchards and vineyards. Family farms like Blooming Junction and Unger Farms show a passion for sustainable agriculture. The state’s esteemed winemaking tradition is represented by 30 local wineries and tasting rooms, and the cities of Beaverton, Hillsboro and Tigard are known for their top-notch international cuisine. Two-wheeled tourists ride the beautiful Tualatin Valley Scenic Bikeway, while paddlers find bliss along the Tualatin River National Water Trail. Adventure along the state’s newest trails at Wapato Lake National Wildlife Refuge, and cap your day at one of the many craft breweries in Tualatin Valley. 78

Oregon’s Mt. Hood Territory Main Streets Make the Willamette River Their Home Mt. Hood Territory’s main streets don’t just overlook the Willamette River — they connect you to it! Each has its own take on shopping and dining just blocks from the river, which offers recreation opportunities galore along its 187-mile Willamette River Water Trail tying them all together. MILWAUKIE MAIN STREET: New Access and Reasons to Visit Milwaukie’s Main Street has experienced a boom in restaurants, retail and access.

DOWNTOWN OREGON CITY: History Meets a Modern-day Pioneering Spirit The official end of the Oregon Trail overlooking Willamette Falls opposite of West Linn, Oregon City is steeped in Indigenous American, immigrant and industrial heritage. While you might be familiar with the 2,000-mile Oregon Trail used by immigrants in the mid-1800s making their way out West, did you know that Willamette Falls was a trading spot for Indigenous tribes and a place where they still harvest Pacific lamprey? It’s also the site of the first long distance transmission of DC, and later AC, electricity in the world. Downtown Oregon City retains this pioneering spirit. You can see it in specialty shops, including White Rabbit Gifts, an independent bookstore selling locally made gems. For treasures with stories to tell, visit The Refinery, a women’s consignment shop increasing conscious consumerism and Naïve Melody Vintage “for the love of weird,” specializing in mid-century modern and vintage pieces.

The beauty of the Mt. Hood and Columbia River Gorge region has been shaped by the geological dramas of the past. Ice age floods carved out the soaring basalt cliff line of the Gorge, and volcanic eruptions scoured the river valley at the foot of Mt. Hood. Present-day visitors will find a land of breathtaking beauty in the region’s scenic rivers, shaggy forests and picturesque family orchards along with fresh, seasonal cuisine and craft beer in its friendly small towns. Whether you’re looking for epic outdoor recreation or epicurean wonders, history and heritage or artists’ enclaves, you’ll find it here. This region is a popular one. Our advice is to get off the beaten track, discover the region’s lesser-known delights, and visit during fall, winter and spring. Whatever you do, you’re sure to be shaped forever by your visit here.

TRIP IDEAS With cascading waterfalls, scores of scenic hiking trails and world-class water play, the Mt. Hood and Columbia River Gorge region is an immersion in the senses. Sip your way along the Breweries in the Gorge ale trail, visit the farms and orchards, and take in the region’s rich history from the last ice age to early Native American civilization to Lewis and Clark and the present day.

Kiteboarding in Hood River

Out on the Water

The rivers flowing off of Mt. Hood into the mighty Columbia and Willamette rivers make the Mt. Hood and Columbia Gorge region ripe for water play. Clackamas River Outfitters in Estacada rents kayaks and stand-up paddleboards for cruising local waterways, and leads guided trips and lessons on Estacada Lake and the Clackamas River. Float On SUP in The Dalles challenges yogis with on-the-board yoga classes. Windsurfers launch into the Columbia River for the world-famous Gorge winds from the rocky beach at Rowena and from Blackberry Beach in Cascade Locks. Big Winds in Hood River is a one-stop shop for windsurfing gear, rentals and lessons as well as expert advice and insider knowledge. That town is also internationally renowned for hosting sailboat races all summer long at pretty Marine Park.

Artists’ Way

The dramatic natural landscapes of the Gorge have inspired an outpouring of expression from artists of all mediums. In Troutdale, renowned sculptors Rip and Alison Caswell capture the grace of wild creatures and human emotion in their signature bronze work. Their collection is displayed at the Troutdale Art Center, which offers the chance to see local sculptors, painters, photographers and mixed-media artists at work. Estacada is home to Artback Artists — check out their Walking Tour of the Estacada Artback Murals — and the Spiral Gallery co-op, which showcases artists’ work from around the region. At Greene Bronze in Cascade Locks, bronze artist Heather Greene runs one of the first woman-owned foundries in the U.S. The Hood River BIG ART Walking Tour is a self-guided exploration of 18 arresting outdoor installations around town, while the artist-owned gallery Art on Oak displays work made from metal, glass, ceramics, fibers and more. The Dalles Art Center offers classes and regular exhibits in all mediums, while the nearby National Neon Sign Museum preserves this signature expression of a bygone era.

Troutdale Art Center


With Lewis and Clark, the Oregon Trail, and the Historic Columbia River Highway, this region has long been a magnet for some of history’s momentous characters. Fort Dalles Museum, a remnant of an 1856 military installation, preserves stories of trail pioneers, some of whom abandoned the overland route here to float the river. The nearby Columbia Gorge Discovery Center & Museum chronicles the tale of the Lewis and Clark expedition as well as the history of Wasco County — the largest in the nation when founded in 1854. Travel through time along the 75-mile/121-kilometer Historic Columbia River Highway between The Dalles and Troutdale, the nation’s first planned scenic roadway and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In Government Camp, history buffs will appreciate the historic photos, books and objects — like a ski lift chair from 1939 — at the Mt. Hood Cultural Center & Museum, with expansive mountain views. Bigfoot fans can geek out at the new North American Bigfoot Center in Boring, with artifacts and interactive exhibits for all ages.

Sensational Sipping

There must be something in the water. The breweries, wineries and cideries of the region keep multiplying with delicious results. You can join the libation celebration with a tasting trip through the region. Don’t miss standouts like Stone Circle Cider in Estacada, Sandy’s Bunsenbrewer, Thunder Island Brewing at their new location in Cascade Locks that features stellar river views, Hood River’s Ferment Brewing and Freebridge Brewing in The Dalles. Longtime orchard towns Hood River and Mosier have squeezed a new tradition out of local heirloom apples and pears. Taste the results at Crush Cider Cafe Thunder Island Brewing and others. The area also nurtures a blossoming wine industry with tasting rooms like Boring Winery in Boring, Buddha Kat Winery in Sandy, and dozens of wineries in Hood River and The Dalles. Hood River’s Camp 1805 offers explorations in whiskey, vodka and rum.

The trails of Mt. Hood and the Columbia River Gorge draw outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world for epic mountain biking, hiking and road cycling. Experienced mountain bikers fly through the curves of the award-winning 15.7-mile/25.3kilometer Sandy Ridge Trail System, while beginner dirt surfers zip through 3.5 miles/5.6 kilometers of rolling single-track on the Easy CLIMB Trail and the new flowy Timberline Bike Park (which offers lessons and tours). Traveling by foot, skip the crowds and head to the lesser-traveled 3.7-mile/ 6-kilometer Dry Creek Falls Trail, where you can feel the brisk spray of the waterfall on your face. Milo McIver State Park, which hugs the Clackamas River, is home to 14 miles/22 kilometers of hiking trails. Local trails are especially beautiful in the fall, and they’re now more accessible with shuttle services like Mt. Hood Express and Columbia Gorge Express. Road cyclists can cruise the Riverfront Trail in The Dalles, 10 miles of paved trail along the south bank of the Columbia River. Wherever you hit the trail, remember to follow leave-no-trace guidelines and heed posted signage.

Four Seasons on Mt. Hood

Oregon’s tallest peak is beloved for its winter wonders, but the Mt. Hood region offers a bonanza of outdoor fun year-round. Anglers look forward to the spring chinook salmon run on the nearby Columbia River, and visitors enjoy viewing the baby salmon (fry and fingerlings) at the Wildwood Recreation Site’s Cascade Streamwatch, accessible via a short paved trail. Summer is mountain bike time at Mt. Hood Adventure Park at Skibowl with lift-assist downhill mountain biking, free riding and cross-country mountain bike trails, as well as bungee jumping, the region’s only alpine slide and other high-adrenaline activities for kids. Spend the night in a yome (yurt/dome) at Promontory Park. Fall is the time to hike through colorful foliage and forage for huckleberries and wild mushrooms. Winter is for powderhounds at the five ski resorts — Timberline Lodge & Ski Area, Mt. Hood Meadows Ski and Snowboard Resort, Mt. Hood Skibowl, Summit Ski Area, and Cooper Spur Mountain Resort — as well as snowshoeing along White River and Nordic skiing at resorts and sno-parks.

Farms and Fields

Lavender Valley farm 92

Long after the ice age floods scoured this area, farms sprang up in the rich sediment left behind. Visitors can experience the resulting agricultural tradition at area farms, fruit stands and food trails. The Hood River County Fruit Loop circles the valley with 29 stops at orchards, lavender farms, wineries, U-pick blueberry patches and more. Stop at The Gorge White House for a stunning flower garden, and stay for a wine or cider tasting and garden-fresh bite from the food cart. The East Gorge Food Trail takes gastronomes on a tour of the best cideries, cherry orchards, wineries and farms in the region. Among them, stop at Analemma Wines, Garnier Vineyards or Idiot’s Grace for wines made from grapes grown in the area’s sunny vineyards. In Corbett fill your berry bucket at Klock Farm and Wills Berry Hill, and check out farm stays and farmer-for-a-day opportunities at Old McDonald’s Farm.

Tucked between the steep Cascade Mountains and the rolling Coast Range, the Willamette Valley stretches 112 miles/180 kilometers south of Portland. For generations,5the Kalapuya and other 101 Indigenous peoples fished the Willamette River and foraged for berries along its banks, leaving traditions carried on today by the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde. Since settlers started arriving 30 on the Oregon Trail in the4719th century, innovative Oregonians have 202 built historic covered bridges that continue to connect communities. They’ve put down roots in what’s become Oregon’s famous wine country and launched a farm-to-table dining revolution from its fertile soils. Come for a visit and share the culture, heritage and rich 84 bounty of the region.

WILLAMETTE VALLEY

TRIP IDEAS It was the Willamette Valley’s first pinot noir grapes that put the region on the map in the 1970s, and the resulting wine culture has kept it there. But there’s more to the valley than vineyards. The natural beauty of its mountains and rivers, along with a vibrant arts scene, offers visitors much more to explore.

Larwood Covered Bridge

Beautiful Byways

Back roads and byways of the Willamette Valley delight sightseers, shutterbugs and history buffs alike. Take a drive through history along the Linn County Covered Bridge Tour, where a cluster of five historic bridges are set against picturesque backdrops, especially colorful during fall foliage. Dramatic McKenzie Pass-Santiam Pass Scenic Byway climbs for 82 miles/132 kilometers through lava fields, alpine lakes and fir forests. The 34-mile/55-kilometer McKenzie River Scenic Byway follows the banks of that river east of Eugene, while the 72-mile/115-kilometer Marys Peak to Pacific Scenic Byway winds from Corvallis to the Coast. The 60-mile/97-kilometer Aufderheide Scenic Byway hugs the crystalline waters of the Willamette and McKenzie rivers. Stop along the 55-mile/89-kilometer Silver Falls Tour Route for waterfall hikes and mountain views. The breathtaking Over the River and Through the Woods Scenic Byway charts you 60 miles/106 kilometers through the valley into the forests and rivers of the Cascade Mountains, including stops for fishing, swimming, hiking and seeing plenty of wildlife along the way.

The spectacular single-track trails, scenic back roads and family-friendly bike paths make the Willamette Valley a dream destination for cyclists. Oakridge harbors hundreds of miles of mountain biking trails for intermediate to advanced levels. Experienced riders bomb down the epic 25.4-mile/40.9-kilometer McKenzie River Trail. Road cyclists pedal two of Oregon’s 17 official state scenic bikeways. The mild 36-mile/58-kilometer Covered Bridges Scenic Bikeway winds past six of the region’s historic covered bridges and includes the car-free Row River Trail. Riders can take on all or part of the moderate 134-mile/216-kilometer Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway through agrarian fields and charming small towns. Hardy gravel riders grind out the challenging Wings, Wine and Wonder route, winding 54 miles/87 kilometers through farms and vineyards northwest of Salem. Just south in Falls City, Black Rock Mountain Bike Area is a top spot for cyclists to catch some air through a fern-covered forest. As you head southwest of Corvallis, Marys Peak and Alsea Falls Recreation Site are favorite mountain bike spots for cyclists in the know. Meanwhile, you can tour Silver Falls State Park via the 6-mile/10-kilometer Catamount Loop Trail, featuring exciting turns, berms and rock features. If you’re traveling without wheels, many local shops rent bikes.

World famous for its pinot noir but also rich in pinot gris, chardonnay and riesling, Willamette Valley wine country offers an astonishing number of choices and an always friendly welcome. With more than 850 vineyards and 650 wineries to sample from, it’s lucky that the wine scene here is a year-round affair. Springtime brings mild weather and cherry blossoms, a fantastic time to explore the wineries’ new releases. Summertime’s warm days and nights are ideal for taking in patio views. Things get cozy in fall with harvest season and Thanksgiving specials, with wineries inviting visitors to snuggle up with blankets, heaters and fire pits on their outdoor patio spaces. Winter is known as cellar season, with intimate settings to sit, sip and get to know the winemakers. For ongoing events, visit OregonWineCountry.org.

The north valley’s smaller highways and mellow back roads guide visitors on a charming tour of world-class wine experiences. Start by exploring the vineyards of Newberg, Dundee, Carlton and Yamhill, where you can drill down into the Willamette Valley AVA’s distinct subregions including Dundee Hills, Ribbon Ridge, Yamhill-Carlton and McMinnville. Don’t miss the other libations along the way. In the town of Independence, stop at Rogue Farms Chatoe Tasting Room, and then float across the Willamette River on the cableoperated ferry in the town of Buena Vista. You can sip your way down the Eugene Ale Trail, which includes hoppy stops at 23 craft breweries, including Good Food Award champ Ninkasi Brewing Company and World Beer Cup winner Oakshire Brewing. The Salem Ale and Cider Trail includes more than a dozen craft alehouses and cideries to explore. Corvallis unites all tasting traditions with hot spots including Block 15 Brewing, 4 Spirits Distillery and 2 Towns Ciderhouse, among many others. Find more thirst-quenching beverages along the Canby Farm Loop and Molalla Farm Loop. 1 00 T R AV ELO R EG O N .CO M

Rich volcanic soils and a steady diet of winter rainfall make way for some of the nation’s top crops. Visitors can enjoy a trio of self-guided food trails to share in the bounty. Along the Great Oaks Food Trail west of Salem, you’ll find family farms committed to sustainability and restoring the native white oak savannah. Stop into markets and eateries that highlight a treasure trove of local ingredients, including honeys, jams, cheeses and ciders. When it comes to farm-to-table restaurant experiences, the towns along the Mid-Willamette Valley Food Trail are some of the state’s best-kept secrets. May to October is the perfect time to collect (and devour) fresh produce, including blueberries, hazelnuts and pumpkins. The area surrounding Eugene is home to the new South Willamette Valley Food Trail, a handy blueprint to the region’s family-friendly U-pick farms, craft breweries, artisan chocolates and more.

Central Valley History Tour

A quick jaunt off the interstate, the friendly towns of the central valley feel like a step back in time. The Salem area is home to 15 significant heritage sites including the Hallie Ford Museum of Art, the Old Aurora Colony Museum and Willamette Heritage Center. In Albany, catch a movie at the restored historic Pix Theatre, and tour the Albany Historic Carousel & Museum to view a collection of hand-carved and painted magical creatures. In nearby Brownsville, a walking tour guides visitors to more than 30 historic sites from the feature film “Stand By Me.” The Linn County Historical Museum teaches a history lesson about the town’s early days as a pioneer settlement. At the Thompson’s Mills State Heritage Site, check out a 150-year-old water-powered grain mill. In Lebanon, where the historic Santiam Wagon Road brought settlers from the 1860s to the 1930s, visitors come for the annual strawberry festival and rides on the antique Santiam Excursion Trains.

20x21 EUG Mural Project

The towns around the Willamette Valley reflect the region’s artistic spirit. Silverton, near Salem, boasts several murals celebrating the town’s history. More than 20 murals cover buildings around Corvallis, and Woodburn celebrates its history and diversity with colorful paintings. In preparation for the 2021 U.S. Olympic Team Trials and 2022 World Athletic Championships in track and field, Eugene is filled with public art all over town. The 20x21 EUG Mural Project showcases the work of more than 20 international artists, including the arresting work of Eugene artist Ila Rose — a two-sided, 40-foot/12-meter painting of a woman with snakeadorned hair. Nearby Springfield offers a self-guided tour of more than 20 vibrant outdoor murals — including one that honors Springfield High School graduate and author Ken Kesey. Just south of Springfield, Cottage Grove immortalizes the likes of local child prodigy and nature writer Opal Whiteley, as well as 1920s movie star Buster Keaton, with murals of their own. 1 02 T R AV ELO R EG O N .CO M

SOUTHERN OREGON DRONE

Table Rock


Southern Oregon is home to a tremendous cache of natural treasures — underground marble caverns in one of the West’s largest cave systems, the nation’s deepest lake in the caldera of an ancient volcano, and miles of rushing Wild and Scenic Rivers. The region is also home to human-made gems like the highly 126 5 126 regarded Oregon Shakespeare Festival, an acclaimed winemaking tradition, and a culinary and craft97 36 beverage scene to cherish. There’s richness here everywhere you wander. 126 20 Reedsport

SOUTHERN OREGON

TRIP IDEAS Southern Oregon is a land of high drama. From the stages of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival to the scene of ancient lava flows and a starring role in the craft-beverage scene, you never know what you’ll find in the next act. Find your own inspiration along this spectacular Oregon road trip. Plaikni Falls

The Cleetwood Cove Trail provides access to the lake.

Rim Drive

Four Seasons at Crater Lake

Just standing on the rim of this 7,700-year-old caldera and looking down into the lapis lazuli waters of Crater Lake is the experience of a lifetime. But this 183,000-acre/74,057-hectare national park offers year-round opportunities for exploring. In spring look for the snowmelt to increase Vidae Falls and an explosion of wildflowers as you drive along the scenic Rim Road. Summer is the season for guided boat tours and visits to the tree-studded cinder cone of Wizard Island. You can leave the car at home and ride the Crater Lake Trolley from Klamath Falls. Book a campsite and watch the sunset over the crater rim. Crisp fall days are perfect for hiking more than a dozen trails within the park, including the Pinnacles — an easy, ADA-accessible 1-mile/1.6-kilometer jaunt to the fantastical fumaroles — and the strenuous Mt. Scott hike, 5 miles/8 kilometers with panoramic views. In winter take a free ranger-led snowshoe tour or cross-country ski through the magical landscape and look for the footprints of fleet-footed wild creatures. When you visit, expect limited staff and services, and make sure to follow posted rules, including sticking to the trails and only parking in designated areas. 112 T R AV ELO R EG O N .CO M

Libation Celebration

Maybe it’s the proximity of the Wild and Scenic Rogue River or the nearness of the deep woods of nearby national forests. Something has inspired an untamed tradition of winemaking and brewing in and around the Rogue Valley. Ashland is home to national and international award-winning Caldera Brewing Company, and Medford alone offers six stops along the Southern Oregon Ale Trail. For wine lovers, the Southern Oregon AVA includes five distinct sub-AVAs — Elkton, Red Hill Douglas County, Umpqua Valley, Rogue Valley and Applegate Valley — with a diverse range of delicious wines. Wine-tasting rooms near Medford feature the bold reds and crisp whites of the Rogue Valley wine region. The Bear Creek Wine Trail leads visitors to 10 distinct tasting rooms in Ashland, Jacksonville and Medford. Winding its way out of Grants Pass toward historic Jacksonville, the Applegate Wine Trail leads visitors to delightful tastes at 18 award-winning wineries, including producers of big-flavored syrah, grenache and tempranillo.

Gateway to the Rogue

The Grants Pass area is a region of natural wonders with its roaring Rogue River, ancient marble caves and towering Siskiyou Mountains. Grants Pass is the point of departure for Hellgate Jetboat Excursions, which offers exhilarating rides up the Wild and Scenic Rogue River into the awe-inspiring Hellgate Canyon and meals at old-fashioned riverside lodges. For a hands-on, high-adrenaline whitewater-rafting experience, book a trip down the Rogue with one of the area’s experienced guide companies. Explore the marbled halls of the Oregon Caves National Monument and Preserve just east of Cave Junction. You can explore the preserve’s 4,554 acres/1,843 hectares, home to six hiking trails. Also near Cave Junction, find Out ’n’ About Treehouse Treesort with zip-line tours and the chance to sleep high in the branches of a tree. 114 T R AV ELO R EG O N .CO M

Umpqua Valley Exploration

The deep river canyons and towering forests make the Umpqua Valley a land of undiscovered beauty and untold stories. The North Umpqua section of the RogueUmpqua Scenic Byway leads to the picturesque fishing towns of Glide, Idleyld Park and Steamboat. You’ll also find access to stunning natural beauty like the Colliding Rivers Viewpoint, Rock Creek Fish Hatchery and multiple trailheads accessing the gorgeous North Umpqua Trail — 79 miles/127 kilometers of hiking, waterfalls, mountain biking and fishing. The Umpqua Valley wine region is home to more than two dozen world-class tasting rooms and vineyards spread among the towns of Elkton, Oakland, Winston and Roseburg. The small town of Roseburg is big on history with its Blast Tour — chronicling a dynamite explosion that leveled eight city blocks — as well as the Douglas County Museum. Winston is home to the 600-acre drive-through Wildlife Safari. Visit Oakland for a tour of more than 90 historic buildings, antique shops and pioneer cemeteries, and follow the self-guided Great Umpqua Food Trail for dozens of fresh food-based experiences along the way.

Outdoor Play in the Klamath Basin

With almost 300 days of sunshine per year, the outdoor playground of the Klamath Basin has recreational options galore. Bird spotters stop at the Upper and Lower Klamath lakes for a gander at resident birds and migrators along the Pacific Flyway like eagles, raptors and showy western tanagers. The Running Y Ranch Resort has an 18-hole Arnold Palmer-designed course for golfers, while the Upper Klamath Canoe Trail leads boaters on a scenic 9.5-mile/15.3-kilometer paddle through a freshwater marsh teeming with wildlife. Mountain bikers climb and descend a thrilling 35 miles/56 kilometers of trail at Spence Mountain. Fly-fishing folk cast from the banks and shallows of Williamson River and Klamath Lake. For an old-fashioned family lake trip, you can’t beat Lake of the Woods. Choose from fishing, boating, swimming and hanging out at cozy cabins set on a picturesque lake with views of majestic Mt. McLoughlin. When you’re out recreating in these pristine areas, take a moment to pay your respect to the local Klamath tribes, and take care of the land as if it were your own.

Arnold Palmer-designed golf course at the Running Y Ranch Resort

“All the world’s a stage,” the Bard said, and that’s certainly the case in and around Ashland, where drama lovers gather for world-class live theater throughout the year. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) takes a starring role in the region’s dramatic undertakings with award-winning plays on three stages, including the beloved outdoor Allen Elizabethan Theatre located in the town’s wondrous Lithia Park, which is magical in any season. The English playwright’s influence extends beyond the stage. For example, you can ski down the Sonnet, Upper Tempest and Lower Romeo trails at Mt. Ashland Ski Area. Many locally owned businesses have also taken a page from Shakespeare. In the city center, you’ll find All’s Well Herb & Vitamin Shoppe and Oberon’s Pub, a bar and restaurant inspired by “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” where you might feel as though you’ve walked onto a stage.

Fremont-Winema National Forest

Southern Oregon’s Outback

There’s off the beaten path and then there’s the true outback. The geology of Southern Oregon makes for a dramatic road trip into wild country. Tucked into the ridgeline above the Warner Valley, the Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge provides a haven for the region’s pronghorn population and more than 300 other wild species, including bighorn sheep and sage grouse. Visit the approximately 271,000-acre/110,000-hectare refuge for bird-watching and wildlife spotting in rugged canyons and wetlands. Rising 200 feet/61 meters above the desert floor, the distinctive horseshoe tuft ring of Fort Rock is all that remains of an old volcano. Hike amid the ancient palisades to see the terracing left by waters of a long-ago lake. Nearby Lakeview is the gateway to high-desert mountain biking, hiking and fishing in the Fremont-Winema National Forest and birding in Goose Lake State Recreation Area. Summer Lake Wildlife Area is also a great place to spot birds migrating along the Pacific Flyway, and Summer Lake Hot Springs offers a wonderful outdoor soak.

BEND

The sunny, high-desert landscape of Central Oregon brings happiness in myriad ways. There’s the sandy, rolling single-track beloved by mountain bikers and the bluebird skiing that draws powderhounds to the slopes of Mt. Bachelor. Old West enthusiasts come for smalltown rodeo and historic sites, while beer lovers converge for the craft beer created from the clean river water and locally grown hops. Natural-history buffs explore a land of lava and wild creatures. There are so many ways to love Central Oregon. The hard part is picking where to start. So take a deep breath of the crisp, sagebrush-scented air and jump in.

CENTRAL OREGON

TRIP IDEAS Central Oregon is a land of old volcanoes and ancient lava, of high-desert sagebrush and wide-open spaces. This sunny country is chock-full of Wild West history and new West traditions. From craft-beer brewing to biking and big mountain terrain, Central Oregon offers a full-on experience.

Western Charm in Sisters

When they saw the lush grasslands around Sisters, westward pioneers hollered “Whoa!” and put down stakes. Today the small town perched in the Cascades retains its Western heritage with many working ranches. Visitors can find regional flavor at downtown shops styled to look like Western storefronts, as well as local watering holes like the Sisters Saloon & Ranch Grill. At the annual Sisters Rodeo, spectators are treated to a skillful display of roping, riding, broncing and barrel racing from the best cowboys and cowgirls in the West. Saddle up for a guided trail ride at a local dude ranch, many of which offer lodging and resort services. Nearby Camp Sherman started as a summertime getaway for late 19th-century urbanites. Today the little Metolius River community carries on that tradition of outdoor recreation with hiking, fly-fishing or just kicking back at a riverside cabin. 12 6 T R AV ELO R EG O N .CO M

FROM TOP: STEVE HEINRICHS / VISIT CENTRAL OREGON; BLACK BUTTE RANCH

North from Bend, the high-desert hamlets of Redmond, Terrebonne and Prineville offer their own take on two Central Oregon traditions: mountain biking and craft beer. Redmond keeps pace with the Oregon brew scene with the likes of Wild Ride Brew Co., Initiative Brewing, Cascade Lakes Brewing Co., Kobold Brewing/The Vault Taphouse and Porter Brewing Co. Just outside of town, mountain biking trails in Redmond’s Maston network offer 18 miles/29 kilometers of green-rated trail. Terrebonne, known as the gateway to rock-climbing paradise Smith Rock, also gives access to the park’s 10 miles/16 kilometers of mostly blue-rated mountain biking trails. Nearby Terrebonne Depot serves up local craft beer and their signature South of Central Oregon burger, a great way to cap off a day of adventuring. Set at the foothills of the Ochoco Mountains, Prineville is a treasure trove of single-track with favorites like 8.8-mile/14-kilometer, intermediate Round Mountain Trail. Sip a post-ride pint at Crooked River Brewing.


Urban Bliss in Bend

Set amid the rural beauty of the high-desert plains and soaring Cascade mountain peaks, the urban-leaning outpost of Bend offers fine cuisine, one-of-a-kind boutiques and a vibrant nightlife. Browse downtown shops like Clementine Urban Mercantile and Lone Crow Bungalow for rustic home decor. The Old Ironworks District is a creative enclave of working artists’ studios and handcrafted wares, and the Old Mill District offers scores of national-brand shops. Taste the beer that helped launch Oregon’s craft-beer revolution at Deschutes Brewery, just one of 22 stops along the Bend Ale Trail. Grabbing a pint at one of these awardwinning breweries is the perfect way to end a day spent on the water. With the Deschutes River running right through town, Bend is an ideal launch point for a summertime inner-tubing, kayaking or whitewater-rafting excursion.

Cascade Lakes and Deschutes National Forest

It’s easy to see why outdoor recreationists flock to the high alpine Cascade Lakes and the lush Deschutes National Forest. The hard part is choosing where to play. Comprising a total of 1.8 million acres/728,434 hectares, the Deschutes National Forest holds some of the region’s most scenic hiking trails, like the strenuous 23-mile/ 37-kilometer Broken Top Trail, a favorite for backpackers that encircles the distinctive 9,175-foot/2,797-meter peak. The family-friendly Todd Lake Loop Trail passes picturesque meadows and gains awe-inspiring views of Mt. Bachelor in an easy, 1.8-mile/2.9-kilometer route. A 7.7-mile/12.4-kilometer lollipop to Swampy Lakes offers a moderate day hike through wildflower fields and past cascading waterfalls. Fly-fishers cast for trout and bass at Davis Lake, Lava Lake and Hosmer Lake, and paddlers rent canoes at peaceful Elk Lake or Cultus Lake. Drive the entire 66-mile/ 106-kilometer Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway for breathtaking views of soaring Cascade peaks, placid lake waters and wildflower-strewn glades.

Newberry National Volcanic Monument

In the Land of Lava

The scarred landscape here tells a tale of volcanic eruptions, basalt flows, obsidian deposits and sunken calderas, and it’s a story that never gets old. A study of the region’s volcanic past starts at Lava Lands Visitor Center, the information hub of the 54,000-acre/21,853-hectare Newberry National Volcanic Monument. Exhibits recount geological history, and an interpretive trail illuminates the molten landscape. Shuttle or hike up to the Lava Butte Lookout for epic views from the ancient cinder cone. There’s more to explore with camping at picturesque Paulina Lake and fishing at its sister East Lake. Geological lessons continue at the High Desert Museum, where compelling exhibits chronicle the lives of birds and wild creatures living in the lava landscape. Tucked in along the Deschutes River and in the Deschutes National Forest, various mountain resorts offer myriad ways to play in the ancient lands, from lolling by sunny pools to biking paved paths amid the lava flows and taking snowy horse-drawn sleigh rides.

Summer on Mt. Bachelor

The 9,065-foot/2,763-meter peak of Mt. Bachelor has earned itself a reputation as a winter wonderland, but it’s a paradise of play in summertime, too. When the snow melts, Mt. Bachelor Bike Park is the destination for riders bombing down 13 miles/21 kilometers of lift-serviced downhill trails. The resort offers Gravity Camp for kids and teens, as well as a skills park for beginning bikers. The cross-country-style Bachy Trail links up with dozens of trailheads for miles of mountain biking. Hikers ride the lifts on sunny days to bag the summit for epic views of the Cascade Range and highdesert plains. The 18-hole Professional Disc Golf Association course offers disc golfers a high-altitude challenge as they putt their way down the mountain. A new three-stage zip line drops along the volcano’s slopes for a speedy adventure — with dual lines allowing for some friendly competition to the bottom.

Winter Adventures

High Cascade peaks draw the frosty marine air off the Pacific Ocean for a marriage that results in champagne powder, and that’s the perfect foundation for winter fun. Ski or board the steeps, deeps and trees of Mt. Bachelor ski area’s 101 runs, where 3,365 feet/1,026 meters of vertical drop on 4,300 acres/1,740 hectares of skiable terrain make up one of the six biggest ski areas in the nation. Bachelor’s Snowblast Tubing Park is a thrilling, 800-foot/244-meter ride down six speedy lanes, and the mountain offers the longest groomed Nordic skiing season in the U.S. with trails open from mid-November into May. The nearby Meissner Nordic trail system offers 25 miles/40 kilometers of groomed trail for classic and skate skiing. Hoodoo Ski Area offers 34 runs and five lifts, a tubing run and Nordic trails. Sno-parks around the region provide backcountry access, snowshoeing and designated dog-friendly snow trails. Fat-tire fanatics may check out local shops for lessons and rentals for snow-biking bliss.

Calling all adventurers: Rugged Eastern Oregon country invites you to come and play. With the soaring peaks of the Wallowa Mountains, hidden river gorges, the deep chasm of Hells Canyon and magical formations of the John Day Fossil Beds, it’s a destination with natural splendor that’s ripe for exploring. There’s plenty of human history to discover here too — Old West rodeos, Native American cultural traditions and unexpected intersections of European, African American and Asian cultures. In the far southeastern corner of the state, the wild Owyhee Canyonlands offer the ultimate solitude. Your bold journey begins here. 395

TRIP IDEAS Out here the mountains climb high and the rivers run free. The wide-open spaces brim with hidden canyons, soaring buttes and wildflower-laden meadows. The rural communities preserve their old ways of farming and rodeoing while inspiring new traditions in art and culture. You never know what you’ll discover in Eastern Oregon.

Wallowa Lake

Some call the Wallowa Mountains “Oregon’s Alps,” and the soaring peaks draw visitors to hike, camp and paddle the placid waters of Wallowa Lake. But the region offers much more to explore. The Wallowa Lake Tramway gives visitors a bird’s-eye view of the Eagle Cap Wilderness area, connecting passengers to a 2.5-mile/4-kilometer trail system with jaw-dropping views of mountain summits and the sweeping valley below. Visitors can experience the art inspired by the rural spirit here along the Northeast Oregon Arts Trail, which includes dozens of galleries, art centers and theaters, such as the Crossroads Carnegie Art Center, the Josephy Center for Arts and Culture, and Arts Center East. The less-traveled winter season offers myriad ways to explore the snowy landscape, including skiing at family-friendly Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort, watching the Eagle Cap Extreme Sled Dog Race and climbing aboard the Sumpter Valley Railroad for festive holiday rides on the rails. 13 6 T R AV ELO R EG O N .CO M

Wondrous Wallowa Wanderings


The Wild West spirit is alive and kicking in Pendleton, where working farms and ranches carry on a long-standing tradition of living off the land. Wannabe buckaroos get a feel for cowboy life at the annual Pendleton Round-Up — a weeklong hoedown of roping, riding and wrangling as well as Native American song, dance and celebration. Year-round, visitors can see memorabilia at the Pendleton Round-Up and Happy Canyon Hall of Fame. The Tamástslikt Cultural Institute chronicles thousands of years of history of the Cayuse, Umatilla and Walla Walla tribes, whose devastation was an unfortunate part of our Western legacy. Pendleton is full of friendly watering holes including Prodigal Son Brewery and Pub and Oregon Grain Growers Brand Distillery, the area’s first craft distillery creating whiskey and vodka from local grain. The Pendleton Center for the Arts showcases the work of emerging local artists, and around town, artisans carry on longtime traditions of handcrafting Western saddles, boots and hats. The 30-mile/48-kilometer Whisky & Rocks Farm Trail connects Pendleton with wine-rich Milton-Freewater, showcasing award-winning winemakers, distillers, brewers, farmers, cheesemakers and chocolatiers.

Blue Mountains and Baker City

With a high point at more than 9,000 feet/ 2,743 meters, the snowy Blue Mountains stand sentinel over the small rural outposts of Eastern Oregon. Prairie City nestles into the mountain’s west side, a gateway for fishing in the Middle Fork of the John Day River and wintertime Nordic skiing and snowmobiling. Stay at the historic Hotel Prairie, and belly up to the bar at the Oxbow Restaurant and Saloon. On the mountains’ eastern side, Unity draws anglers year-round to the Unity Reservoir. Stop for home cooking at the Water Hole Cafe & Mercantile. Visitors to Baker City will find a vibrant and award-winning downtown, including the lovingly restored Geiser Grand Hotel, Barley Brown’s Beer and Glacier45 Distillery. Peterson’s Gallery and Chocolatier, Sweet Wife Baking and The Cheese Fairy offers some of the best artisan cheeses around.. Just north of Downtown Baker City, the Union County Farm Trail takes visitors along 55 miles/89 kilometers of farms, markets, museums and dairies for a tasty hands-on tour. The Mount Emily Recreation Area boasts more than 80 miles/129 kilometers of trails, which will warrant a lunch stop at Ten Depot Street, located inside a historic brick building in La Grande. Peterson’s Gallery and Chocolatier

Painted Hills and John Day River

The dramatic sunset hues of the Painted Hills, a unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, can steal the show, but they are often upstaged by a visit to the Thomas Condon Paleontology Center, with one of the largest fossil records in the world, stretching back 55 million years. The green claystone hues of the adjacent Sheep Rock unit aren’t too shabby either. Hiking trails in the Clarno unit provide close-ups of plant fossils, petrified logs and soaring palisades. Continue an exploration of ancient landscapes in nearby and aptly named Fossil, where the Oregon Paleo Lands Institute has day hikes and exhibits illustrating geological history, as well as an open fossil dig at the Wheeler High School Fossil Beds. To the west, the captivating John Day River — the third-longest free-flowing river in the contiguous United States — winds its way north all the way to the Columbia River. 13 8 T R AV ELO R EG O N .CO M

Painted Hills


Oregon’s easternmost outpost of Ontario feels like it’s the end of the line, but it’s actually the gateway to a world of hidden wonders. Fuel up at a downtown cafe on small-batchroasted java, savory sandwiches and fresh-baked treats. From here, drive south to find Lake Owyhee State Park. The picturesque lake, nestled into a basalt canyon, is a tranquil spot for camping and fishing. At the southeastern end of the lake, trailheads lead experienced hikers to untracked trails like 28.7-mile/46.2-kilometer Succor Creek/Leslie Gulch and 3.3-mile/5.3-kilometer Juniper Gulch — offering solitude and epic views of the Jordan Valley. To experience a world of rare beauty, book a multiday trip to raft the Middle Fork of the Owyhee River. This river route reveals one of the most remote areas in the contiguous United States amid the sheer walls of a wilderness canyon teeming with wildlife.

Steens Mountain

Wild Southeast Beauty

Rising almost 10,000 feet/3,048 meters above the sagebrush landscape, Steens Mountain — the largest fault block in North America — rewards explorers. Hike the 13.2-mile/21.2-kilometer Big Indian Gorge for otherworldly views of the buttes, canyons and wildflower meadows. A drive along the Steens Loop Tour Route offers epic views of the desert floor on the highest road in Oregon. From the Kiger Gorge Overlook, peer down into the half-mile/0.8-kilometer-deep chasm and try to glimpse the wild mustangs that run free here. Don’t miss a stop at the nearby Alvord Desert, a 10-mile/16-kilometer mostly water-starved slice of land that is home to several natural hot springs. At nearby Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, listen for the distinctive call of the greater sandhill crane, which nests here, and look for the elaborate courtship dance among the sage grouse. You’ll need more than one lifetime to explore the 750-mile/1,207-kilometer Oregon Desert Trail, which delves into the state’s most remote corners.

Columbia River Plateau Playground

Molten lava boiled through Northeastern Oregon to form the rugged landscape of the Columbia Plateau eons ago. It’s no surprise the extreme terrain inspires radical outdoor play. In Arlington windsurfers and kiteboarders surf the swell powered by big winds funneling through the Gorge, while paddleboarders and boaters launch from the marina at Earl Snell Memorial Park. Near the quaint farming community of Condon, gravel riders grind up Devils Butte. To the northwest, Cottonwood Canyon State Park is set against the grandeur of the John Day River. Heppner marks the starting point of the Blue Mountain Century Scenic Bikeway, a 108-mile/174-kilometer epic that rewards experienced cyclists with awe-inspiring views of the Blue Mountains. Echo is home to a mountain bike trail system that is perfect for an adrenaline-filled romp through rolling hillsides. Find visitor-friendly farms, gardens, cafes and attractions along the 60-mile/97-kilometer River to Hills Farm Loop Trail linking these towns.
