Oregon is for hikers
Oregon has nearly 3,400 official hiking trails; and what better way is there to experience the forest than by breaking in a new pair of hiking boots? Hiking allows us to witness both the nuances of our forests and the diverse wildlife and plants that live within them. In state and national forests and parks, trails are carefully planned and laid to minimize disruption to wildlife habitats. While hiking, it’s important to remain on designated trails so fragile plants important to wildlife foraging on the sensitive forest floor won’t be destroyed.
