Portland is a hiking wonderland that extends from the depths of the Columbia River Gorge to the snow-capped peak of Mt. Hood. The City of Portland must have been designed with hikers in mind — it was founded by pioneers who traversed the historic Oregon Trail, after all.
Hiking the Oregon Coast Trail is like navigating through an eternal conflict between the forces of chaos and serenity. Those who hike it will find secrets few get to witness such as hidden caves and tide pools teeming with colorful sea life.
