There is just something special about the Pacific Northwest. The scenery is always breathtaking and on point..or maybe I just feel that way because I live in Dallas and we don't have "tsunami zones" marked or beautiful trees at every turn. If it's not too hazy, you can actually see the Houston skyline from here, but that doesn't happen much. (JK;) )
Either way, the beauty is uncomparable and there is so much to see and do! Here's my list of things I have done and things I want to do, in alphabetical order. Mind you, we stayed in Salem, which is better for some hikes and worse for others. Keep in mind where you are staying and figure out where you can go from there! Buuut also know that if you are staying anywhere near the city, you are probably going to have a bit of a drive regardless.
Angels Rest. It is known for its gorge and beautiful views of the Columbia River. There's also Devil's Rest if you want to check both out! AR is under 5 miles, so you may just have the energy to do both! It's only 30 minutes from Portland and about an hour from Salem.
Cannon Beach. So not much of a hike, but there are some mini hikes and a lookout point that is awesome! I actually wrote about my time in Cannon Beach here. SO worth it. It is about 1.5 hours from Portland and 2 hours from Salem.
Crater Lake National Park. This has a beautiful lake, hiking scene, AND volcano. At a depth of almost 2k feet, it is the deepest lake in the U.S.A. It is about 4 hours from Portland and 3 hours from Salem.
Cascade Head. If you're into special plants or animals, come here! It is a grassland and home to rare wildflowers and species like the Silverspot Butterfly. You also have a beautiful view with stunning shores! It is about 2 hours from Portland and 1 hour from Salem.
Multnomah Falls. This is probably THE hike people do when they visit Oregon. It's less than an hour from Portland and has a ginormous fall. I'll definitely do this on my next trip, since it is so close to the airport. It is about 1.5 hours from Salem.
Opal Creek. This is one of the last low elevation old growth forests left in the PNW. The water is so clear and the shortest hike is only 3ish miles, so most people can do it! It is 2ish hours from Portland and 1.5 hours from Salem.
Silver Falls. This is actually where we hiked in these photos! It is an 8ish mile hike, but there are shorter loops you can take if you don't feel like tackling the whole thing. There are 10 total water falls and they are gorgeous!! It is about 1.5 hours from Portland and 45 minutes from Salem.
Smith Rock. Rock climbers flock here, but even if that's not your thing, there are deep river gorges and great animal sightings like beavers and golden eagles. It is about 3 hours from Portland and Salem.
Andddd because I'm a fashion blogger at heart, I wanted to talk about what I'm wearing! Outdoor Voices is an athletic brand that is truly a lifestyle brand. They make quality product that is not only great for a hike, but is also chic enough to meet someone for happy hour in. They are most known for their sets like I'm wearing, but have a full range of products like tops and jackets, including a mens line! If you're looking for a new brand to try, check them out!!
So, do you have a favorite Oregon hike? Let me know, so I can start planning our next trip!!
