“What are the best hikes in Oregon?” It’s one of the most difficult and most frequently asked questions I get. This state is so diverse that picking favorite hikes is hard. I decided that the best way to answer the question was to come up with 20 different hikes that, in my opinion, are the best in their category. I have a lot more exploring to do, and eventually I would like to expand this list to five hikes per category. Until then, click here for my favorite lists.
