Updated: Feb 27, 2019

Oregon is not very famous and popular among hikers but you'll be surprised to find out how beautiful and diverse this state is.

Multnomah Falls

Start your trip at Portland, Oregon. we stayed at The Travelers House, the coolest hostel in the city, in a great location. Walk the N Mississippi Avenue for local bars and restaurants, some unique shops and more. Eat lunch at Portland's Food Cart Pod, with many delicious options. Visit Portland old town, Japanese Gardens.

3h North from Portland you can visit Rainier Mountain (Only if you got time)

Our first stop at Seven Wonders oF Oregon is the Columbia River and the Gorge. Start at Multnomah Falls and Hood River. eat lunch at the restaurant near the falls.

Keep driving towards Mt. Hood, stop at Hood Panorama Point County Park for a scenic view shoot. We stayed at Government Camp, a ski area and mountain town. We traveled in April and there was enough snow for a ski day. Drive to Timberline Lodge to see the view and ski if you'de like.

“Every state in the U.S. has a tourism website, Oregon website is the coolest i've read ”

Our next stop is Painted Hills (4h), hike half a day and eat lunch at Madras town. Keep driving another 1.5h to Smiths Rock National Park and hike during the afternoon (can be done in two separate days as well). Stay the night at Bend (45m from the park), a great little town.

The next day drive 1.5h to Crater Lake, a 655-m deep volcano lake, 7,700 years-old with high clarity percents. If you're traveling off-season check for the park available entrance, we had to drive to the south entrance which caused us some more time.

Stay the night at a local town, as far as you can drive. Our next stop is Oregon's Coast, Florence and New Port are two nice towns to stay in. Visit Cannon beach, there are 10 lighthouses along the coast, Tillamook cheese, and ice cream factory. Head Back to Portland.

If you've got time, visit Olympic National Park at Washington state, stay the night at Olympia town.
