Drift Creek Trail

Great trail. Beautiful trees and moss strait out of lord of the rings. We expected it to be less traveled and were very surprised that the parking lot was almost full. We had packed back packs and reported our location to family, thinking that it was very remote. Though the last road out there is windy and long, there was a good deal of activity on the trail. Great family hike. The suspension bridge was quite a treat. On the way back out we took the north loop. Nice change if your not into out and backs but prefer loops. It was probably close to the same distance. It was a bit muddy so hiking boots are recommended. Don't forget your 5$ or pass for the parking fee. Definitely recommend this hike to anyone who is into hiking. We took so many pictures of the sun shining through mossy trees and spider webs. Because of the wetness of the air, you could capture sunbeams coming through the trees with a simple point and shoot.

One of my favorite hikes, esp. when the falls are partially frozen. Absolutely stunning. No bathrooms.

Nice trail only 10 min away from downtown. Beautiful views at Pittock Mansion. Audubon Society is a lovely place to visit - they have little strolling paths and birds, obvs. Real bathrooms at the mansion and the A.S. are a plus.

Moderate trail with nice views of the coast. Not really worth the long drive from Portland (2 hours each way) unless you plan to spend a day at the beach. Probably best to do during whale migration season. Very muddy. Trail head parking was packed by the time we left at 2pm.

It took me 4 tries to get this one done, mostly starting too late to finish before dark. It's a nice hike, sheltered in the woods a bit, but there are plenty of places to peek over the cliffs and see the ocean. Muddy, but you can go around it easily enough. Probably crowded on the south end in the summer, but a on a chilly winter Saturday, we only saw a few people.

Deschutes Wild & Scenic River - Out and Back

If someone had told us last year that we would be attempting an overnight backpack adventure in January, I would have laughed hysterically. It usually pours rain in January, which makes for less than ideal camping conditions. But this has been a warm and dry winter so far so we decided to take advantage of that and do an early season overnight on the Lower Deschutes.

We had planned to camp at the same place we camped at last year with our friend David (about 3.5 miles in from the trailhead). But it was a gorgeous day and last year, we had visited an abandoned boxcar at around mile 6 and decided on the spur of the moment to camp near it instead.

Rivière des Chutes, the name given to the river by 19th-century fur traders, means 'River of the Falls.' It is perfectly named, as we saw many rapids along its length and its sound lulled us to sleep. The views of the Deschutes River Canyon, especially when the sky is covered with stars during a waxing moon phase, made every little ache, pain and worry worth the trip. The trains go by every couple of hours, which can sound rather loud, but we were miles from anyone and completely alone. It was very awe-inspiring.
