New Hikes in Oregon
A slide show presentation by William L. Sullivan
Author and hiking guru William L. Sullivan will take us on a slide show tour of new and changed trails he discovered while updating his “100 Hikes” guidebooks for Oregon. Although some trails closed in 2017 because of fire, Sullivan balances that news with descriptions of an equal number of new and overlooked trails. We’ll visit a reopened waterfall hike in Central Oregon, learn what’s changed in the Columbia Gorge, sample a new section of the Oregon Coast Trail, and explore hot springs in Eastern Oregon. As always, Sullivan spices his talk with anecdotes about history, wildflowers, and geology along the way.
Sullivan is the author of 22 books about history, mystery, and adventure. His latest is an illustrated travel journal, “Little Travelers: Six Months in Europe With Two Kids.” His journal of a 1000-mile hike across Oregon, “Listening for Coyote,” was chosen by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission as one of Oregon’s 100 most significant books.
