From the towering volcanic peaks of the Three Sisters Wilderness to the Wild and Scenic Snake River winding through Hells Canyon, from the Timberline Trail around Mount Hood to the gorges of Steens Mountain, this detailed guide takes you to outdoor adventures in both the famous and lesser-known of Oregon's Wilderness Areas. Learn about the natural, human, and geological history of these protected lands; climate; flora and fauna; and ongoing preservation efforts. Whether day-hiking or backpacking, cross-country skiing or boating, this book will help you to explore the variety of activities and natural treasures within Oregon's 40 designated Wilderness Areas. Also included are full descriptions of Oregon Cascades Recreation Area and Crater Lake National Park, not official Wilderness Areas but still major Cascade wildlands. In Oregon's Wilderness Areas: The Complete Guide, ecologist, writer, and photographer George Wuerthner brings the state's diverse wildlands together into one comprehensive, pack-along guidebook.
