Publisher Comments:

Portland Hill Walks features twenty-four miniature adventures stocked with stunning views, hidden stairways, leafy byways, urban forests, and places to sit, eat, and soak in the local scene. The revised and updated edition offers five new walks in addition to the well-loved classics, with new contemporary and historical photos and easier-to-follow directions.

Whether you feel like meandering through old streetcar neighborhoods or climbing a lava dome, there is a hill walk for every mood. New walks take you up to Willamette Stone State Park, across the St. Johns Bridge, down to the South Waterfront (with a ride on the aerial tram), along a stream in Gresham, and up Mounts Talbert and Scott.

Portland is a walking city, and Portland Hill Walks will inspire you to enjoy it to its fullest!

About the Author

As a self-professed forensic pedestrian who honed her craft in Portland, Laura O. Foster writes about Oregon's urban centers, small towns, and natural areas. With wit and insight, she tells the stories — geologic, architectural, botanical, and arcane — of this topographically diverse and beautiful state.

I can't wait to see where Laura will take me with her revisions in this new edition. Laura is way ahead of the class! No where else can you get the depth of understanding the geography, both physical and cultural, and history of a place as you can in Laura's books. For the walker, they are invaluable for finding the interesting cut throughs, stairs and pathways of Portland. Her advise is meticulously accurate and her directions easy to follow. Thanks, Laura, for bring us closer to knowing our fair city.
