Publisher Comments:

Surrounded by old-growth forests, volcanic peaks, and water in nearly all its forms--from the ocean to alpine lakes, glaciers to waterfalls--the Portland area is a short jaunt from boundless adventure opportunities, many of which can be taken in just one night. This book covers the best one- (and a few two-) night hikes within three hours of the city--perfect for hikers seeking a wilderness experience without the commitment of a lengthy backpacking trek. Trips take readers to the lush Olympic Mountains, eerie Mount St. Helens, the thundering Columbia River, and the quirky spires of Three Fingered Jack.

A fabulous book to get you off the couch and hiking. Flipping through the pages makes me dream of 3 day weekends and gets me planning my next trip out of town. These hikes are close enough to do in a weekend, but several would take a little longer to accomplish. My husband has requested that I leave at least one weekend free a month to do house projects, but otherwise, I have already filled almost every weekend from now until the middle of the summer.
