Publisher Comments:

60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Portland by Paul Gerald profiles 60 select trails that give outdoor adventurers a little of everything there is to enjoy around Portland: mountain views, forest solitude, picturesque streams, strenuous workouts, casual strolls, fascinating history, fields of flowers, awesome waterfalls, and ocean beaches. Whether readers want a convenient city bus ride to the flat and fascinating Washington Park, a bumpy drive to Lookout Mountain, or the thigh-burning experiences that are Kings and Elk Mountains, this book lets them know what to bring, how to get to the trailhead, where to go on the trail, and what to look for while hiking. Updated maps, new hikes, even more rankings and categories, fresh photography, and useful backpacking options make the newest edition of this authoritative guide to Portland's best day hikes the most exciting yet.

Synopsis:

For 15 years, local outdoor and travel writer Paul Gerald has been the authority on Portland hiking and has just released a substantial update to 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Portland.

“Portland is second to none in the types of hiking around,” Gerald says. “Everybody asks, ‘Whats your favorite hike? And I always say, ‘Well, that depends.”

Consistently found on Powells “Best of Nonfiction” shelf, Gerald has spent the last year researching the guides 5th edition. Readers will find the same features that has made 60 Hikes: Portland the hiking guidebook to own: detailed trail descriptions, key at-a-glance information for quick planning, original maps with elevation profiles, and Geralds own exhaustive list of hike recommendations.

About the Author

Paul Gerald's writing career began in the sports department of the much-missed Dallas Times Herald. He later worked for the Memphis Commercial Appeal and the Memphis Flyer before setting out as a freelancer. His work has appeared in Northwest Airlines WorldTraveler, Portlands Willamette Week, Dish Magazine, Weissmann Travel Reports, and numerous newspapers around the country.

Geralds hiking life started at age 12, when he went to a summer camp in the Absoraka Mountains of Wyoming. He became a trail and road hound at that point, and his hometown of Memphis never looked the same. Hes hiked in the Rocky Mountains from New Mexico to Montana, as well as in Appalachia, Alaska, Nepal, and Argentina. In 1996 he moved to Portland to be close to the ocean, the mountains, and the big trees.

Gerald is co-author of The Best in Tent Camping: Oregon (Menasha Ridge Press), and the author of Day and Overnight Hikes: Oregons Pacific Crest Trail, (Menasha Ridge Press) and Breakfast in Bridgetown (Bacon and Eggs Press). For more, see paulgerald.com.

This is a great resource if you live near Portland or are visiting and looking for a good reference guide. I appreciate how it lists out trails that are kid friendly. I have pulled it out many times for a weekend road trip. My only issue with the book is that there are a couple of hikes that are farther out than 60 miles.
