Willamette National Forrest has some of the PNWs most picturesque waterfalls. And you can see one of them without a particularly long hike. With 286 feet of vertical drop, Salt Creek Falls is Oregon’s second highest single drop waterfall. And with two different routes—a 50-yard loop or a 250-yard loop—and lots of raised walkways, you can take in the wonder of this waterfall without taking much time out of your day.
If you’ve ever wondered what running a ranch is like, this charming forest outfit is a great place to find out. With donkeys, dairy goats, a llama and a whole lot of chickens and turkeys, their tours help you get to know all kinds of different farm animals. And with farm-fresh foods, like goat milk ice cream and free-range eggs, they help you get your hands on some seriously tasty souvenirs too.
During the winter, Odell Lake and the surrounding forest transform into an absolute wonderland. You’ll find ample opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling. But if downhill skiing is hands-down your favorite, you don’t want to miss Willamette Pass Resort. With an average annual snowfall of 430 inches and five lifts to help you enjoy it, you’ll find that, here, the fun doesn’t end when our fishing season does.
There are dozens of incredible mountain biking trails in our neck of the woods. But if you’re new to the sport or just enjoy meeting other bikers, Cog Wild’s guided tours are a great way to roll. With half-day, full-day and winter fat-tire biking, they offer all kinds of excursions to choose from. And with bike rentals available, they’ll help you make sure you’ve got all the gear you need too.
The Pacific Crest Trail has inspired books, movies and thousands of people from all over the world to explore their physical and mental limits. And Shelter Cover is located just off that trail. If you’re looking for a challenge and want to see the iconic PCT for yourself, we highly recommend this day hike along it. Clocking in at 13.2 miles, the trail is a real endurance challenge. But the lake and the views from the top are well worth it. We recommend planning to spend at least 7 hours completing this hike and bringing a good supply of bug spray too.
