Oregon is home to the deepest lake and some of the highest mountains in the United States. It has nearly 300 miles of coastline and more than 40,000 square miles of forest. Much of that land is designated wilderness. Oregon currently has 40 seperate wilderness areas covering over 2.3 million acres. From the towering volcanic peaks of the Tree Sisters Wilderness to the wild and scenic Snake River winding through Hell's Canyon, from the Timberline Trail around Mount Hood to the gorges of Steens Mountain, George Wuerthner takes you through each of these areas in this full-color guidebook. Color-coded by region, each entry includes a map and photograph of the area, its elevation, location, relevant topographical maps, and several suggested backcountry trips.
