mid may backpacking
Return to Message Board
I'm taking a business trip out to Portland, Oregon in the 2nd week of May and I decided to stay for the weekend and do some hiking. I've never been in the NW states before and I'm pretty excited.
Right now I'm trying to find a good 2-4 day backpacking trip that would be open that early in the year. My current thought is to go to the Columbia River Gorge. From what I've heard, this should be cleared out of snow (for the most part) by then.
Does anyone have any good loop recommendations for the gorge? Or any other places for that matter?
Also, where do I get trail maps for these parks? Would a gps be recommended?
