Oregon Trail: Follow the steps of pioneers.

Head to the Historic Barlow Road and see a replica of the old tollgate between mileposts 44 and 45 in Rhododendron. This is where pioneers had to pay $5 to cross. You’ll can also see the Laurel Hill Chute, a vertical area where settlers lowered their wagons.

Head to the Mt Hood National Forest and take a dip in Trillium Lake, a popular place to cool off that offers spectacular views of Oregon’s highest point, Mt. Hood.

Chase a Waterfalls in Mount Hood or Near the Old Parkdale Inn

Tamanawas Falls are amazing at 100 feet high and 40 feet wide. The trailhead footbridge is the midpoint of a 8-mile stretch of the East Fork of the Hood River hosting nesting Harlequin Ducks. Belted Kingfisher are common but it’s the songbirds you’re likely to remember long after they’ve sung their tunes. The trailhead is only 9-miles from the Old Parkdale Inn.

Ramona Falls: This shaded waterfall is in a forest along the Pacific Crest Trail on the upper Sandy River — on the west side of Mount Hood. The falls are about 120 feet tall, consisting of a wall of cascades.

oregon cascade waterfalls

Little Zig Zag River Falls (W19): One of Oregon’s hidden gems. A picturesque stream leads to a photogenic waterfall on this family-friendly trail; complete with a picnic table at the very start. It couldn’t be more perfect.

Pencil Falls (W21): This glacier-fed waterfall is in the alpine area of Mount Hood Meadows. A small path leads to a great viewing.

Upper Heather Canyon Falls (W22): Where the Timberline Trail crosses Heather Creek, is thought to be one of the most scenic areas of Mount Hood. In Heather Canyon a series of waterfalls tumbles beneath this trail.

Umbrella Falls (W23): This popular and family-friendly waterfall is accessible from scenic hiking trails. Look up! You’ll see a chair lift too. Click here to read all about the hike.

White River Falls (W33): The waterfall is the main focus of the White River Falls State Park and for good reason — the scenic White River plunges 90-feet from a basalt shelf. It’s been written up in many books too, see the titles here.

Don’t Let the Sun Set on Summer!

Our Oregon Summer is Sneaking Away and the quieter days of fall are fast approaching. Exploring Oregon at the end of summer feels like you have the whole state to yourself. September and October are great times to visit our great state if you prefer a slower pace. Take a quiet hike, chase a waterfall, discover Oregon.

You’ve been waiting for this quieter Oregon for some time. Here are some of the best outdoor activities in Oregon where you can linger and explore… and you’re unlikely to find crowds! If you want to revel in the great outdoors and have a great time, here are the top five picks from locals in-the-know.

1. Go Chase Waterfalls

One of the best outdoor activities, particularly on a hot day, is to hike to a waterfall and feel the cool mist on your face. You’ll get a workout, soak in some Vitamin-D, and marvel at the beauty of nature. Not sure which waterfall or where to begin? View a digital map to some of Oregon’s most stunning waterfalls here.

2. Cycle Along an Oregon Bike Trail

Did you know Oregon has the ONLY Scenic Bikeway program in the United States? There are 17 scenic bikeways in Oregon! Get ready to ride across desert highways, pedal past geological wonders, and marvel at the sea.

Oregon loves bicyclists. That’s why it’s the first state in the nation to create a Bike Friendly Business program geared toward travelers. And many of the inns with the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild participate. It serves as a recognition and training program aimed to:

  • Help tourism-related businesses understand the importance of Oregon’s growing bicycle tourism industry
  • Provide tips and tools for how businesses can be Bike Friendly
  • Highlight businesses who commit to enhancing the Oregon biking experience for visitors and Oregonians

Oregon Leaf Peepers are sure to enjoy the vibrant fall colors. As fall arrives, days shorten, temperatures cool, and intense sun softens behind slate-gray cloud cover.

Oregon Leaf Peepers have come to expect a stunning fall color show and this year’s changing of the seasons will not disappoint as a variety of deciduous trees begin to change against a bold evergreen background.

Typically one can expect the Willamette Valley peak color change to happen during the third week in October. The higher you go in the Cascade Mountains the earlier the color change. Road passes often peak 10 days to two weeks earlier than the lower elevations.

The earliest fall color display happens in the Wallowa Mountains and northeast region of Oregon, peaking the first part of October.

The travel blog from the Eugene Cascades Coast website will guide you to Oregon’s Brilliant Fall Leaves

When and Where do Leaves change color in Oregon?

Oregon’s peak color is mid-October, starting with a golden blush in the first weeks of September and lingering into early November. You may wish to keep tabs on changes by calling the inns of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild for color updates in their region

Trees at higher elevations change first, so you’ll note that the Cascades, Bend and the coastal range will start showing the signs of fall first. Much of the eastern part of Oregon is high desert while the Willamette Valley is lower elevation.

Plan your Leaf Peeping in Oregon

Begin planning your Fall Foliage Tour, first by choosing a region, then by calling an Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild inn and asking when the peak near them will occur. We may not hit it right on but since we live and play in our regions we have a pretty good idea what’s happening around us.
