Zoom Program: William Sullivan on New Hikes in the Central Oregon Cascades
February Program available on YouTube
Author and hiking guru William L. Sullivan takes us on a tour of new or dramatically changed trails in the area between Salem and Bend. All are featured in the newly released fifth edition of his guidebook, 100 Hikes in the Central Oregon Cascades. Completely revised, this new edition to the area between Bend, Salem, and Eugene includes lots of new trails to make up for those that have been closed or changed by recent fires. Included are a new path along the Deschutes River north of Bend, a new bird refuge trail at Salem, and several reopened trails to wildflowers in the Cascades. He discusses the effects of wildfires and the Forest Service’s new permit system. Along the way, expect anecdotes about local history, plants, and outdoor lore.
Sullivan is the author of five novels and a dozen books about Oregon, including the popular “100 Hikes” series, Hiking Oregon’s History, and Oregon Favorites. His journal of a 1,000-mile hike he took across Oregon, Listening for Coyote, was chosen by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission as one of Oregon’s “100 Books,” the 100 most significant books in the state’s history.
