My ultimate hiking hero is William L. Sullivan, who publishes a whole series of
books on hiking in Oregon. His books are the definitive source for Oregon
hiking trails, in my opinion. They are so commonly known, that often times they
are just referred to as "the red book", "the blue book",
etc. The trail descriptions are fairly complete, and have the most meaty
descriptions out there. Most of the trails on this website follow his naming scheme. Be sure to
visit his website.
At Amazon, you can purchase his
Central Oregon Cascades,
Oregon Coast, and
Eastern Oregon guides.
