"Is hiking even necessary anymore? Yes, now more than ever, we believe."

Bonnie Henderson

Want to share your love of the outdoors with your young children? Best Hikes with Kids: Oregon is just the guide you need to help them experience nature for themselves in a fun, active way. Parents and hiking experts Bonnie Henderson and Zach Urness know what kids need in a hike. These 121 routes are specifically selected to appeal to them, from toddler to grade-schooler, with reasonable distances (most hikes are less than 5 miles) and manageable elevation gain (less than 1000 feet in most cases). A "quick guide" helps you decide where to go, whether it's to marvel at redwods, find wildflowers, play on the beach, spot fossils, or check out waterfalls. MORE
