    A guidebook for both experienced and casual hikers, Hiking from Portland to the Coast explores the many trails and logging roads that crisscross the northern portion of Oregon’s Coast Range. While showcasing convenient “looped” routes, it also describes complete throughways connecting Portland to the coastal communities of Seaside and Tillamook. Winding among old neighborhoods, city parks, and even under freeways, Portland has more than sets of stairs. Some, like the grand Washington Park stairs or the steps up the side of Mount Tabor.

      And Portland is a really great-looking city! Parts of it, anyhow. So this book is not strictly about getting from place to place; it’s more about seeing what’s right in front of you. I should also probably clarify that it’s not a hiking guide – these are city walks, through neighborhoods. COVID Resources.
