- The preeminent long-distance trail of the west, stretches 2,638 miles each way, from the deserts of northern Mexico to the forests of Canada, through some of the most rugged and beautiful scenery the western United States has to offer. Through Oregon and Southern Washington, its path undulates through pristine territory-Rogue River National Forest, Crater Lake National Park, Umpqua National Forest, Deschutes National Forest, Willamette National Forest, Mt. Hood National Forest, Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and Gifford Pinchot National Forest. This is a favorite of weekend hikers. Permits may be required in some sections.
