Get Outside!

The Cascadia region offers some of the world’s most phenomenal hiking. Whether you’re looking for a kid-friendly stroll on the coast or a challenging hike to a fire lookout, the Pacific Northwest has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to outdoor adventure.

Award-winning author and hiking expert Craig Romano knows the best places to get out and explore. As a guidebook author of 20 books — including many in the immensely popular Day Hiking series from Mountaineers Books — he’s the regional authority on hikes for all four seasons, from the Columbia River Gorge to the North Cascades or the Selkirks.

In a twice-a-month column for Cascadia Magazine, Craig will offer suggestions for hiking adventures throughout the Northwest. Be sure to check out his author website, or purchase his hiking guides online.
