Hiking Guru Bill Sullivan at the Library

Thursday, May 16, 2019

Illustrated talk about new trails in the Central Oregon Cascades.

Join author and hiking guru William L. Sullivan for an illustrated talk touring a dozen new or dramatically changed trails in the Central Oregon Cascades between Salem and Bend. These gems are featured in the newly released fifth edition of his guidebook "100 Hikes in the Central Oregon Cascades." Included are a new path along the Deschutes River north of Bend, a new bird refuge trail at Salem, and several reopened trails to wildflowers in the Cascades. He’ll also discuss the effects of wildfires and the Forest Service’s new permit system. Along the way, enjoy anecdotes about local history, plants, and outdoor lore.

Sullivan is the author of five novels and a dozen books about Oregon, including the popular “100 Hikes” series, “Hiking Oregon’s History,” and “Oregon Favorites.” His journal of a 1000-mile hike he took across Oregon, “Listening for Coyote,” was chosen by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission as one of Oregon’s 100 most significant books.
