In nearly 200 trips Afoot & Afield Portland/Vancouver covers every hike within a one-hour drive of this metropolitan area. Outdoor enthusiasts in the Portland/Vancouver metropolitan area can hit the trail through dense old-growth forests, walk beside spectacular waterfalls, climb to viewpoints above massive glaciers, explore wetlands and meadows, or wander through the quiet forests of a 5000-acre park in metro Portland itself. The hikes range from simple strolls through urban preserves to rugged climbs in the Columbia River Gorge and on glacier-clad Mt. Hood. Hikes that are great in cloudy weather are clearly labeled, and each hike is shown on an up-to-date map. Each hike includes at-a-glance essential information
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
