Yelp's fine in all things eatery and dentistry, but in matters of adventure it’s like asking Grandma where to find the best hike.
You deserve better.
In service of better: Outdoor Project, suggesting Northwest travels befitting of your time and your tab at the REI counter.
Launched this year, the site is stocked with over six-hundred curated, topo-mapped and difficulty-classed experiences — photo-rich and as detailed as blueprints.
A few of our favorites:
Broken Top Crater
Push your 4x4 along the craggy upward trail to find a hike atop an extinct volcano with postcard views of the Three Sisters.
Multnomah Falls and Creek
Oregon’s tallest waterfall is just one of many falls you’ll spot along this easy loop of the Columbia River Gorge.
Finally, a community-driven resource that's good for more than lo-res food porn.
