1. Oregon This section of trail is one of the shortest and easiest to hike of the entire tri-state route. The stroll across this state is along nearly flat, plateau-like, forested terrain that has very little resemblance to the rugged mountains of California or Washington. Other than the glimpses of scattered strata volcanoes along the route, it is easy to forget that you are hiking in the mountains. This section ends with a beautiful waterfall lined descent into the Columbia River Gorge on the Oregon/Washington border.
