Author and hiking guru William L. Sullivan takes us on a tour of a dozen new or dramatically changed trails in the area between Salem and Bend, 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, expect anecdotes about local history, plants, and outdoor lore.

About History Pub
These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by McMenamins History, Deschutes Historical Museum, and The Oregon Encyclopedia, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
