| Explore these pages of the Friends of Douglas-Fir
National Monument Web Site. They will point you to some of the best
trails within the proposed Douglas-fir National Monument.
The selected trails information is taken from
* the Willamette National Forest websites (links go to the forest service trail sites),
* the Sweet Home Ranger District's 1999 Trail Guide (the most recent available)
* William L. Sullivan's 100 Hikes/Travel Guide Central Oregon Cascades.
Every effort has been made to cross check and confirm the information given here. But unfortunately, we have not (yet) traveled every one of these trails to check the information. Readers should exercise caution in following these directions. Remember, even when these directions are accurate, this is the outdoors, which is always both beautiful and potentially dangerous.
Mileage distances are taken from Forest Service sources. For Highway 20 distances, which are usually measured "from Sweet Home" it may help to know that the Sweet Home Ranger Station is approximately 2.5 miles from whereever in Sweet Home the measurement starts.
The bracketed numbers [WSXX] are from William Sullivan's book, 100 Hikes/Travel Guide Central Oregon Cascades. Getting a copy is recommended before setting out on any of the trails described in that work.
Special care needs to be taken during the pandemic. Specialists have developed some advice concerning these special steps.
Some of the individual pages of the Trails
List have a few illustrations. These are not
supplied by the Ranger District, but by the Friends.
There is a general Trail
Locator Map on the Trail List page, and most of the trails listed there have individual trail maps taken from the Forest
Service Sites or other similarly reliable sites.
