In 2019 we posted about our goal to complete 500 “featured” hikes from William L. Sullivan’s “100 hikes” guidebook series. The following year we finished the first of the five guidebooks (post) and followed that up by completing two more in 2021 (post). That left us with just the Eastern Oregon and Southern Oregon/Northern California books to complete, and while we didn’t finish either of them off in 2022, we did manage to make significant progress on the hikes to the south by checking off 28 more featured hikes. There was less progress to the east where we were completed just 6 more featured hikes.
Here is where we now stand at the end of 2022, having been on 401 of the 500 featured hikes:
100/100 – “100 Hikes in the Central Oregon Cascades” 4th Edition 2012
100/100 – “100 Hikes/Travel Guide Oregon Coast & Coast Range” 3rd Edition 2009
100/100 – “100 Hikes/Travel Guide Northwest Oregon & Southwest Washington” 4th Edition 2018
79/100 – “100 Hikes/Travel Guide Eastern Oregon” 3rd Edition 2015
81/100 – “100 Hikes/Travel Guide Southern Oregon & Northern California” 4th Edition 2017
We now have just 40 more hikes to check off to complete our goal and with the progress made in 2022 coupled with some creative rearranging of our plans for the remaining hikes we are on track to finish the final hike in September 2024 at Imnaha Falls. A lot of things still need to go right for that to happen, but as of right now if things do go as planned, we will finish Southern Oregon in 2023 and have just 14 hikes in Eastern Oregon to do in 2024.
