About the Author
With more than two million supporters nationwide, the Sierra Club is the nation's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization. The Oregon Chapter of the Sierra Club (the authors of this guidebook) has been committed to protecting the beauty, biodiversity, and accessibility of the recovering Tillamook and Clatsop State Forest ecosystems for three decades. Their need to make people aware of these temperate coastal rain forests--and in effect, promote their protection--is a major impetus of this book.
50 Hikes in the Tillamook and Clatsop State Forests takes on the environmental protection characteristics of the Sierra Club to lead a conservation effort by using their vast network of millions of volunteers. The contributors to this book encourage people to visit these adventurous regions, and in doing so, hope that others will join them in protecting these forests.

"Less known to Oregon hikers, the deep woods of the Tillamook State Forest are a mystery no longer. Close to Portland, but uncrowded and easy to access, these 50 hikes lead to explorations of meadows, creeks, swimming holes, and peaks in an iconic Oregon ecosystem, the temperate rainforest." --Laura O. Foster, author of Columbia Gorge Getaways: 12 Weekend Adventures from Towns to Trails
"The Sierra Club's 50 Hikes in the Tillamook and Clatsop State Forests is part traditional guidebook, part manifesto on environmental preservation, aiming to inspire in readers an appreciation of public lands--and a corresponding determination to protect the Tillamook and Clatsop State Forests from eager logging companies."
