The Cascadia Wildlands Project will be leading more hikes into the enchanted forests of the proposed Devilís Staircase wilderness starting in February. Note that the April 4th hike will be to the actual Devilís Staircase waterfall whereas the other hikes will not. The difficulty of each of these varies. Ongoing hikes into the spring and summer are planned.

General Hike Info: For all hikes, bring a hefty lunch and a snack, at least a 1/2 gallon of water, raingear, and stout boots. All the hikes are OFF-TRAIL and not for the thin-skinned. Hypothermia, broken bones, falling trees and branches, dermatitis, and even vehicle accidents are an inherent hazard to this activity and participants assume all personal risks and liabilities. The Cascadia Wildlands Project cannot be held responsible for personal injury or property damage incurred during hike activities.

February 7: All Devil's Staircase hikes are difficult, but this one will be exceptionally so. Hike leaves at 8:00 am sharp from Kinkos back lot (13th and Willamette St.) and will return at approx 7 pm. Email Dave and Dee Tvedt for RSVP and for more information.

March 7: This hike will be in less rugged terrain and while still difficult, it will be less demanding than most other hikes into the Devilís Staircase. Hike leaves at 8:00 am sharp from Kinkos back lot (13th and Willamette St.) and will return at approx 6-7 pm. Email Dave and Dee Tvedt for RSVP and for more information.

April 4: The destination of this long and very difficult hike will be to the actual Devil's Staircase waterfall. Hike leaves at 7:15 am sharp from Kinkos back lot (13th and Willamette St.) and will return at approx 8 pm. Email Dave and Dee Tvedt for RSVP and for more information.
