Summer Hikes with Keen Footwear

June 25, 2022

There are some amazing hikes throughout the Pacific Northwest, Some lead to waterfalls and others to incredible ocean views. We asked the Coastal crew to suggest a few new hikes in Oregon and Washington and the Keen footwear they’d choose to conquer those trails.

Before You Go, Get the Proper Permits

Many hikes and scenic locations require a special permit. In both states, you’ll need a Northwest Forest Pass to access federal land and the Discover Pass for state land in Washington. In Oregon, parking passes are required at most trailheads. Additionally, a special Central Cascades Wilderness Permit is required to access the iconic peaks, alpine meadows, lakes, and forests in and around much of Central Oregon.


Ramona Falls (Trail #797)

Oregon’s Mt. Hood National Forest

Accessible only from the Ramona Falls trailhead due to a missing bridge, this hike crosses the Sandy River and takes you on a 7-mile (in and out) hike to some amazing falls. Total elevation gain of 1,000 feet.


Crack in the Ground

Near Christmas Valley, Oregon

This 1.7-mile loop trail will take you to one of nature’s true wonders. This one is great for summertime, as the temperature at the bottom of the fissure is often 20 degrees cooler than surface temperatures.


Snoqualmie Falls

Snoqualmie Parkway, Railroad Ave

This 1.4-mile trail is well-traveled and loved by locals. The upper observation deck will give you a clear view of the majestic falls.


Barclay Lake

Central Cascades

As you hike along Barclay Creek, you’ll take in all of the scenic wonder and majesty of this 4.4-mile roundtrip hike. Lace-up because you’ll climb 500 feet in elevation by the time you’re back.

Take KEEN on Your Next Hike

You’ll find a wide range of KEEN footwear at your West Coast-owned and operated Coastal.
