Next Adventure takes you from town to trailhead and along some of the most spectacular trails this country has to offer. Day hikes focus on the natural flora, fauna and geologly of the area, following wildflower blooms, salmon runs and visiting waterfalls and scenic cliff-top views.

Experience the trail with local guides that you know and trust from the store. Get out on day hikes and overnight backpacking trips through some of the most remote areas of Mt. Hood and Northwest Oregon. Anyone can drive to roadside viewpoints - but only Next Adventure can take you to the heart of it all through Mt. Hood's secret backdoor - the Clackamas River basin.

From the magical splendor of the mossy rainforest to the semi-arid desert of the east side, our guides know Mt. Hood and its myriad trails.

If you have any questions about our scheduled tours, would like to be placed on a waitlist for a trip that has been filled, or would like to inquire about a custom group trip, contact outdoorschool@nextadventure.net.
