There's nothing like getting off the grid. We've done some epic hikes as a family. Most of our favorites are in Oregon's Central Cascades, but there's plenty of hiking more local to us in the Adirondack and Catskill ranges, too. Here are some of our favorite hike reports!

Broken Top and No-Name LakeExpansive views of Broken Top were before us and to our side for much of the hike. We crested the last rise before No-Name Lake just after just 2 miles of hiking. It was breathtaking.

Mount BachelorIt may have been the wrong season to hit up a ski resort, but Mount Bachelor’s summit was too close for us to ignore during this hiking season. Plus: Cuppa Yo and Bend’s Brewfest.

Green LakesWe chose to take it 'easy' today. We opted for Green Lakes: it's a hike we’ve done several times before that has a big payoff for less effort.
