William Sullivan—known to many as “Oregon’s Hiking Guru”—will follow the trail to the Downtown Bend and Sisters Libraries for two presentations that explore new hikes in Southern Oregon. Both events are free and open to the public.


Sullivan is perhaps best known for his hiking guidebooks, which cover five regions in Oregon. “And yes,” he says, “I have hiked every trail I can find in the state.”


Sullivan will take attendees on a slide show tour of new trails he discovered while researching the new fourth edition of his book, 100 Hikes/Travel Guide: Southern Oregon & Northern California. He’ll delve into hidden lakes in the Trinity Alps, relocated trails at Crater Lake, and wildflower meadows in the Siskiyous. As always, Sullivan spices his talk with notes on the geology, wildlife, and history.


William Sullivan is the author of 18 books about Oregon, including two books on Oregon history and five novels. Books in his popular 100 Hikes series cover five Oregon regions: Northwest Oregon & Southwest Washington, Central Oregon and the Cascades, Oregon Coast and Coast Range, Southern Oregon, and Eastern Oregon.  His journal of a 1000-mile hike he took across Oregon, Listening for Coyote, was chosen by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission as one of Oregon’s “100 Books,” the 100 most significant books in the state’s history.
