Author and hiking guru William L. Sullivan takes us on a dozen new trails he discovered in the area between Salem and Bend while researching the newly released fourth edition of his guidebook, "100 Hikes in the Central Oregon Cascades." Included are paths to a warm springs near Oakridge, a lake with a reflection of South Sister, and a wildflower meadow at Mt. Jefferson. Along the way, expect anecdotes about local history, geology, and outdoor lore. Sullivan is the author of three novels and a dozen books about Oregon, including the popular "100 Hikes" series, "Oregon Trips & Trails," "Hiking Oregon's History," and "Oregon Favorites." 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.
