I’ve heard great things about Silver Falls SP so I wanted to include this in my itinerary. I wasn’t planning on visiting Cannon Beach, but I found a great place on VRBO so decided to add this to my trip. Since I wanted to visit Silver Falls, I decided to do this 1st after we arrived in Portland and put Cannon Beach at the end of our trip even though the drive from Hood River will be longer. One reason for this was to get to Crater Lake earlier during our trip and take the boat tour to Wizard Island to do some hiking and hopefully the weather will still be nice.
Do you think 3 nights in Bend is about right? We both like to hike easy to moderate trails plus scenic drives. Will the weather be too hot to hike in early Sept? Any kayak rentals near Bend?
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks for all your help!
