Yes, another Gorge hiking question.
Will be in Salem this coming weekend. Hope is to leave early in the morning (Saturday, 10/20) and take a relatively strenuous day hike (beyond easy or beginner level at least) in the Gorge area during the day, Would prefer to park once, hike and then leave as opposed to multiple car in and outs. Then, Portland (or somewhere else?) for dinner and back to Salem by 9pm or so.
Suggested itinerary for any and all would be appreciated. Weather looks like it will be spectacular as of this writing though I'm aware it could change.
