Adventurous Hike w/in 2 hours of PDX

Looking for an adventurous 10 mile (give or take) hike within 2 hours of Portland. Adventure could come in the form of some snow travel, some routefinding, some scrambling, etc. Don't want to have to rope up, and would prefer off the beaten track/away from crowds. Anything jump to mind?

Thx!
