SWTrails Monthly Hike Saturday, August 10
August 10 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
This month’s hike will be led by Hans and Jette Steuch; from the starting point at Wilson High School we will carpool to Brugger St near the intersection with Palatine Hill Road. From there we will head east and south through River View Natural Area temporary Trail 3B, Lewis and Clark College, pick up SW Urban Trail 5, and walk through Riverdale/unincorporated Multnomah county on Summerville Ave, Palatine Hill Rd and several other local streets until we enter Tryon Creek State Natural Area near Northgate Ave and return to Brugger St via trails in the Natural Area and Palatine Hill Road.
We will meet behind the bleachers at Wilson High School (SW Sunset Blvd. and Capitol Highway) and be ready to go by 9:00 am. Bring a snack, water, good footwear, sunglasses and dress for the weather. Well-behaved dogs are allowed. They must be on leash. For health reasons, there is no smoking on SWTrails walks.
The distance is approximately 5.0 miles, elevation change about 650 feet; there’s a couple of relatively steep stretches about 100 feet long.”
