SWTrails Monthly Walk Saturday, May 11
May 11 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Lee Buhler will lead the walk on May 11 to Tryon Creek Park. We will start by car pooling to the SW 4th Ave. entrance to Tryon Creek Park, a lush, wooded, reminder of the thick vegetation that once covered the SW hills of Portland. From the trailhead we will go through some outer loop trails in Tryon Creek Park including 4th Ave.Trail, Lewis and Clark Trail, Cedar Trail, Red Fox Trail, etc. We should see a variety of native forest flowers, forest critters, and hopefully Trillium should be blooming. The hike will be 4.5 to 5.5 miles depending on how people are doing. The hike has ups and downs with about 600 feet elevation gain. The trails may be a bit muddy so dress accordingly.
We will meet behind the bleachers at Wilson High School (SW Sunset Blvd. and Capitol Highway) and be ready to carpool 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.
For more information or to volunteer to lead a future walk in your neighborhood, contact Sharon Fekety (firstname.lastname@example.org). We are also looking for a new walking coordinator.
