Saturday, August 11, 9:00 am
The August walk will be led by Hans and Jette Steuch. We will start our walk by carpooling to Brugger St near Lewis and Clark College.
Starting at Brugger Street we will head north on View Point Terrace, through River View Cemetery to Taylors Ferry Road, Fulton Park Boulevard and Corbett Avenue until we intersect Trail 3 at Carolina Street. We’ll take Trail 3 east and south to Willamette Park and follow trails south along the Willamette River, under the Sellwood Bridge, through Powers Marine Park to a point where we head west, cross Macadam Ave, and return via trails in River View Natural Area to Brugger Street.
Distance is 5.5 miles with about 550 feet of elevation gain. The walk is on paved streets and trails with a few mildly challenging spots. We will meet behind the bleachers at Wilson High School (SW Sunset Blvd. and SW Capitol Highway) and be ready to carpool at 9:00 am. Well-behaved dogs on leash are normally allowed on SW Trails hikes, however Portland Parks allows no dogs in the River View Natural Area. For health reasons, there is no smoking on SW Trails walks.
