Saturday, March 12, 9:00 am

The March walk will be led by Rick Kappler.  This walk, which is 6.2 miles with 430 feet elevation gain,  takes us into the far southern and western reaches of Portland and into Tigard.  We will walk through five natural area parks and one developed park including West Portland Park, Dickenson Park, Holly Farm Park, and PCC Sylvania campus, partially on Trail #7.  Although we cross I-5 and highway 99 twice, the route is on quiet back streets with little traffic.

Meet behind the bleachers, near the food carts, at Wilson High School (SW Sunset Blvd. and SW Capitol Highway) and be ready to car pool at 9:00 am.  We will car pool to Western Bike Works in the Winco-Petco parking lot in Tigard where we will start our walk.

Bring a snack and water and dress for the weather.  Well behaved dogs are allowed.  The must be on leash.  For health reasons, there is no smoking on SW Trails walks.

For more information or to volunteer to lead a future walk in your neighborhood, contact Sharon Fekety,
