On this hike led by Dan Rassmussen we will show off several sections of the Red Electric trail starting in Pendleton Park and pass through 3 additional parks; Gabriel, Stevens Crossing, Albert Kelly. We will use several connector trails and the Red Electric Bridge as we walk the Hayhurst, Multnomah, and Hillsdale neighborhoods. There will be both on-street and trails hiking along the way. This is a rather long hike but relatively flat so we should keep pace at 2.5 mph which is standard for our faster paced 2nd Saturday hike. In the event of inclement weather there are options to shorten the hike, but we are a hardy group so prepare for what early winter weather can bring.
Bring a snack, water, good footwear, rain gear, umbrella, and maybe sunglasses as appropriate. Dress and prepare for the weather on the day of our hike. Children and well-behaved dogs on leash are welcome. For health reasons, there is no smoking on SWTrails walks and hikes. If you need to leave the hike early let the hike leader know. We try to find a restroom along the way, but it’s not always possible to do so.
Looking forward to seeing you there with us.
