The SW Trails Neighborhood Hike for October 9th is about 6 miles with 450 ft of elevation change (it is hike #23 on the Self-Led hikes list with a couple of creative extensions). Brian Brady will be leading this hike through Hillsdale, Hayhurst, Bridlemile, and Multnomah neighborhoods. We will be going through newly improved trail on Lee street, sightseeing Albert Kelly Park, Gabriel Park, Texas Wetlands with new exit trail and bridge and who know we may go peek at the construction in Gabriel Park and try and figure that out. On the way back we will take the SW 25th and Bertha trail also recently refurbished and return to Robert Gray
Joining us? Great! Always be at least 10 minutes early to sign in. 2nd Saturday hikes are geared to last 2.5 hours, keep pace at about 2.5 miles per hour, and be a total distance of about 5-7 miles. We will meet at Robert Gray School in front on SW 23rd. Bus 54 and 56 have a stop on BH Hwy and it is 3 blocks north up to Robert Gray. If you need transportation assistance let us know.
We are following Oregon Health Authority guidelines. Masks are required in most public outdoor settings regardless of vaccination status if physical distancing is not possible. We prefer that all walkers be vaccinated. Mask-up as we gather, and maintain 6ft social distancing from those not in your family or pod. A Mask is not required while we walk but be prepared to use your mask when social distancing can’t be maintained while walking . No vaccination? Then a mask is always on for our hikes and always keep a 6ft distance from other walkers.
Bring a snack, water, good footwear, sunglasses, and rain gear. Dress and prepare for the weather on hike day. Well-behaved dogs are allowed but must be on leash. For health reasons, there is no smoking on SW Trails walks and hikes. If you need to leave the hike early let a hike leader know. We try to find a restroom along the way, but it’s not always possible to do so.
See you out there
