3rd Saturday Walk December 18 2021

December 18, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Gabriel Park Walk

Join SW Trails on Saturday Dec 18th for our 3rd Saturday Walk. These walks are designed to offer a shorter distance 2-4 miles and slower paced walking opportunity. This month Dave Manville will lead an exploration of Gabriel Park via Multnomah Village on a 2.9 mile walk with 315 ft of elevation change. We will start from the Little Gabriel parking lot and head over to Multnomah Village for a look at the holiday trimmings and then back over to Gabriel Park to examine the new names for trails through the park that are being implemented. We’ll head on up and look at the new playground and unfinished path and then head over to the Nature Area trails and walk up the trail to the Nature Shelter by the Community Gardens that was built by SWTrails a couple years ago. We will be mostly on paved streets but will spend time on dirt trails with occasional roots, mud.

Because COVID infection numbers are still high, we would like our walkers to be vaccinated.    We also ask that you comply with current State recommendations to maintain the recommended social distance between other walkers who are not part of your family or personal pod. Be prepared to mask up for our beginning group talk and if social distancing is impossible while walking.  Unvaccinated walkers must mask up for the entire walk. 

Bring a snack, water, good footwear, and dress for the weather, raingear?, sunglasses?. Note that smoking on our walks is not permitted for health reasons. Kids and well-behaved pets are welcome.

Hope to see you there.

For more information or to volunteer to lead a future walk in your neighborhood, contact us at walks@swtrails.org or use our web form on the Walks page HERE to get in touch.

Please also note: We are looking for a hike coordinator to help organize our two monthly hikes. The work involves some creative writing, wrangling hike leaders, distributing communication to various publishing and event sources.  It is fun and takes about 3-5 hours a month.

Co-sponsored by SWTrails PDX and Hillsdale Neighborhood Association.
