3rd Saturday Walk April 20, 2024

April 20 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

SWTrails/PBOT 3rd Saturday Walk, April 20, 2024, 9am to 11:30am

3rd Saturday Walk April 20th, 2024
Start time:  9am (arrive at 8:45 so we can leave by 9am)
Name: Barbur Transit Center/Maricara Natural Area Loop
Start Location: Barbur Transit Center Near the Pedestrian Crossing Bridge
Neighborhood: Markham Neighborhood
Distance: 3.1 miles
Pace:  2 mph
Elevation change:  110 ft.
Bus Information:  Check TriMet Schedule for bus information
Special Notes:  This hike begins the next 3-month common starting point as SWTrails continues its walking partnership with Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT).  A good portion of this hike is off road, and trails can be rough at sections.  Bring walking sticks at your own discretion.

Our walk will begin at the Barbur Transit Center where we’ll take the Pedestrian Bridge to the west side of Jackson Middle school and down the Little Falling Creek Trail to wend our way to the south trail loop of the Maricara Natural Area. We’ll begin to head back by taking the north loop of Maricara Natural Area to loop all the way through the park back onto Maricara where we will head back via the Pedestrian Bridge to our starting point.   As always, check the weather for the day of the walk and wear layers for the best hiking experience.

Bring a snack, water, good footwear, and dress appropriately for the weather (raingear? sunglasses?). Note that smoking on our walks is not permitted for health reasons. Kids and well-behaved pets on leash are welcome. Restrooms are at times hard to come by but we will try and find one along the way.

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.

We have a need for a hike coordinator and a membership coordinator.  Contact us using the “Help the Trails” tab on our website if you would like to support SWTrails PDX in either of these capacities
