Come on out and join SW Trails on Saturday November 19 at 9am as we walk through local neighborhoods on our way to the backside of Marquam Natural area and up to a lovely view of downtown Portland, weather permitting, before circling back to where we started.
Bring a snack, water, good footwear, rain gear, umbrella, and maybe sunglasses as appropriate. Dress and prepare for the weather on hike day. 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 a hike leader know. We try to find a restroom along the way, but it’s not always possible to do so.
Hope to see you there
