This is our monthly 2nd Saturday hike so a bit faster pace 2.5mph and 6.75 miles and 1,000 ft of elevation gain. We park and start from Ida B Wells HS off Hillsdale Hwy by the food carts at 8:45 – 9:00AM. TriMet serves that area with several buses. We will walk down through George Himes Park to the River and along the river walk for a few miles to near the base of the Tram, then return up a different route on Slavin Rd, Buhler cut-off trail and back to our start at Ida B Wells HS
Bring a snack, water, good footwear, sunglasses, and rain gear 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.
Looking forward to seeing you there with us.
