Stroll & Coffee Saturday, September 21

Explore East Hillsdale: Please join SWTrails on Saturday, September 21, for its monthly “Stroll and Coffee” walk. The “Stroll and Coffee” walk is designed to offer a walking opportunity that is shorter than our traditional hike and ends with a stop for coffee and socializing if you desire. Kids (and well-behaved pets) of all ages welcome.

We will be exploring the eastern section of Hillsdale by heading off between Wilson High and Rieke Elementary Schools. We will walk east on Vermont and wander south at SW 11th to SW Caldew, to SW Terwilliger, where we head north to SW Nevada to explore Hillsdale between Terwilliger and Barbur before circling back to our starting point. We will meet at 9am in the parking lot of Wilson High School near the food trucks (the same location for our longer hikes). Hope to see you there. Continue reading
