2nd Saturday Hike: Barbur Blvd Park ‘n Ride
January 8 at 8:45 am - 11:30 am
“Welcome to 2022 let’s get out there hiking with your neighbors. The SW Trails Neighborhood hike for January 8th will be led by Dave Manville it is about 6 miles of hiking with 770 feet of elevation change. We start this hike at Barbur Blvd Transit Center, 9712 SW Barbur Blvd. We gather at about the middle of the lot towards the back side. For this first 2022 hike we will explore N and check out what’s going on at the Capital Hwy Project then zig and zag our way through the Tryon Creek Headwaters area through Spring Garden Park and into Multnomah Village in case you have any gift exchanges you still need to get done (kidding). From the village we will head West over to SWTrail #6 and then south on 19th to the Folley Balmer Natural Area and take Qual Point Trail and Huber Street back to the Transit Center.
Joining us? Great! Always be at least 10 minutes early to sign in. 2nd Saturday hikes are geared to last 2.5 hours, keeping the pace at 2.5 miles per hour and will be distances of 5-7 miles.
Many buses serve the Barbur Transit Center and car parking is ample on Saturday Mornings.
As we gather and hike we are following Oregon Health Authority guidelines. Masks are required as we meet for the hike and when you cannot maintain 6 feet of distance from those not in your Pod. We prefer that all walkers be fully vaccinated. A mask is not required while we walk but be prepared to use your mask when social distancing can’t be maintained while walking. No vaccination? Then you need to wear a mask at all times while participating in our hikes and always keep a 6ft distance from other walkers.
Bring a snack, water, good footwear, sunglasses, and rain gear as appropriate. Dress and prepare for the weather on hike day. Well-behaved dogs are allowed but must be on leash. For health reasons, there is no smoking on SW Trails 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.
For more information or to volunteer to lead a future hike in your neighborhood get in touch on our web form HERE. We are looking for a volunteer to be our hike coordinator. If that is a community service you would like to do then reach out to us.
See you out on the trail
