Monthly Pack Walk -Mary S Young Park

July's Pack Walk will take us to the Willamette river, in West Linn. The Clackamas/West Linn/Oregon City area has lots of beautiful parks and recreation trails to explore, and we will start with the popular Mary S Young Park, on the banks of the Willamette.

"Mary S. Young State Park offers you a peaceful place to walk or sit by the Willamette River. This quiet, forested park is a favorite for urban birders. As you walk deeper into the forest on the numerous trails (5-8 miles worth), it's easy to forget you're in a city. It's a quick but refreshing stop if you don't have time for a drive to the country." - Oregon State Parks

This is a great opportunity to see an area near Portland that is often overlooked by its residents. After our usual 2-3 miles Pack Walk along some of the trails, your dog will be able to enjoy an off leash play area, to burn off any extra enthusiasm for being in such a great park.


Our monthly Pack Walks are fun, social, outdoor walks with our dogs between 1-3 miles, in and around the Portland OR metro area. The monthly walk is scheduled the first Saturday, at 10:00, with changing locations.

    Thank you for coming! The Walks work because of all of you, and your wonderful dogs. After all, it's "Pack Walk," not "Lone Wolf Stroll."

    Rats! I forgot all about this. Just was well, because puppy is still too excitable to be reliable on leash.

    Any chance we can START at the off leash area, to burn off excess energy? It might help with control on the walk...

      Hi Nancy, I like to keep the Walk as consistent as possible (10 am start), but you are welcome to arrive early to let your pup play before we get started.

    I haven't been able to join the group recently. I am so bummed. Anyway, have a great walk!

    Mishka will be almost 5 months at this point, so I think it's time for him to join the group. Yay!
