Blanton St Trail Head
In keeping with the theme of this month's book, A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson, we'll do a real walk in the woods as a warm-up for book discussion. I will be traveling and unable to make it but Shannon will lead the hike and book discussion. I'm posting the hike and book discussion as separate events for people who can only attend one and not the other but of course it will be a fun day for people to do both.
We'll hike South Eugene's Ridgeline Trail from Blanton Rd. Trailhead to the Willamette St. Trailhead and back. This is a relatively easy 3.6 miles on well-defined trails. For an overview map, check here: http://www.eugene-or....

Please bring water and clothing appropriate for changing weather. This trail does have some poison oak: http://en.wikipedia.o.... If you don't know what it looks like, please ask another member of the group.
