Headlamp Hike in Forest Park

  • Feb 5, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Break out your headlamps and join us for a Wednesday night hike in Forest Park. We'll climb up along the creek through Macleay Park in NW Portland, visit the old stone house, then climb to the Pittock Mansion where we'll have beautiful views of the city lit up below us. This 800 foot elevation gain hike will get your heart pumping and chase away the winter chill. Bring warm clothes, a hat, gloves, headlamp or flashlight, raingear and a little snack. If it's wet, trek poles will help with wet and slippery spots. Pace: 2.5 mph.

Depart: 6 pm from the traffic circle just west of NW 29th and Upshur where Macleay Park begins. If traveling by Tri-Met, this is within walking distance of the 15 and 17 buses.  Leader: Jeff Lawton

    So very cold, but not wet? I honestly am not too familiar with what to wear hiking muddy trails (reason I often don't do this in winter.) Thanks.

      Not wet. Any water will be frozen solid!
