For all you girls who love spending time outdoors in our beautiful city! I would love to go on a hike in Forest park. It is super easy to get to from downtown.
Meeting Place: International Test Rose Garden (NOT THE ROSE GARDEN ARENA). If people would like to meet at a break fast place first we can do that as well (like we did for the last hike). We will start the hike at 8:30 am. If people would rather do lunch that's fine with me too!
Hike Type: Rose Garden, walk around rose garden, and up to pittock mansion.
Distance: 5 miles
Elevation gain: about 1,000 feet
Difficulty: Moderate (see the map my ride link above to see the elevation characteristics). We will be shooting for 20 min miles, which is a healthy leisurely pace. Last time we didn't stop to often and people did make the slights climbs with good gusto.
