Now that the holidays are over I'm interested in getting in some hiking! Sunday was nice and I took "Bonkers" (my dog) out for a little hike at Fern Ridge. That was nice, but i noticed lots of trash on the beach. That got me thinking of the hiking group and so I'm going to plan two hikes: One to Mt Pisgah and one along the beach at fern ridge. this time I'll bring a garbage bag and collect junk.
So look for two new announcements soon. I also had some issues with my email, so if you have sent me anything in the past month or so it likely never reached me. Now that it's fixed, I'd love to hear any options for hikes in in greater Eugene/ Veneta area.
Welcome to the Eugene Hiking & Camping Group! As the name suggests, we are a locally based group of hiking and/or camping enthusiasts that enjoy all that the outdoors has to offer; especially here in the Pacific Northwest. We are a casual, fun, welcoming group that offers opportunities to meet other outdoor enthusiasts while moving those feet. New to town? Just want to get more exercise while socializing a bit? Want to develop a healthy habit? Sign up and get your hike on!
This group meets regularly every week for the “Sunset Hike” on Wednesdays at Spencer’s Butte, as well as scheduling other outings as posted by event organizers. From star gazing for special astronomical events, to coastal excursions, desert, waterfalls, kayak camping, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, or just plain old camping-camping-getting out in it and having fun while we’re at it is what we strive for!
