Announcing a new Meetup for Eugene Hiking & Camping Meetup Group!
What: Elijah Bristow State Park
When: November 8, 2009 11:00 AM
Elijah Bristow State Park
38263 Wheeler Rd
Dexter, OR 97431
This nearby state park is on the Willamette River just below Dexter dam. We'll plan to hike 3 or 4 miles on the mostly level trails through woodlands, meadows and along the river.
The forecast is for a break in the rain, but bring a raincoat to be safe. Waterproof shoes or boots will help, or at least an extra pair of shoes and socks for when we get back.
I'm bringing some wood and (low fat kosher) hot dogs to hopefully roast on a fire in the picnic area if possible after the hike. Bring something for a cookout or barbecue if you want to join me.http://www.oregonstateparks.org/park_83.php
Take Highway 58 about 9 miles east of I-5. Then turn left on Wheeler Road at the Chevron gas station. Go for 1/4 mile and turn right at the sign for the park. Go to the end of the road and park in the group picnic area lot near the restrooms.
There is no entrance fee
