HAPPY VALENTINES DAY, Let's walk the Waters creek Trail
To celebrate Valentine's Day 2019 let's visit one of the most romantic trails in Southern Oregon, "Water's Creek Trail"! This trail is the closest trail to "LOVE STATION", Oregon. Yes that's a real town! It's right between "Wonder" and "Happy Camp". I visited Love Station just last weekend and spoke with the present owners. It was a good visit and we laughed quite a bit. I got a good history lesson from them. At this location we also have "Options"! If you're wanting a flatter wheelchair ready dirt trail we have a quarter mile loop to do in an Enchanted Forest, but if you want a longer three mile stroll through a Magnificent Magical Forest with lots of ups, downs, what's around that corner, & more, this trail is for you! There are benches on both trails, and yes at the trailhead there are toilets available. Be safe and bring paper. This trail is known for it's beautiful spring flowers and Gnome homes. Gnome homes?! Keep your eyes open, you'll never know what you're going to see. Bring cards for your Sweet-Heart on this trail and get them post marked at the one and only "Love Station"! As always keep your frowns, pets, smokes, & weapons at home. Happy Valentine's Day! Wishing you the best from "Love Station, Oregon" We're having way too much fun! XO

What we're about

Welcome to Happy Hikes around Hwy 199. The purpose of this Meetup Group is to invite locals, visitors, and tourists to interact with all that SW Oregon & NW California has to offer. This Group will also bring like minded outdoor explorers together for exciting and thrilling adventures.

We'll be wandering through the Siskiyou/Rogue River/Six Rivers/Umpqua National Forests/county and BLM lands and everything in between including the famed Kalmiopsis Wilderness. We'll take on challenging activities as well as more relaxing events that visit some very mesmerizing phenomenal places. We'll hit trails old and new and even a few that aren't on the map! Our intention is to write descriptions for calendared events that prescribe a trails difficulty ahead of time. That way you'll know what to expect.

This Meetup group is for everyone of any skill level to join and or visit. Our activities will center on hiking trails that surround Highway 199. Hwy 199 lays in a valley that stretches from Crescent City to Crater lake, between the Applegate Valley and the Pacific coast. If there are other activities you want to do, let me know and we'll get them scheduled.

"We're having way too much fun!"

We live by the motto, "The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity."

And don't forget the sunscreen.
