Upcoming events (5+)

Pathfinder Genesis Trail-Englewood Park: 6miles. 0ft Elevation Gain. Pace:3.5mph

Distance: 6miles. No Elevation Gain. Pace: 3.5mph The trails are all paved on this one and its all on the flat. Be prepared to walk/jog (if you like) as this will be a very fast workout

Thursday Morning Westside Hike: 6.5miles, 450ftgain, 3.5mph

New Seasons Progress Ridge, Beaverton

Distance: 6.5 miles. Elevation Gain: 450ft. Pace: 3.5mph Nice weather and so a nice walk to go with it. This event takes place on the paved Westside Trail in Beaverton. Also, it is family friendly (stroller and even bike but some steep slopes with road crossings so caution) for those of us that have the honor of staying at home to bring up our children.

Buck Mt Trail to Shellburg/Stassel Falls: 18Miles 3000ft Gain 3.5mph Pace

Distance: 18miles. Elevation Gain: 3000ft. Pace: 3.5mph Not to be confused with the Trail of Ten Falls in the NorthWest section of the park, this hike begins at Howard Creek Horse Camp and takes the Buck Mt Trail to the South East and the South to parks end. From here we take the Lost Creek Trail down forested slopes to Shellburg Falls and Stassal Falls (and possibly several others) before heading back up the ridge to Silver Falls State Park. The distance may be more if we side trip to several relatively unknown falls near Shellburg. The weather is calling for sunny skies so dress and fill you pack accordingly (layers, hat, sunglasses, sun block, 3 liters water, snacks and a lunch). The route does have some steep sections so hiking poles might be a great addition to bring. This event takes about 2 hours driving each way so I suspect we will be back to Sunset around 5pm.
