Third Annual Ornament Trail Hike

  • Gateway Transit Center

    1321 NE 99th Ave., Portland, 97220, Portland, OR (map)

    45.532467 -122.562447

  • I drive a blue Honda Civic
  • It's been a couple of years since I led an ornament trail hike. This year let's bring something for everyone to share and have a pre-Christmas "party" on the Nesika Lodge porch. On the way to the Lodge, we will hit the ornament trail. It is fun to hang an ornament on a tree so if you are so inclined, bring one along. 

    I am not sure of the elevation gain or mileage but it is neither long nor steep. We start at Multnomah Lodge, hike to the top of the falls, head up the Larch Mtn. trail and veer off at the Highwater trail. After zigzagging up the hill, we hit a flat area before entering the ornament trail.

    It is winter so come prepared for the weather. Absolutely no cotton. Please bring the ten essentials. 

    No forest pass needed to park at Multnomah Falls. $5 for the drivers. 

    PARTICIPATE AT YOUR OWN RISK; Northwest Wilderness Group organizers are volunteers. We come prepared to lead you on a trail or off trail hike but assume no liability for your safety getting to or from the trail-head or on the hike. In case of accident, illness, or other incapacity, hikers must pay for their own medical and/or evacuation expenses, whether or not the hiker has specifically authorized them.
