I went to Opal Creek this summer and was absolutely in awe of this forest! Enormous old growth trees. I've long heard that it makes for good snowshoeing as well. The location is weather dependent... this forest is only 2k in elevation so there may not be enough snow. If so we'll reschedule another location. Please note that this location does have a "lodge" at the end of the trail but it is not open to public use.
MEETUP LOCATION: 19119 S. Beavercreek Road Oregon City. Please park near the Dutch Brothers entrance and furthest from the businesses so there is plenty of parking for them. Please note that the meetup location is tentative, dependent on the weather. Here is an online description of the site: https://www.trails.com/tcatalog_trail.aspx?trailid=SGW014-018
