NW Thurman St & NW Leif Erikson Dr, Portland, OR
WHEN: Monday, Dec 12, 2016
TIME: 10:15 am
WHERE: Thurman St Trailhead
TOTAL MILES: ~ 8.5 miles
ELEVATION GAIN: ~ 1,500 ft
DIFFICULTY: Mostly moderate but strenuous on the uphill climbs
ESTIMATED TIME: 4 hrs
This is hike #3 in a series of 13 hikes that cover the entire 80 miles of trail in Forest Park. Because not all of the trails can be done as an independent loop it will require hiking more than 100 miles to complete the entire challenge. If you miss a hike, don't worry. I will continue to cycle through the entire set of hikes and makeup hikes are available upon request.
This is Portland so expect rain and mud. Wear waterproof or water resistant hiking boots and bring your trekking poles if you have them. Wear adjustable layers. Bring a snack and plenty of water.
Please remember that I'm simply a volunteer inviting others to join in on a hike, I'm not a professional guide nor do I receive compensation for leading this hike. I must insist that everybody be responsible for their own safety and well-being.
I tried daydreaming but my mind kept wandering.
