Forest Park All Trails Challenge Hike #3: Respect Your Alders

  • to
  • Leif Erikson Trailhead

    NW Thurman St & NW Leif Erikson Dr, Portland, OR (map)

    45.539112 -122.725342

  • We will meet at the gate. It is sometimes necessary to park a few blocks from the trailhead.
  • WHEN: Monday, Dec 12, 2016
    TIME: 10:15 am
    WHERE: Thurman St Trailhead
    TOTAL MILES: ~ 8.5 miles
    ELEVATION GAIN: ~ 1,500 ft
    PACE:[masked] mph
    DIFFICULTY: Mostly moderate but strenuous on the uphill climbs

    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.
