This short evening walk of about 3 miles, 500' elevation gain was originally to be combined with another event posted on the Sierra Club Columbia Group's site:
http://www.meetup.com/Portland-Sierra-Club-Columbia-Group-Meetup/events/171018142/; however, the date of that event was changed by its sponsors. We'll still do the walk as most of you did not sign up for the talk in any case.
We'll walk up SW Salmon, past the MAC to SW Park Place and up through Washington Park and the Japanese Gardens to the Wildwood Trail--as far as we can get until we need to turn around to be back by 6:45. Enjoy some of the early spring blooms!
Meet near the corner of SW 12th and Salmon for the walk. Look for Sierra Club sign.
Even though this is an urban hike, I suggest you still dress in quick-drying layers and bring the 10 essentials. Please don't wear jeans or other cotton.
The Mazamas ask for a $2 donation for their urban hikes. Since ours is half their usual distance, I'll suggest a $1.00 donation. Some of us may want to go to dinner together after the hike, so bring money for that too.
