What we're about
Upcoming events (4)
Let's get out and enjoy a beautiful evening hike. We will hike about 4.5 miles at a moderate/brisk pace around 3 mph. There is an option to exit the hike after about 3 miles. The hike has good sized hills with a couple of short steep sections. There could be some muddy trails so you may want to bring an extra pair of shoes. I do not recommend this hike for beginners. We will hike around some of the old Powder Company ruins near the river. You may want to bring water and trekking poles.
Participate at your own risk.

FREE PARKING: Parking at meters on all the streets around Newport on the Levee is free on Sundays. The best place to park is at the parking meters on Riverboat Row. Turn north on Park Ave from Rt. 8. Go about 50 yards and turn left (west) on Riverboat Row. Be sure to park at a meter on the left side of the street, not in the other open areas. There also is plenty of free parking on York and Monmoth Sts. very close to the Aquarium.
The hike will be the typical seven miles and take from 2 to 2.5 hours. We will head across the Taylor-Southgate Bridge or sometimes get an extra mile in over to the Suspension Bridge and the murals, walk out east around the pickleball courts and up the stairs to Mt. Adams and loop back through Eden Park. We will walk past Krohn Conservatory, Playhouse in the Park and up the Art Museum stairs. I try to find a different route back through Mt. Adams to the Aquarium each Sunday.
For those of you who have not done this hike before, there are several long sets of stairs and hills and we walk at a moderate pace, so it is not just a stroll. You will know you have hiked at the end. We make a couple of brief stops at the top of stairs. If anyone is getting tired, they can turn back after our break at Krohn Conservatory. We pass several public bathrooms with water available along the way.
