We will meet at Parking Lot #1 of Minto-Brown Park, walk toward downtown and over the Peter Courtney Minto Island Bridge. We’ll continue through Riverfront Park to the Union Street Railroad Bridge and enjoy views of the river while crossing to Wallace Marine Park. We will generally retrace our steps back to Minto Brown, perhaps making a side trip for coffee if weather allows for sitting outside.
A nice walk on mostly asphalt.
This trail offers a gentle walk through Willamette River woodlands and fields. There are 3 loops to explore, some possibly wetter and muddier than others, but all will have that lovely wet-leaves and river scent and a chance to stretch your legs without having to drive miles and miles to do it.
We will be walking through Salem "discovering" buildings designed by architect W.D. Pugh in the late 1800‘s-early 1900‘s. The history is based on a Zoom presentation and book recently published by Mr. Pugh‘s
Beautiful hike in beautiful Bald Hill area.
Portland area John‘s Landing to Sellwood on Willamette River.
We will hike about 8 miles on the beach and the Tillamook bay shore at the site of "the town that fell into the sea". With a fortunate tide, it‘s an easy hike on an often near-deserted beach. If the tide is in, we will do some cris-crossing of the spit. Van transport available for up to seven fully vaccinated hikers. Contact Martin (text or email preferred) for details.
Calloway Creek Trail Loop and Cronemiller Lake
One of my favorite backcountry Silver Falls hikes.
We will hike the Silver Falls loop and return to Coleman house in Silverton for potluck.
Get some hilly exercises in a lovely area of Salem.
Peavy Arboretum is a real gem close to home.
This is an easy hike in Skinner Butte park and along the Willamette River.
Great trail with beautiful view at the top.
A morning walk through two cemeteries and up and down some steep hills.
Plan ahead! This early fall 2022 excursion will trek along the famous Alta Via 1 trail in the Italian Dolomites. We need to book early to get favorable accommodations. Projected cost for this 10 day trip is $1475 (does not include airfare, but does cover lodging and most meals). Because we do not need to carry food or tents, this will be more like a series of day hikes, each 5 to 10 miles in length. The trip will be booked through Macs Adventures, a Scottish travel agency I have used for other European treks.
