Cheadle Lake McDowell Falls

We will do two short hikes.  Cheadle Lake is just east of Lebanon.  The hike around the lake is 2 level miles on a paved path.  McDowell Creek Park (north east of Lebanon) features 3 waterfalls, two of which should be quite impressive in Feb.  This trail is steep in places and may have muddy areas.  Poles are recommended.  Come prepared for winter weather.  Contact leader after Feb 14 at 503-507-7844.
