Perimeter Trail - Silver Falls State Park

Perimeter Trail is a lush forested "backcountry" trail that will take us away from the Silver Falls crowds. We'll ascend into an old growth forest to the Perimeter-Rackett Ridge Trail Junction where we'll have lunch before returning the way we came. There are NO waterfalls on this trail but we'll take the short spur to Upper North Falls to see one on our return. Bring water and lunch. Carpool from the State Motor Pool Park and Ride lot, 1100 Airport Rd SE.  Pre-register for departure time.
