Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge
It's time to do an autumn walk on this trail which closes for the year at the end of this month. The loop goes through a wooded area and around a wetlands where we can usually see several types of waterfowl. This isn't an official bird walk, but you may want binoculars. If it's a nice day, lunch on the deck of Tree's restaurant in nearby Sherwood is a possibility. The refuge opens at 10, so this won't be a crack-of-dawn departure. Call or email by Sept. 5 to register (no texts please).
Hiking Distance: 4 miles RT.
Elevation Gain: Very little except for one small hill which is optional
Driving Distance: 72 miles RT.
