Perimeter, Buck Mountain and Roemer's Trails - Silver Falls SP

A full day of adventure. A long (12.5-13 mile) hike in the backcountry of Silver Falls State Park.  We will do the entire length of the Perimeter Trail, come back down on the Buck Mountain Trail and reconnect to the bottom of the Perimeter Trail via the Roemer's Meadow Trail.  A bit under 2000 feet elevation gain. This will be a 7 hour hike with lunch break and snack breaks.  Bring plenty of water and expect a long day of hiking with no realistic way to shorten the hike once committed.  Much of the hike is in forest shade.  $5 daily parking fee or OR Park pass.  Please contact leader by text if interested in joining.  Meeting place and time relayed to participants a couple of days prior to the event.  Group size limited to eight.
