Horse Rock Ridge

Hoping for some good weather so we can take our time on this short scenic hike through a forest area which should yield a generous display of trillium and Calypso Orchids with slight hope of early wildflowers in the open areas.  Great views from the ridge.  There are some steep sections and some potentially slippery spots so good traction footwear and trekking poles are recommended.  Please come prepared for Oregon spring weather.
