New Year's Day Salem Hike

Hopefully the weather will cooperate with us for this New Year’s Day hike. We’ll walk around Bush Park and then head over to Willamette University and walk along the Mill Race. We’ll follow the Mill Race as it flows through Pringle Plaza and then walk to Riverfront Park.  Then we’ll check out where Pringle Creek and the Shelton Ditch meet near Pringle Park before we return to our starting point. After the hike those who are interested can go to the Governor’s Cup to have a warm beverage and possibly a treat. Please pre-register by noon 4 PM the day before the hike to find out the meeting place.  We may have to cancel if the weather is bad.
