Thank you, Betty, for forwarding the info from www.OutdoorDads.org. Family hikes are every fourth Saturday of the month, which means that this month's family hike is this Saturday, March 25th:
Greetings OutdoorDads and friends,
Happy spring, everyone! Wowzer, has this been a soggy winter, or what? Ready for some sunshine? Me too. Well, no promises for this coming weekend, but keep your fingers crossed. We’re going on a hike this coming fourth Saturday of the month (March 25), and you and your favorite little person(s) are invited. We'll stroll the trails of Tryon Creek State Park, in SW Portland near Lewis and Clark College. While we’re primarily a dad’s group, moms are also welcome on this outing.
This easy hike features about 2-3 miles and about 400 feet of elevation gain, along meandering trails and a forested creek. The main attraction is the sense of calmness and seclusion that’s hard to come by in the midst of a major urban area. The plush trailhead amenities include a visitor’s center, bathrooms and picnic tables. Driving time is about 15 minutes from Portland city center – the closest hike we do. Plan on bringing shoes and clothes that can stand a bit of mud.
For complete hike details, driving directions to the trailhead and more, please see the outings page on the OutdoorDads web site.
If you’d like to go on this hike, all you need to do is show up on Saturday morning at the trailhead and be ready to hike at 11:00 sharp. There’s no need to sign up in advance, RSVP, or any of that stuff. (As leaving the house with a kid always takes more time then you think, please plan for this on Saturday morning.)
Please feel free to pass this email along to any outdoorsy-minded friends with kids that you think might be interested. If you can make it this Saturday, we’d love to see you.
