Opal Creek Hike Sunday June 15th 2014

This is it – the weather we wait for all year! Last month I hit Eagle Creek in the Gorge for the first time this year. Here is why it is one of my favorites…

Next up Opal Creek on Sunday June 15th (Father’s Day weekend). This will be my first time here so it will be a new adventure for me. There is a 4 mile and a 7 mile option and both trails run along the river and include beautiful scenery. We are headed just east of Salem so expect a 90 minute to 2 hour drive. We will be carpooling from Sellwood so contact me for our ETD and other details.

As with any wilderness hike please click the link above to familiarize yourself with this trail. REI recommends you pack the “Hiker’s Ten”.

There is no charge for this hike. There is a $5 parking fee at the trailhead. Call Anne with questions or to let her know you will be joining our group. (503) 705-4762
