And so it begins! The first day of 2020 marked the start of our third year of intentionally going on at least one hike per month. Per the usual, we started in Forest Park. This time, however, we went to a more remote location and essentially made up our own loop heavily featuring Firelane 15!
On the first day of the New Year, we ventured up to Forest Park and hiked around for a couple of hours. We started at the Lower Macleay Trailhead in Northwest Portland (note: parking can be challenging in this area, so mentally prepare yourself for it).
Our first year of monthly hikes is in the books! Now feels like a great time to reflect on all of the beautiful places that we have explored this year…
We started the year in “America’s Premier Urban Forest” (their website says it so it MUST be true), also known as Forest Park. We found ourselves on the Ridge Trail Loop, with a handful of other folks that didn’t mind the somewhat slippery conditions, after quite a rainy couple of weeks.
