  • Round-trip travel: by MAX light rail
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Elevation gain: Nominal
  • Suggested donation per hiker: All-day MAX ticket + ZooLights Admission (see details below)

For the 28th year, the Oregon Zoo invites visitors to brighten their nights at ZooLights, where more than 1.6 million brightly colored lights transform the zoo into a walk through a winter wonderland. In addition, we may be able to catch a glimpse of Nora, the playful year-old polar bear cub who arrived at the Oregon Zoo a few months ago.

Well travel by MAX to Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery for happy hour and dinner. After eating, we'll re-board MAX and travel to the zoo stop, where we will disembark and walk to the Oregon Zoo. The price of the Value Night ZooLights ticket is $9.95 for those under age 65 or $7.95 for age 65+; however, if you show your MAX ticket at the entrance gate, you will receive a $1.50 discount on the admission price. Once inside, you are free to wander among the ZooLights either with the group or on your own. The total walking distance will probably be less than 3 miles. We will meet in front of the gift shop at 8:00 PM to gather for the MAX ride back to Gresham.

Park your car at the City Hall MAX Station and purchase your all-day MAX ticket ($5 for those under age 65 or $2.50 for age 65+) in advance so that we can all board the train shortly after 3:30 p.m.

Please note: if the weather forecast for December 7 is decidedly nasty, this walk may be changed to one of the remaining ZooLights Value Nights. If a change is made, you will be notified by email

For more information about this hike please contact Bob or Karen Holman at 503-661-7010 or krholman@gmail.com.

Senior Healthy Hikers asks that participants be 50 or older. A couple wishing to hike is welcome if one member of the couple is 50 or better.

Pets are not permitted on our hikes or walks.

One spring morning in 2007, Lee Dayfield took her dog for a walk. As she passed an empty field, she saw a sign that would forever change her life. It read “for sale.”

The desolate plot of grass sat next to 10 acres ringed by a chain-link fence and barbed wire. Where others may have seen a $900,000 meadow, Dayfield saw a two-acre opportunity: a nature-based play area for the Gresham neighborhood’s children, many of them Native American.
