Hiking during COVID-19 pandemic

  • All participants must wear facial masks and practice social distancing during Senior Healthy Hikers group events.
  • We will no longer carpool to the trailhead. Participants are responsible for their own transportation.
  • Driving directions (with the beginning point at Gresham City Hall) will be distributed at least three days prior to the event.

Hike details

  • Distance: 3.5 miles
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Elevation gain: Minimal
  • Trail conditions: Packed dirt through forest, some gravel
  • Round-trip travel: Approximately 16 miles

Since weather at the end of December is unpredictable and possibly icy, this out-and-back hike is appropriate because it.s level, but is still a nice walk through a forest on both sides of the trail. If the weather cooperates, we can take a side trail that has some ups and downs. As always, keep the weather in mind and bring poles, as needed. Sturdy hiking boots and, of course, appropriate clothing are also highly recommended. You will probably want to bring water and snacks.Unfortunately, there are no restroom facilities at the trailhead and since Boring is a very small town, there are no fast food restaurants or supermarkets, so please take appropriate measures prior to your arrival.Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, lunch will have to be decided closer to the hike date. We.ll get something out with the driving directions a few days prior to the hike. A local restaurant in Boring called Red Apple serves American and Chinese food. They have booths for four, and as of mid-October, every other one is closed off for safety. They open at 11:00 for lunch, so those who want to go will be the first ones in and can choose appropriate seating. Those not wanting to eat indoors can choose to have a brown-bag tailgate at the trail.
