We will begin at the Estacada Community Center and head downhill to follow a paved path that leads to Timber Park. At the turnaround, well head back and uphill to "City Hall Plaza" for a break. After our break, well zig zag through town to see "The Tree of Life," "Early Trains of Estacada," and "The Longhouse," to name a few of the famous murals that chronicle the story of the Pacific Northwest. Along the way, we'll tour the Estacada Veterans Memorial Garden before checking out the shops on both sides of Broadway.
