This round-trip, approximately 5.2-mile hike will begin at the West Linn Adult Community Center on Rosemont Road and go to Luscher Farm at the corner of Rosemont Road and Stafford Road.

Rosemont Trail follows along Rosemont Road, offset from the road by varying distances. The trail is paved all the way, with no impediments, and is wide enough to easily allow two hikers to walk side-by-side all the way, i.e., making it easy to visit with fellow hikers during the trek.

The trail abuts West Linn city limits shortly before entering the rural Stafford area. After leaving West Linn city limits, the trail passes a former Street of Dreams development in the near distance, the Oswego Hills winery, and the beautiful rural areas of Stafford, turning around at Luscher Farm community gardens, which are open to the public and have a port-a-potty available and an open farmhouse to visit.

We will have lunch afterwards at McMenamins in West Linn. Wear comfortable walking or hiking shoes and bring water and snacks.

Note: Hikers should meet at Gresham City Hall at 9:00 am and sign in with Doug and Dana Duval. David and Becky will meet the group at the West Linn Adult Community Center, where restroom facilities are available.

For more information about this hike please contact David or Becky Tripp at 503-655-0465 or dtripp8785@comcast.net.

The historic Irvington area is one of Portlands most beautiful neighborhoods. More than 75 homes have been designated as historically significant, ranging from Mediterranean mansions to English cottages to Prairie Craftsmansome having been turned into B&Bs.

Irvington is an early example of a streetcar suburb; it contains the largest, most diverse, and intact collections of Queen Anne, Arts and Crafts, and Colonial Revival style residences in the city of Portland, as well as the state of Oregon. In 2010, Irvington was designated an historic district and was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Our walk will be about 3.5 to 4.0 miles long, with a chance to view many of the historic homes and at least eight heritage trees. Its a flat and comfortable walk, but you may wish to bring some water and a snack. We have also arranged for a guided tour of the Westminster Episcopalian Church, where the pew cushions are hand needlepoint(ed) and they match the beautiful stained glass windows. Finally, we will stop at the Broadway Grill and Brewery to satisfy our hunger and quench our thirst.
