Senior Healthy Hikers @ Gresham City Hall
Mar 20 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Senior Healthy Hikers – Milo McIver State Park Riverside Loop Hike

  • Round-trip travel: 38 miles
  • Distance: 5 miles
  • Difficulty: Moderate
  • Elevation gain: 480 feet
  • Suggested donation per rider: $4 (plus share of $5 parking fee)

We will start the hike close to the Clackamas River by the fish hatchery that raises Steelhead and Spring Chinook. We’ll continue on an old logging road up through the forest to a view point area that overlooks the Clackamas River. From the view point we’ll cross an off-leash dog area to a bat-viewing area, before heading down through the forest to the Rivermill Reservoir. We will continue along the river back to the parking area. Bring a sack lunch, water and snacks. Sturdy hiking shoes are recommended. If it has been rainy, hiking poles might be helpful in spots.

Trail conditions: Wide trails (easy for two to walk side-by-side) and old logging road in some areas. Dirt with gravel in some areas, can be muddy. The trail is a multi-use trail also used by mountain bikes and horses. Elevation gain is a fairly steep upgrade, then levels off for a while before going down. Grade going down seems a little more gradual than the grade going up.

For more information about this hike please contact Dave Tripp at 503-655-0465 or dtripp@comcast.net or Becky Tripp at 503-754-2851 or trippr2016@comcast.net.

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.

Image result for aa big bookAlcoholics Anonymous Big Book Study.
Alcoholics Anonymous (or the ‘Big Book’ as it is commonly called) was first published in 1939 and was subtitled The Story of How Many Thousands of Men and Women Have Recovered from Alcoholism. It is the first text written about the experiences of the founders of the A.A. movement. It tells the story of Bill W., one of the co-founders of A.A. and how the program worked in the early days of the movement. It is full of much timeless and practical wisdom and is the first standard (and some would say the only standard) text of A.A. and, subsequently, of 12 step programs.

Senior Healthy Hikers – Trail of Shrines Hike @ Gresham City Hall
Mar 26 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 am

Senior Healthy Hikers – Trail of Shrines Hike

 

  • Round-trip travel: 80 miles
  • Distance: 3 miles
  • Difficulty: Easy/moderate
  • Elevation gain: 250 feet
  • Suggested donation per rider: $8

This hike begins at 880 feet on the slopes of Dixie Mountain, where in 1936 the Vedanta Society of Portland, a Hindu organization, purchased 120 acres. In 1954 the Society built the first Hindu temple in the Pacific Northwest on this property. A web of meditative trails lead to eight shrines representing the world’s major religions. The Native American shrine is the largest, built to resemble a gigantic crouched
eagle and spans almost 50 feet from wing tip to wing tip. We’ll hike to all the shrines, hidden in the forest, and explore some of the clear-cut areas overlooking South Scappoose Valley. Sturdy hiking shoes and poles are recommended. Dress for the weather and bring water and snacks. We will have lunch at Fultanos Pizza in Scappoose (salad bar, pasta, pizza, sandwiches, ice cream, and more).

For more information about this hike please contact Ruth Cummings at 503-926-4840 or cummings0465@frontier.com or Ron Janzen at 503-333-8419 or ronjanzen1@me.com.
