    Located just on the far side of the Clackamas River off HWY 99E/ McLoughlin Boulevard, Clackamette Park celebrates the union of the Clackamas and Willamette Rivers just within the nearby town of Oregon City (~25 drive from downtown PDX). Many ducks, geese, crows and pigeons can be seen begging for handouts at the boat ramp. We’ll walk a three mile loop featuring two Clackamas River bridges, three parks and the infamous historic “Pow Wow Tree” in the adjoining neighborhood. Much of this walk will be on well-groomed wide trails in the wild greenspace that featured in the news over the summer when a railroad bridge collapsed (now removed). This area has haunting industrial remnants as well as the wild natural beauty inherent in this river. View popular but deadly High Rocks Park from the (now) pedestrian bridge. This trail also overlooks Clackamette lake which is not signed and therefore retains obscurity despite being arguably the best warm summer swimming hole in the greater Portland area. Wear stabilizing active footwear such as sneakers, hiking boots or Tevas. Bring water or snacks as needed. Friendly dogs are welcome on leash. If you like bring info on a new diet fad or health tip to share and evaluate. This walk has many medicinal plants to potentially identify.
    This loop walk is about 3 miles and will take an hour to an hour and a half, but allow the two hour window due to any view breaks or general group lag. This should be fun! Let’s take a walk! Contact organizer Dr. Mindy Curry at[masked] for more information. Meet/park near the restrooms located straight in towards the boat ramp and to the left from the Clackamette Park entrance. From 99E cross the bridge across the Clackamas River into Oregon City, then take a right on the first street just past McDonalds across from the strip mall. Take the first right, then turn left into Clackamette Park. 1955 Clackamette Dr, Oregon City, OR 97045. If you want to carpool from some distant part of town, then leave a comment on the meet-up page and we’ll try to find someone going your way.
