January Bark About Hike

Date: 
Sunday, January 11, 2015 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

Join us for our January Bark About to a low elevation forest in the Still Creek area of Mt. Hood National Forest.  The Flag Mountain trail not only includes great views of the Mountain and surrounding forest, but it also provides an opportunity to see how old roads can be converted to beautiful hiking trails! Still Creek has seen some innovative salmon habitat restoration since logging was pushed out of the area by local forest and tribal activists in the late 1990s.  Come and learn about Bark’s advocacy work in the area, as well as what’s at stake in other parts of the forest!

Please be prepared to hike up to 4 miles round trip, on mostly even terrain over the course of the day.  Bring lunch, water, and whatever else you need to feel comfortable. Don't forget to bring raingear, extra layers of clothes and boots. To protect off-trail resources, we ask that you leave your dog at home.

Carpools will meet at the Hollywood Trader Joe's, 4121 NE Halsey in Portland at 9am sharp. It is across the street from the Hollywood Transit Center, near the I-84 exit 2. If you are able to drive, we greatly appreciate your contribution to helping make a successful hike. If you are looking for a ride, please come prepared to reimburse your driver. If you would like to try to arrange a meet up closer to the forest, please contact the Bark office the week before the hike.

Bark offers free, monthly hikes to Mt. Hood National Forest and surrounding public lands which are led by passionate, knowledgeable volunteers. Call Bark at 503-331-0374 for more details and information.
