Eugene, East Hills

January 7, 1989

On a chilly but dry January morning, nine hikers took the trail paralleling Fairmount Blvd. up to the rhododendron gardens. Nothing in bloom other than an unidentified vine with one tiny, five-petaled purple flower found by Miki. Our route then went south along the ridge (but not along the ridgeline trail, now blocked by a wire fence and a “Private Property — Beware of Dog” sign) to the Lodge. First-time Lodge visitors received a tour, and we all enjoyed Norm Benton’s new photography exhibit. Back to the leader’s house for lunch via trails around Laurelwood Golf Course. Happy hikers were Mary Pat Adair, Glenn Aplin, Miki Hutchison, Thaddeus Jozwiak, Carrie McClish, Mary Millman, Carmen Olsen, Gerda Range, and Karen Seidel (leader). (Note: Marriner Orum believes the property owner who closed the trail may have done so because of trail bikes. There was plenty of evidence that bikes are inflicting considerable damage to Hendricks Park-area trails.)
