Whittaker Creek (Old Growth) Trail
July 20, 1994
We left Eugene at the civilized hour of 9 a.m. under an already hot sun
that promised an even hotter day.
A slight breeze and almost continuous shade was welcome as we climbed through
the old growth and the 900-foot elevation gain to the top of the ridge.
The strategically located benches along the trail were appreciated.
The coastal old growth was impressive as was the clean, well maintained and
totally uncrowded campground at Whittaker Creek.
After the hike we rewarded ourselves with lunch at the Alpha Bit in Mapleton.
Hikers were Helen Liguori, Trish Kocher, Mary Millman, Marilyn Murdock,
Gail Weisman and leader Royal Murdock.
