On a awesome sunny August day thirteen lucky Obsidians left SEHS in three vehicles and headed south for Cottage Grove, took the 174 exit, then drove past Dorena Lake on Row River Road, bearing right to Disston and finally meeting at trailhead #1403 after deciding the shuttle arrangements.
There was shade most of the way provided by the lush canopy of douglas fir and red cedar. We inspected the 150 foot bridge that led to Cedar Creek Campground, then continued on the main trail, all the while enjoying the bubbling creek.
We came to flat rocks along the creek and stopped to rest, then on to a place by the creek where we had “lunch on the rocks.” We went as far as Lund Park Campground where we then shuttled back to the trailhead.
Thanks to all for a good time!
