Amazon Headwaters to Dillard Road

January 10, 2007

For the second time this winter Mother Nature foiled plans to hike along the McKenzie River Trail. After checking forecasts the night before and again in the morning, I decided once again it would be wise to cancel. So instead, because we really wanted to get out and hike, Sue Myers, Pat Soussan and yours truly met at Albertson’s and drove to the end of E. Amazon. We hiked up the connector trail to the Ridgeline Trail. At that point we opted to take the trail to Dillard Road. As we headed back we met a hiker coming up the bike trail. His opinion was that the trail wasn’t too muddy and he recommended it. Hah! At least no-one fell or got stuck in the mud! The spreading oaks covered in fresh licorice ferns are a highlight of the bike trail and by the time we returned to the Fox Hollow parking lot it was snowing heavily and the snow on the sword ferns created a winter wonderland. Margaret Prentice, leader.
