Brice Creek

May 10, 2008

On an overcast but dry day nine hikers met for an 8-mile hike at Brice Creek. The plan was for a car shuttle so we started hiking at the upper trailhead, climbing 900 feet in a mile until we got to Upper Trestle Creek Falls. We were rewarded for our effort with a lovely view of the falls. After walking behind the falls we headed downhill and then stopped for lunch on a rock outcropping by the creek. There was more water going over the falls and in the creek than I have ever seen before and we hated to leave that scenic lunch spot. After a short side trip to Lower Trestle Creek Falls we headed downstream enjoying the wildflowers along the way. We saw Calypso, bleeding hearts, wild geraniums, white wild iris, numerous types of ground cover and the last of the trilliums. After shuttling cars we set off for Eugene, arriving back in town at about 4:30 p.m. The hikers were members Daniele Delaby, Walt Dolliver, Chuck Eyers, Sachiko Iwasaki, Susan Sanazaro, Sue Wolling, non-members Pam Swisher and Ron Swisher, and leader Joanne Ledet.
