McKenzie River Trail

May 11, 2010

We started from Amazon Community Center with one car of four people. There was a little mist on the windshield the nearer we got to our destination. We started from the McKenzie Bridge Ranger Station with the threat of rain but completed our trip without a shower. Our destination was Belknap Springs and along the way we spotted many calypso orchids, some dogwood and a few trilliums. The trail was muddy, in spots, but nothing obstructing our hike. At the springs we ate under cover as again we had a fine mist. After lunch we strolled around the grounds admiring all the flowers and the property, in general. It is a lovely spot and well maintained.

In warmer weather one can bring their swim suit and swim all day for $12. This trip can also be done by LTD bus. We had a congenial group that conversed about a variety of topics—mainly food.

Hikers were Daniele Delaby, Sachiko Kolwasaki, John Moser and Sandra Larsen, leader.
