Moon Mountain

Sunday, January 27, 2013
Leader: Janet Jacobsen
Hike: 2 miles, 300 ft (Easy)

It took 5000 steps to complete the two mile loop to the top of Moon Mountain Park (945’ high) and down the other side to Laurel Hill City Park . It was a “curious group” with lots of questions. When we started the hike near the vacant lots of the East Ridge area, we wondered what happened to the developer? From the top of Moon Mountain, we tried to identify the features of the confluence of the Willamette Rivers. Those questions were answered in timely articles in the Monday's Register Guard. None of us knew how Moon Mountain got its name or when the city made it a park. May suggested that Moon Mountain would be a good place to view the August Moon coming up in the east. It was a perfect hike for a rainy Sunday afternoon.
