Ridgeline Trail

Saturday, April 8, 2017
Leader: Janet Jacobsen
Hike: 6.2 miles (Moderate)

The reason to lead this hike early in April is the display of trilliums, fawn lilies, hounds tongue and calypso orchids. High winds the previous day left the trail blanketed with branches. It was hard for Carla and me not to use our poles to flick the branches off the trail. We soon had to abandon our need to tidy up and catch up with the other hikers. We were pleased to see that two major root wad holes had been repaired with rocks and gravel by Eugene Parks and Open Space staff. Thanks to John Jacobsen who facilitated the car shuttle by dropping us off at the Blanton Trailhead to begin our walk back to the Spring Trailhead and our cars.

Members: Janet Jacobsen, Lana Lindstrom, Carla Cooper, Randy Sinnott, Jorry Rolfe.
