Row River Trail

Friday, February 27, 2009
Leader: Sandra Larsen
Hike: 10.6 miles, 200 ft (Difficult)

The five day weather forecast predicted rain every day except Friday. How's that for planning? The seven of us left Eugene, in two cars, for Cottage Grove. Our hike along this "rails to trails" route passes farms, woods and Dorena Lake for a nice midwinter hike. We made it to our lunch spot in about two hours, seeing some heron along the way as well as horses, and hearing the crow of a rooster in the distance. After lunch me met the Black Labrador from last year's trip. He followed us all the way back to the parking lot and then took up with some bicyclists. Our return to the cars was a little faster---1 hour 40 minutes which gave us time to stop in downtown Cottage Grove for coffee and pastries at Fleur de Lis, the new French patisserie. A must stop, in my opinion. We returned in time so those going to the potluck had time to cook their dish.
