Silver Falls

Saturday, September 1, 2012
Leader: Tom Musselwhite
Hike: 7 miles, 600 ft (Moderate)

Seven of us met up at the rendezvous for our departure. A couple of old trail hands and several soon to be new Members loaded up for the drive up to Silver Falls State Park. We met up at the South Falls Lodge and agreed to shuttle up to North Falls and hike back. The water was low, but only one falls, Winter Falls was reported dry. The day was great for the hike down the canyon. When we first arrived, foot traffic was light. As the day progressed the trail filled up with young families, teens, and various groups preparing for back to school by getting in one last outdoor activity. It was still easy to find a quiet spot along the creek for lunch. We all enjoyed a great day, I hope everyone enjoyed the day as much as I did. For a Labor Day, the Interstate traffic was light in the morning, but heavy on the ride home with lots of people apparently heading for the Ducks' season opener. Special thanks to long time Obsidian Marc Hansen for getting me to the departure point that morning.

Members: Tom Musselwhite, Steve Gunn, Sue Meyers. Nonmembers: Veronica Karpiak, Nancy Matthews, Marilyn Goodsell, Shan Ambika.
