April Victory Bark About to the Clackamas Palomar Pipe Line Crossing

Time to celebrate with a Victory Hike to visit the extinct Palomar Pipeline Crossing! Martin, Carolyn, and little Ursula Evans will be leading this family-friendly hike along the route of the Palomar Pipeline and where it would have crossed the Clackamas River. That is if it wasn't stopped! Come learn about the history of the campaign and what it took to bring this massive project to a halt.
Sunday, April 10th, 9:00 am

Please bring lunch, water, and sturdy boots. The weather is very unpredictable this time of year, so don't forget extra layers of clothes and water resistant gear. And as we are inviting children on this month's hike we ask that folks leave their dogs at home.

Carpools will meet at the Hollywood Trader Joe's, 4121 NE Halsey in Portland at 9am sharp. It is across the street from the Hollywood Transit Center, near the I-84 exit 2. If you are able to drive, we greatly appreciate your contribution to helping make a successful hike. If you are looking for a ride, please come prepared to reimburse your driver. If you would like to try to arrange a meet up closer to the forest, please contact the Bark office the week before the hike.

Since the beginning, Bark has offered free, monthly hikes to Mt. Hood National Forest and other surrounding public lands. We believe that by witnessing the breathtaking Cascade ecosystem and learning about the many threats facing it, we can build stronger advocates for the protection of our public lands. Our hike leaders are passionate, knowledgeable volunteers who incorporate information about forest ecology and policy with how to get involved in our efforts!
