March 11, 2017 - SW Trails March Walk


Dave Manville will lead the walk.  From Wilson High School the group will walk West mostly along the route of SW Trail #3 through several natural areas and parks to the new April Hill Park Natural Area where everyone can check out the the new overlook wetland viewing stand.  The group will return via the Natural Area trail back through the park and return to Wilson High School via Multnomah Village. The walk is about 6 miles with about 300 feet elevation gain.

Meet behind the bleachers, near the food carts, at Wilson High School (SW Sunset Blvd. and SW Capitol Highway) and be ready to go by 9:00 am.  Well behaved dogs are allowed and must be on leash.  For health reasons, there is no smoking on SW Trails walks.

For more information, or to volunteer to lead a walk in your neighborhood, contact Sharon Fekety (
