Upcoming Classics Hikes and Climbs 

Tuesday, Oct. 9: 4T Trail Hike (Train, Trail, Tram, Trolley)

Meet at 9:30 a.m. at the Oregon Zoo by the 4T trail kiosk, near the east end of the MAX elevator. You can buy a MAX all day pass here, which is valid for the tram and the trolley. From the zoo, we will follow the 4T signs on the forested Trail. This Trail is about 4.1 miles long and has about 800 feet of elevation gain. Dress for the weather and wear good shoes—there could be some mud. With luck and good weather, we could have some great views from the top of Council Crest and some nice fall colors. This hike will take about 3 hours. Bring water and snacks. From the Trail, we will emerge at OHSU. From there, we will take the Tram down to the south waterfront. This will take about 3 minutes. Next, we will take the Trolley from the waterfront to downtown Portland where we will transfer to the MAX Train for the trip back to the zoo. We will pick a place for lunch on this trip. At OHSU, we will walk by their cafeteria or there are many fine places downtown. Hope for good weather!

Leader: Buzz Lindahl. Please call my cell phone, (503)781-8956, or email me at and let me know if you plan to attend.
