This is one borrowed from the incomparable PDX Hiking 365 written by Matt Reeder as a great fall hike.
If weather allows, we will get started at 8am sharp meeting at Gateway Transit Center. We will then carpool down to the Old Baldy Trailhead and begin our journey first with a summit of scenic Tumala Mountain and then down and onward to Plaza lake. The whole trip will be about 10 miles out and back with spectacular views and meadows.
Bring 3 liters of water, your 10 essentials, and a good attitude. Hopefully we'll have nice weather and some great scenery!
