Write Up:
For the second straight year we had a great day for the hike and breakfast. With temps in the mid 50ís and no rain, could not ask for anything else this time of year. We arrived at the start of the Pancake Breakfast which meant we had no problems getting 2 tables together. We all enjoyed the Pancakes with Maple Syrup made from the maple trees in the park. We finish breakfast and still had time to browse around looking at the various raffle items and things for sale, before we started the hike. While we were waiting to start the hike, we ran into the Sierra Club that also planned to hike the same time as us. With both groups having about 20 hikers, I meet with the hike leader of the Sierra Club to determine which route they planned to take. Since their planned route was the same as mine, I decided to reverse the direction of my route so the 2 groups would stay separated and not impact the trail too badly.

With the record snow fall this year, Oregon Ridge Park still had plenty of snow of the ground. That ended up being a good thing as it kept the trails from being really muddy. We completed the hike around 11am.

Thanks to all who came out. I had a great time and Oregon Ridge raised a little money to help support the Nature Center, trail maintenance, and educational activities.
