Write Up:
What a great day for a hike. The sun was bright and tempís just right for an early March hike. Oregon Ridge Park put on a nice pancake breakfast with maple syrup made from the trees in the park. A few of the eager hikers showed up early and started the day off right at the pancakes and maple syrup breakfast. With 23 MOC hikers and 6 dogs gathering at the Nature Center, it was not hard to spot us. Trail conditions were fairly nice, just some mud but no ice. Thankfully they upgraded the tree bridge crossing, making it easy and safe to cross.

While hiking, Glen organized a gathering at Padonia Station for some grub and drinks. Thanks Glen, the food was great and a perfect way to cap off such a nice day.
