What else you should know

Please dress for the weather. We'll hike rain or shine! Although never more than 20-30 minutes from the nearest fountain or W/C, it’s good to bring water. Street shoes are OK unless it's really wet.

What I’ll provide

Drinks
Hot tea is offered at the Arboretum visitor center (if open); drinking fountains are available there and at Pittock Mansion.
