Upcoming Classics Hikes


An A-1 hike: 1.8 miles round trip with 160 feet elevation gain. This is an interesting hike that is on a paved road that goes through the Mosier tunnels.  The initials of those marooned in the tunnel during a snow storm are carved on a rock at the mouth of the tunnel.  Windows carved in the walls of the tunnel give views of the river. We will leave the MMC at 10 a.m. Leader:  Flora Huber,, 503-816-5713 


On Friday, August 31 we will have our annual Lodge Luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Contact the MMC (503-227-2345) or email to reserve your spot. We will have carpools meet at the MMC at 10 a.m.  If you want to carpool, mention that when you register (either as a rider or a driver).


From David Christopher, “If there is a group of Classics who are interested in my organizing and leading a cultural/hiking outing to Bhutan, they should send me an email so that we can meet in advance to select a time and plan a hiking itinerary what would meet all their interests and needs. I have guided over 30 groups to Bhutan since 1982.” Email David Christopher for details, registration and updates.
