Mount Tabor Sunset Meander (a walk), Sunday October 11

15556446926_77d123c966_kHello friends, Walktober is upon us! Every year, I’ve done a walk for this celebration. And my walk is coming up this weekend! Maybe you’ll join me?



meet at SEVEN VIRTUES COFFEE, 5936 NE Glisan St

We’ll ascend the Eastside’s highest point, Mount Tabor (643 ft/196 m), from the lesser known “North Slope” using sidewalks, stairways, and secret paths. From the summit, we’ll watch the (hoped-for) sun set over the city. Then we’ll descend via the “back side” of Tabor into the Montavilla neighborhood where we can eat some food and enjoy adult beverages.

Walk not a loop, but there will be transit options available at the end. Sunset on Oct 11 is 6:32 pm, though the West Hills will mean it will set for us a bit earlier. Start point (Seven Virtues) accessible via MAX (Red/Green/Blue Lines, 60th Ave Station) and the 19 and 71 buses.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not depart Seven Virtues until 4:30!

SPECIAL NOTE: The weather forecast for Sunday is iffy. If it’s raining, we won’t linger long at the top, and just continue on to Montavilla.

I love to hear from you! Please note that all comments are manually moderated. I usually approve comments within 48 hours.
