Hello 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?
MOUNT TABOR SUNSET MEANDER
SUNDAY 11 OCTOBER, 4 PM
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.
