Upcoming Events


Waverly Wildflower Hike

Saturday, April 13, 8:15 am to 3:00 pm

Organizer: Laura Ocker

Hike with us! Meet at the church (3300 SE Woodward) at 8:15 a.m. on Saturday, April 13. Bring a sack lunch or snacks and a water bottle and whatever you need for the weather. 


HIKE DETAILS: There are two possible destinations for the day, both gloriously beautiful, both within a 90-minute drive from the church, both about a three to four-mile walk. And it’s wildflower season! These hikes are great for beginners and families as well as experienced hikers. Count on two to three hours on your feet walking at a gently moderate pace up and down hills on uneven trails. Laura will monitor wildflower, trail, and weather conditions and make a final call as to which hike we do as we get closer to the date. Either way, it will be spectacular.


Option 1 - Salmon River Trail: This trail is on the west slope of Mount Hood and meanders along a crystal river through a gorgeous old growth forest. In the spring there are often delicate woodland wildflowers and everything is fresh and green.


Option 2 - Memaloose Hills Hike: This hike is among the top wildflower destinations in the Columbia River Gorge and includes some of the most stunning scenery on the planet.
