Arrive and Drive – Saturday, June 8: Picnic Lunch Opportunity

June 8 @ 8:45 am - 2:00 pm

The 2019 Arrive and Drives continue on Saturday, June 8 with a picnic lunch opportunity!  

To attend, bring your favorite Porsche (with plenty of fuel), a picnic lunch and ideally, a navigator.  The drive starts at Fred Meyer, 30020 SW Boones Ferry Rd, Wilsonville, OR 97070. (I-5 Exit #283, go west on Wilsonville Rd. turn South on SW Boones Ferry Rd.).   Please arrive no later than 8:45am (arrive earlier and have breakfast at Biscuits Café!).  Drivers’ meeting takes place around 9:00am. With an average of 40 to 50 cars, we will break into smaller groups rather than doing one long convoy. The first group of cars will depart at around 9:15am.  

We are in need of drivers to lead the groups. Please contact Eric at tours@oregonpca.org if you want to help.

This is a casual drive through the beautiful Williamette Valley, past vineyards, orchards, cattle ranches and farms. The drive starts at the north end of the Wilsonville Fred Meyer parking lot, just west of the Fred Meyer Starbucks.  The drive ends at Marys Peak.

Lunch options include: 
1. Bring a picnic lunch from home
2. Stop in at Fred Meyer and pick up lunch at the start of the drive (The Fred Meyer Deli is behind the Starbucks – order the night before to avoid a long line)
3. Find a restaurant in Philomath or Corvallis after leaving Marys Peak (we will hand out a list of options at the start)

Marys Peak is southwest of Corvallis. It is the highest peak in the Oregon Coast Range at 4095 ft. The drive to get to Marys Peak will take us through some of Oregon’s smallest towns such as Pedee and Kings Valley with nice smooth roads and a few twisties. Once we enter the Siuslaw National Forest, we will be traveling on a five (5) mile wonderful twisty, paved road up to the Marys Peak parking lot. On a clear day the view of 5 mountain peaks is spectacular.  A half-mile hike, with 300+ft of elevation gain, will take you from the parking lot to more views at the top of Marys Peak. Please check the Marys Peak website here: Marys Peak

A $5 parking pass is required to park, but other passes are acceptable. Check the following URL to see if your pass qualifies: Passes at Marys Peak.

THIS IS A NO FEE EVENT
