Covered Bridge Tour
Please note: This event is almost full. If it is full there is a place to register for the waitlist – See below.
Come join us on Saturday, October 1, as we visit six of Oregon’s historic covered bridges. We will be driving through scenic farm country roads in the Willamette Valley as we travel from bridge to bridge. After enjoying a BYO (Bring your own) picnic lunch at the Roaring River County Park we will make a short stop at the Roaring River Fish Hatchery. With over 145 miles on this route, we will be driving most of the day as we stop at each bridge for photo opportunities. The route starts in Wilsonville and ends at the Oregon Garden Resort where you can enjoy refreshments at the Fireside Lounge before heading home. This Tour has a maximum of 10 vehicles in each group, due to the limited parking spaces at most of the Covered Bridge stops.
Group 1: Please arrive by 8:30am. There will be a participant meeting at 8:45am and departure at 9am. You can also arrive at the start at 8am and pick up your picnic supplies at the local deli.
Group 2: Please arrive by 9:00am. There will be a participant meeting at 9:15am and departure at 9:30am. You can also arrive at the start before 9am and pick up your picnic supplies at the local deli.
Volunteers are needed for Lead and Sweep for Group 1 and Sweep for Group 2. Please volunteer when you register, if you are able and willing to accept the responsibilities.
