Where Ya Going? Tryon Creek

Did you know that you can click on the Route name (shown in blue like this) and it will actually open up a map that shows the route for the week? You can enlarge the map to zero in on any areas that you may be unfamiliar with. This week’s 11 mile Route (shown above) has some hills! We’ll start out turning Left and staying on Moody all the way thru the South Waterfront. Sharp left to get onto the bike path. Follow the path all the way until you head into Willamette Park. Turn Right to exit the park at the main vehicular entrance which is Nebraska St. Stay on Nebraska until it dead ends at Corbett. Turn Left and head up the series of 5 hills known as the Corbett Stairs. At the top of Corbett, turn Right on Custer, Right on Brier and then a quick Left back on Custer. Pick up the Bark Chip path at the end of Custer for a short ways and WALK up the railroad tie stairs on your Left. You’ll come out on 4th St. and immediately take the Left set of stairs directly across 4th St., which brings you to Terwilliger. Continue heading South on Terwilliger until you get to the light at Taylors Ferry. Cross the street at the light and again head South on the West side of the street. You’ll stay on Terwilliger until you cross Boones Ferry (just past Riverdale High). Pick up the asphalt path into Tryon Creek Park. Your turn around spot is at the main entrance to the park (conveniently close to the rest rooms!). Take a moment to grab some water, regroup, take some silly pics, and follow the same route back to Zidell.

Remember single file and high five when you’re passing other PFitters. The only easily assessable water fountain and restrooms are in Tryon Creek Park close to the main entrance.
