Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the turnout off Slyline Blvd at the entrance trail to Willamette Stone State park. Hiked down to touch the famous survey stone laid in 1851 and then hiked up the roadway from there. That was the only place I could find to park that would not be suspicious or obnoxious to the private residences along the way.
Hike was 1.6 miles and about 320 feet of gain.
70 F early morning before the heat wave
