I wanted to send out an update on the status of our Oregon wine hiking tours, aka our wiking trips. We will be posting more pictures soon.
Due to land access issues we were not able to get the entire trail opened this year. However we have a great set of trail at Left Coast Cellars and through Baskett Slough. From May through the end of August we have access to the longest stretches of the trails, about 6 miles. We will drive portions of the route between the wineries and still have plenty of trail to hike. We are going to schedule a few trips next summer where you can join a group for the six mile hiking trip.
For those that are looking for a shorter hike, that can also be arranged. Depending on the time of year we will also have shorter routes available. Our plan is that on any tour in the Salem area you can request to add on a hiking portion to your tour. We will talk with you about the trip and determine how much hiking we will be able to do.
We were able to take a few groups out this summer and a great time was had by all of our guests. While the cooler weather this summer wasn’t the most helpful for ripening Pinot Noir, it was great for a day of hiking. We have seen a variety of birds and other animals on the trips.
