Hi! It seems that lots of folks are hitting this page of the blog in an attempt to find some info about the Memaloose Hills hike that the Friends of the Gorge are promoting as one of their “25 Best trails”. Here are two Google earth sketches of the route I recommend in Curious Gorge. Sometimes the Friends lead hikes beginning at the I-84 Memaloose rest stop, but that loop route is very tricky and involved to succinctly describe. The route here is the bang-for-the-buck version, especially near late April/May 1st when the bloom is in full tilt. Check Google earth and you’ll see plenty of my pix.
NOTE: as of 5-2-2012, the Memaloose Hills were in super-hyper bloom!!
