Upcoming Trips & Tours
Field Trip Friday – Sauvie Island Pumpkin Patch
Leave the driving to us! The group will meet at Happy Valley City Hall where participants can hop on the RecMobile to enjoy an adventurous day outside the valley at Sauvie Island Pumpkin Patch! Experience Portland’s original Pumpkin Patch since 1967. Get yourself in the autumn spirit while you pick your pumpkin from a lot with over 2 million pounds of pumpkins grown! Stroll through the Produce Market, get your cute and fuzzy fix by checking out the Animal Barn, or relax with great food and drinks from the Patio Café & Pumpkin Perk Coffee. Those who are up for the challenge have to weave their way through the infamous Maize!
Silver Falls Trail of Ten Falls Day Hike
Join Happy Valley Parks and Recreation’s hiking guides as they explore the beautiful Silver Falls State Park, hiking the Trail of Ten Falls. The group will meet at Happy Valley City Hall and head to Silver Falls State Park located near Silverton, around 20 miles southeast of Salem. From here, hikers will set out on the over 7 mile loop along the Trail of Ten Falls, guiding them above, behind and around ten stunning waterfalls!
Fall Foliage Kayak Trip
Estacada Lake is a dammed portion of the Clackamas River that is accessible from Milo McIver State Park. This paddle route travels along a forest-lined river that extends through a river canyon with seasonal waterfalls pouring from the sides. It’s not uncommon to spot osprey, eagles and other wildlife from the river. This paddle is great for beginners or those looking for a tranquil paddle on flat water. Although motorized boats are permitted, the paddle has plenty of opportunities for solitude and quiet moments.
