Events and activities at LOACC


by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - The Happy Hikers meet on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday mornings. 
Happy Hikers is an informal group of adult hikers who get together to explore trails at various parks such as Tryon Creek, Foothills and Willamette Park as well as downtown Lake Oswego.

This diverse group has been gathering for more than 10 years, but new participants are welcome with the only requirement being a love for the outdoors. Their hikes average about 2 miles right in our own backyard, which will give you a renewed sense of the outdoor experience.

Meet at the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center east parking lot and check in with one of our volunteer leaders Krstl Robbins or Joan Bollman. Happy Hikers meets Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 9:15 a.m. or Saturdays at 9:30 a.m. at George Rogers Park lower lot.
