Milo McIver bike camping
Saturday, May 11, 2013 at 10:00 AM - Sunday, May 12, 2013 at 5:00 PM (PDT)
Cycle Wild's May overnight trip is to Milo McIver State Park, just outside Estacada. Please join us! Milo McIver has miles of hiking paths, swimming in the Clackamas (if it's warm enough or you're brave enough), and a couple of awesome disc golf courses.
This is considered an "easy" trip, and we are encouraging families to join us. There will probably also be a friendly dog or two on this trip!
The ride will leave the Cleveland Avenue Max station at 10:30 on Saturday, May 11. Please be aware that trailers and cargo bikes aren't allowed on the MAX, and getting to the start point might require extra riding if you will be using a non-standard bike. The Springwater Corridor Trail brings you to only a few blocks from the starting point.
We'll ride on the Springwater Corridor until Boring, then down Amisigger Road to Clackamas Hwy/OR-224, which takes us straight into Estacada. This highway has a good amount of traffic, but the section we will be riding it has very wide, smooth shoulders. We'll have a grocery stop at the Estacada Thriftway before riding the last mile or two into camp. The one-way trip distance is around 21 miles.

We have reserved the group camp at Milo McIver, so we have lots of space. We ARE requiring preregistration, but we are not taking money in advance. Cost will depend on number of attendees, and we are estimating it will cost less than $10 per person to camp. Firewood is $5 per bundle, so please plan to pitch in a couple dollars for that, as well. Campers are responsible for their own food. If you plan to cook, please bring a stove. Potable water, restrooms and showers are available at the camp.
If you have questions about the trip, what to bring, how to get to the starting point, please contact erinne.larissa at gmail.
