For the non-facebook users amongst us... our next Lizard trail run outing is coming up this weekend - Sunday, April 8. 

 

This time we will be heading to the scenic old growth forest along Opal Creek.

 

Meet at the Bridgeport Village/Tualatin Park and Ride at 7:30 to carpool.  It's a 2 hour drive down there, so assuming we run for 2 or so hours + drive time and lunch, I imagine it will be 3-ish by the time we are back.

 

There are multiple destinations, with a 6.5 mile out-back being the distance to Jawbone Flats and Opal Pool. For those wanting to go further, it's about a 10.5 mile trek to continue past Opal Pool up to Cedar Flats. With waterfalls and epic scenery everywhere, I imagine this will be the standard "run for 2 or 2.5 hours total", but everyone can run as long as they like.
