Narrative:  Milwaukie Riverfront Park to George Rogers and perhaps up to Hog Is. (6-9 miles RT)
We’ll meet at Milwaukie Riverfront Park at 9:45 a.m. and plan to launch around 10:30 a.m. Lunch at George Rogers Park, Lake Oswego.

Parking is free, but it can be limited. If you don’t find a NON-trailer spot at the boat ramp, plan B is to drop off your boat and park across the street in the business area. Single vehicles are NOT allowed in the trailer parking spots. You can launch from the dock, ramp, or rocky beach. Bathrooms are available. 

We will observe the Four Ps: Please Plan to be a Pod Participant! If you are a lone wolf, this is not the trip for you. This will be a moderately-relaxed pace trip; SUPs are welcome if you can maintain 3 mph.paddling speed.
