Women Who Explore Bend OR – Pilot Butte sunset hike and social
March 12, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Let’s celebrate having an extra hour of daylight in the evenings! Come join us for a sunset hike up Pilot Butte, followed by a social hour at River’s Place.
Pilot Butte is a 1.8 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail that offers scenic views and is good for all skill levels. There is 452 ft. of elevation gain. Dogs are able to use this trail, but must be kept on a leash.
We will meet in the parking lot at 6pm to start our hike. You can get to Pilot Butte by taking Highway 20 . If you are coming from the west side of Bend, you will want to take Highway 20 East and make a left on Azure Dr. You will follow the signs to Pilot Butte, and eventually will reach the parking lot. If you are coming from the east side of Bend, you will make a right on Azure Dr. off of Highway 20 west.
What to bring:
Comfortable shoes with good traction (hiking boots or trail running sneakers)
Layers appropriate for the weather and the sunset
After our hike, we will meet down the street at River’s Place for a social hour. River’s Place is located at 787 NE Purcell Blvd, Bend. There is a tap house with a rotating selection of beer and cider, and 5 food trucks on site.
