HALF DAY TOURS

TOUR 1: Oregon City/West Linn/Tualatin - FULLY ACCESSIBLE

Join Get Out of Town Tours for this fun and educational local event. We’ll discover what’s under all those buildings and rocks and how it got there.

We’ll start in Oregon City with a great view of the Willamette Falls, cross the river to West Linn for an easy stroll/roll to learn about the ice age floods that helped create the State we live in and on to Tualatin from there. Along the way we will see a Mastadon skeleton, some tusks and teeth and maybe an erratic or two. Don’t know what an erratic is? You will by the end of the day! Our last stop before returning to our starting point(s) will give us time to relax and find a bird or five at a local wildlife refuge.
