There is now a permanent populaire from Beaverton out to Hagg Lake and back.
Starting at my favorite Beaverton perms start at SW Canyon Rd and SW 117th Ave, we head west on SW Jenkins/SW Baseline through Hillsboro, until it merges with SW TV Hwy.
NOTE: if the way is blocked in Hillsboro because of the Farmers' Market, just turn left until you get to SW TV Hwy (two blocks), then turn right. It may be signed SW Baseline still.
The first control is in Forest Grove, and by now, I am ready for a big sticky bun at Maggie's Buns. You might like Pizza Schmizza or Scotties (burgers).
Then south out of Forest Grove and west to the circumnavigation of Hagg Lake.
Our last on-course control is the grocery in Gaston. Friendly people, fabulous soundtrack, coffee, bananas, snacks, and high quality chocolate bars.
And then back we go, along quieter roads back to the start in Beaverton. If you need to stop before, Forest Hills Golf Course at mile 50.2 has a snack bar and restrooms. But the water in their outside water fountain is terrible. Don't go there.
At the finish you will find many coffee shops and expedient food stops to get your finish receipt.
