In a forest approximately 1km east of the end of SW Montgomery Way and 100m north of the north bank of the Willamette River, Wilsonville, Washington County, OR, USA.



Leave work after lunch (hooray for summer hours on friday!) and drive south on I-5 towards Wilsonville. Take SW Montgomery road all the way to the end, park and hike through the forest to the geohash.


Hopped on 26 east around 1300, took 217 south to I-5 south and got off at exit 286. This ended up being a slightly different route, than I had planned. I would approach the geohash from the north, via SW 60th avenue. This ended up being a pretty interesting route. 60th Ave. started off as a regular road, then became a gravel road, and eventually became not a road at all, but just a grass path with tire tracks lined by blackberry bushes. I drove down this bumpy, overgrown non-road for about half of a mile before I came the to end. I got out of the car and poked around in the brush, but the forest seemed largely unpassable. I was only able to get within about 600 feet of the Geohash. At this point I turned around and left, figuring that the forest approach via Montgomery Way would also not be hikable, at least not without a machete to clear the brush out of the way.
