Walking the Wild Applegate Film Premiere — October 9, 2016

Where: 14615 Water Gap Road at Pacifica in Williams, Oregon

When: October 9, 2016. 6:00-9:00 PM                                                               


Join the Applegate Trails Association (ATA) for the exciting film premiere of Walking the Wild Applegate, a short documentary film about the first thru-hike of the Jack-Ash and Applegate Ridge Trails. This past May two board members from ATA, Josh Weber and Luke Ruediger, hiked from downtown Ashland, Oregon to the Catherdral Hills Park, on the outskirts of Grants Pass, Oregon. The 80-mile, mostly trailless journey follows the route of the Jack-Ash and Applegate Ridge Trails proposed by Applegate-based trail groups and ANN members, the Applegate Trails Association and the Siskiyou Uplands Trail Association. Filmmaker Tim Lewis followed the hikers on their journey and spent all summer creating a beautiful film about the Applegate Valley and the proposed trails. Come be the first to see this wonderful Applegate-based film and support your local non-motorized trail groups.

Music will follow the film premiere by the Applegate Ramblers!: Alice DeMicele, Emily Turner, Mikey Stevens and Vince Herman.

Tickets are $10 at the door or at the Ruch Country Store. Children under 12 will be free. Food, beverages, deserts and beer will be available for purchase. Come join ATA and celebrate the beauty of the Applegate Valley!

ANN strongly supports both non-motorized trails. We appreciate the sense of place the trails will help build in the Applegate Valley. They would be good for our economy, good for our quality of life, and would serve to bring people closer to the beautiful environment in which we live.

We hope to see you at this exciting event. Join us and support the wild in the Applegate Valley.
