Neighborhoods: East Side Promenade

A bike route through the Larkspur neighborhood offers hidden adventure
From my front door on NE Lotus Drive, adjacent to Pilot Butte, there's a paved bikeable foot path that tracks all the way to Reed Market Road, straight through the heart of the Larkspur neighborhood—no stop lights and very few street crossings. Its two variations are known as Larkspur and Coyner Trails, however, I informally refer to the network as the Eastside Promenade (Prom).

Green Building with Hemp

Hempcrete offers a non-toxic alternative to other building materials

Trailblazing: From Low-Cal to Big Gains

Deschutes Brewery steps away from lighter beers, making a powerful & tasty hazy IPA in the process
