SW Trails Neighborhood Hikes are back in full swing. Our June and July hikes were a huge success. We were all so happy to see one another again and welcome new walkers!
2nd Saturday Hikes are usually 5-7 miles in length with elevation ups and downs at a 2.5-3 mph pace. Challenging! If you have doubts if a hike of this length and pace is right for you then try out our 3rd Saturday Stroll and Coffee which is a shorter 2-3.5 mile walk with gentler hills, a bit slower pace at about 2.0 mph with an optional coffee stop at the end. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early so we can be ready to start promptly at 9am.
On both hikes, an experienced guide will help you discover the hidden parks and secret cut-throughs that wind through Portland’s southwest neighborhoods. If there is a trail in SW Portland that you love, SW Trails probably helped establish it and helps to maintain it. We are completely volunteer-based. Let us know if you’d like to participate in: trail work (firstname.lastname@example.org); lead a hike (email@example.com); donate or become a member.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The August 2021 Stroll will be on the 4th Saturday in August due to Multnomah Days scheduled on the 3rd Saturday. We really hope to see you at our booth during Multnomah Days on Saturday, August 21, and on the Stroll and Coffee walk on Saturday, August 28!
The August 2nd Saturday Walk will be held on Aug 14. We hope you can make it!
