SWTrails sponsors two monthly walks through areas of southwest Portland.  It’s a great way to get some exercise, enjoy the sights, and meet your neighbors. We also have a collection of Self-led hikes that can be done at any time read more HERE

Our longer hikes are on the second Saturday of the month.  They start at 9:00am and try to be finished by about noon.  Our shorter, less-hilly walks are on the third Saturday of the month, starting at 9:00 am and end no later than 12pm.  In order to offer a wider range of hikes, our meeting place may vary each month.  Please check the starting location noted in our emails.

Plan on arriving a little early to sign in so that we can leave promptly at 9am.  Bring a snack, water, good footwear, sunglasses and dress for the weather. Well-behaved dogs on leash and kids are welcome. For health reasons, there is no smoking on SWTrails walks. For more information or to volunteer to lead a future walk in your neighborhood, contact us at walks@swtrails.org. Our hikes are co-sponsored by SWTrails PDX and Hillsdale Neighborhood Association.

Self-Led Hikes

Don’t forget about our Self-Led Hikes we developed during the COVID restrictions to offer the community some walking opportunities when we couldn’t meet to walk together.  You have over 30 hikes with a range of difficuly to choose from, with both a written description of the hike and an interactive map to guide you on your way.
