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

SWTrails Resumes its Monthly Walks

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 around 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.
