Walks

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.

SWTrails Resumes its Monthly Walks

Welcome back, walkers, to our first group hikes since the pandemic began.  We are excited to see you all.

Our longer walks 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 Stroll & Coffee walks are on the third Saturday of the month, starting at 9:00 am and ending with a coffee break for those that are interested.  We meet at the west entrance to Ida Wells (was Wilson) High School, just east of the intersection of SW Capitol and Sunset .

Please be aware that COVID safety protocols are in effect in compliance with State guidelines.  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.  Kids and well-behaved dogs on leash 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.
