Unlikely Hikers Nice & Slow Group Hike – Wapato Access Trail

 

PORTLAND, OREGON:

The next Unlikely Hikers Nice & Slow Group Hike is on the books for Sunday, September 10, the Wapato Access Trail on Sauvie Island. The Nice & Slow group hikes are specifically for those who NEED a slower pace on a flatter, shorter trail. This is for the chronic pain cuties, fat babes who want/need a supportive setting like this, etc. I want to create a safer space for people to experience their bodies in nature while doing light movement.

If the above doesn’t exactly apply to you, but you want a slower group hike, please join one of my other hikes which are always slower paced.

We will move as a group and take as many breaks as we want. No hiker left behind!

This is a private, invite-only event. Please send me a message/e-mail and a few words about your unique needs. I will need your e-mail address!

♥ ♥ ♥ Unlikely Hikers is for those underrepresented in outdoors culture: people of color, people of size, trans and gender non-conforming individuals and so on. This is *not* to conflate those experiences, but to share supportive group hiking space at the intersections of these experiences. ♥ ♥ ♥

  1. Hi Jenny, I’m a new reader of your blog.  I’ve always been a very slow hiker.  I’m 63 years old and had knee replacement (just one) in April but my rehab went very well and I’m trying to get some elevation changes in my hiking in the near future to prepare for some possibly serious hiking in a couple of weeks.  This might not be the hike for me but I can provide transportation for up to 3 people (and dogs) and, if that would be helpful, I’d be happy to come, depending on the day and the temperature.  I did not see what day you scheduled this hike.  Anyway, I hope you’ll keep me in mind for upcoming slow hikes with elevation change.  When I read this on my phone, it looked like you wanted information that I don’t see requested now (I’m on my pc):  In addition to being 63, slow, and rehabbing, I’m about 5’6,” straight, weighed 213 in January but I’m down to 183 now (I thought it would help the knee, and I was right).  I haven’t done any Gorge hiking since the surgery but I’ve walked on Powell Butte a couple of times and walked from the Audubon Society to Pittock Mansion.  If you’d like me to come, let me know what day the hike is and if you want me to pick anyone up, and please keep me advised of other slow hikes.   Thanks,Lorraynelorrayneellis@yahoo.com

  2. If the thermometer behaves itself, I’ll see you there!

    So far as I know, you don’t need a permit for this one (been comin’ here for years) but you DO need insect repellent. Lots and lots of insect repellent. A pair of binoculars is also nice.
