Group hike – Eugene, OR – Shotgun Creek

RSVP on Facebook or via e-mail form. It’s important that I know who is going. Please note, you will only hear from me if there are updates.

Unlikely Hikers creates safer, supportive outdoor community for people underrepresented in outdoors culture. We hike together as a group. No hiker left behind! Absolutely no diet or weight loss talk. Be mindful of gender pronouns, group dynamics, microaggressions, cultural appropriation and different physical ability levels.

——————————————-
BEFORE JOINING ONE OF OUR GROUP HIKES, ask yourself, “how does my body like to hike?” If you are someone who can hike big miles and high elevation gains, please refrain from joining our Low Intensity and Nice & Slow hikes. Similarly, if your body doesn’t know what 5+ miles or 500+ feet of elevation feels like, our “general” hikes might not be right for you. No hike is “one size fits all” and choosing the wrong trail could potentially harm you.
