Group hike (local) – LOW INTENSITY – Drift Creek Falls – 6/8

PLEASE RSVP on form below for full info on hike (terrain details, carpooling, meet-up spots and time). Expect response e-mail within a few days. RSVPs close at 6pm (pst) the day prior to the hike.

Unlikely Hikers creates safer, supportive, intentional, body-positive outdoor community for people underrepresented in outdoors culture (people of color, people of size, trans, queer and beyond) We hike at a slower pace, together as a group. No hiker left behind! No gym bros! Absolutely no diet or weight loss talk. Be mindful of gender pronouns, group dynamics, microaggressions, cultural appropriation and different physical ability levels. People of all genders welcome!


LOWER INTENSITY group hikes are slower paced with elevation gains under 500 feet and less than five miles. Low Intensity does not mean “easy!” There will be hills, but we’ll climb them at our own pace. All of our hikes are body- & fat-positive, but this series has an even stronger emphasis on this. Higher Intensity hikers are welcome as long as they are mindful of the group pace. Beginners welcome!

This hike is in partnership with the National Forest Service (NFS) and their #ItsAllYours campaign.

NOTE: This will be a nearly all day event as it’s about two hours away. We will be providing some vans for transportation! At the end of our hike, we’ll have some snacks provided by our partners and have a discussion about what the outdoors and our National Forests mean to us. These stories and photos from our trek will be used in the campaign!

Date: Saturday, June 8th, 2019

Location: Drift Creek Falls

Time: 8am for carpooling (RSVP for more info).

Trail stats: 3 miles round trip, 400 ft elevation gain, out-n-back.

Dogs & kids are welcome. Please care for your dogs properly and disclose any special info about them so we can all respect boundaries. I can’t promise kid-appropriate conversations within a group of mostly adults.


BEFORE JOINING ONE OF OUR GROUP HIKES:

We want you to to have the most fun and supportive experience possible! Ask yourself, “how does my body like to hike?” No hike is “one size fits all” and choosing the wrong trail could potentially harm you. What is your ideal mileage? Elevation gain? Feel free to ask any questions if you don’t know what some of this means. Beginners are so welcome! xo

RSVPs close at 6pm (pst) the day prior to the hike.
