Group hike – Portland – Little Crater Lake to Timothy Lake – 9/21

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!

This hike is supported by, 
Next Adventure. We freaking love them!

POWER IN GATHERING: Because this hike is free and there is power in gathering, please bring a donation of any amount for Adventures Without Limits (AWL) if you are able to! AWL creates accessible outdoor adventures for people of all abilities and incomes to experience the incredible natural environment of the Pacific Northwest. Just $110 funds a trip for two people and I’d really love to reach that goal. I will share the receipt of the donation with you all! You can bring cash or send it via Venmo @Jenny-bruso or – Be sure to notate what the donation is for!

NOTE: This will be a nearly all day event as it’s about two hours away. We will have a picnic at our halfway point and if it’s warm enough, a swim! Who knows what the weather holds.

Date: Saturday, September 21, 2019

Location: Little Crater Lake to Timothy Lake, Mt. Hood National Forest

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

Trail stats: 5 miles round trip, 100 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.


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.

9/9: All RSVPs received from this date through 9/16, will be processed on the 17th as I will be traveling.
