Group hike – PORTLAND, OR – Forest Park – 12/29

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 is creating supportive, intentional, body-positive outdoor community for people underrepresented in outdoor culture (people of color, people of size, trans, queer and beyond). We hike together slowly 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.


This event is in partnership with Next Adventure!

Date: Sunday, December 29th, 2019

Location: Forest Park, Newberry Rd. Wildwood trailhead

Time: 9am (for carpooling)

Trail stats: 5.7 miles round trip, 500 ft elevation gain.

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

Before you hit submit:

-Your RSVP is a commitment to joining, not a placeholder. Should you find you are unable to come, you are agreeing to let me know as soon as possible so that someone on the waitlist may take your place.
-No plus ones. Your friends, partners, mom, etc. must register on their own. The only exception is for your kids, but you must disclose that they are coming on your own form or via email. This is so we know exactly how many people are coming.
