Dressed to Kill Hike - Angel's Rest!

  • Gateway Transit Center

    1321 NE 99th Ave.
    Nearest Cross St is Pacific Ave.
    Portland, OR (map)

    45.532585 -122.562401

  • That shouldn't be too difficult. Who else will be all dressed up in a parking garage?
  • It's all about looking good on the trail!  Let's hike in our best jackets and ties, fancy gowns, bridal dresses, tuxes and tails or anything dressy -- as long as it is completely inappropriate for hiking and you still have hiking boots on.

    Bonus points if you wear wings (or horns).

    We'll take a group photo when we get to the summit.

    Last year we had some really great outfits:

    http://www.meetup.com/Portland-Hiking-Group/photos/7661212/

    This year we'll do Angel's Rest, about 5 miles distance, in the Gorge.  Please be sure to wear sturdy hiking boots and be prepared for rain if the forecast calls for it.  If it looks really cold, wet or too windy, I will reschedule.

    Distance: 5 miles.   Elevation gain: 1500 feet.

    We'll meet at Gateway to carpool at 9 am.  If you want to go directly to Angel's Rest, take 84 to exit 28.

    Plan to be at the trailhead before 10 am.  I'm hoping to start the hike at 10 am.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    These were last year's dressy hikers.

    Man I TOTALLY thought this was this weekend so I showed up at Gateway in my formal attire. The Mazamas or other Meet-Up hiking group or whatever that was there probably thought I was a bit strange.

    Oh well. Not going to make it next weekend unfortunately >: |

    If you need tips, I hiked the PCT last year in 26 wedding gowns. Every mile. I'm an expert... Maybe I'll pull out the Vera Wang and give it some more trail time...
