Take a Walk in the Park(s) for Health & Humanism!

This is a mostly shady walk with a gentle uphill climb to city views at the top. We'll be parked in a small lot on the north side of Holgate at the base of the trail. Easy access by bus.

We're moving out-of-doors with the warmer weather! Join HGP-Meetup's weekly Saturday morning health walk, now at a park near you! Nothing too strenuous (we still want to be able to walk-and-talk) though we'll test our limits as we shape up.

Do you have a Darwin/Dawkins/Humanism T-shirt? Remember to wear it so we can spread a little science and reason as we share the trails -- and don't forget a water bottle, hat and cell phone.

Plan to meet a few minutes early so we can pair up and be ready to start the walk together at 9:00. We'll meet in the parking lot nearest the trailhead and return there to carpool to a nearby coffee shop forsomething caffeinated and to continue the conversation.

Let's get out from under those fluorescent mall lights! The ladies issue this challenge to the guys: start your day off right with a brisk walk under a natural canopy. Teens, and older children with adult supervision are welcome.

Are you a Rabbit,Turtle, or Mollusk (those who must travel at a snail's pace)? We probably have someone in the group who can walk at your speed; if you are a Super-Humanist you may need to bring your own walking partner, depending on the steepness of the trail.

We've never cancelled! Steady rain sends us back to the closest of our favorite malls, but a light sprinkle is a go! To get the Event Host's cell number in case you can't find us, email them from their member page before the activity by clicking on their name.

All Meetup fees are paid by the Humanists of Greater Portland through your memberships; donations towards the work of HGP are greatly appreciated.

We look forward to seeing you -- bring a friend!

    Look to your left (north) as you head east up Holgate from 136th Ave. You'll see the parking lot.
