Portland Trail Trekkers is a Portland, OR-based outdoors club that focuses on day hiking, nature-related events, monthly book reviews, and close-in outdoor events. We are a day hiking group that likes to enjoy the trails around town in a quiet and respectful way. In addition to day hiking, the group enjoys other nature-related events and book discussions related to the outdoors/environment.
We are an "adults-only" (18 years and older) hiking group. We are a 'mindful' hiking group that enjoys the sounds of nature as well as getting in a good workout and sharing the beauty of the natural world with like-minded trekkers. Group participants are asked not to talk or text on their cellphones while out hiking with the group. We enjoy a temporary respite from the noise of modern day gadgetry and like to disconnect to better enjoy a natural/green world experience.
"No soliciting of your products or services." A quick reminder that Meet-up leaders are unpaid volunteers and claim no special expertise or knowledge. We will hike as a group but ultimately you are responsible for your own experience, safety and decision-making. Three consecutive no-shows (registering for an event and not showing up) can lead to being removed from future events.
Also, don't show up to our hikes under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
