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. Signing up and not showing up (no-show) for an event may lead to being removed from the group.
Also, don't show up to our hikes under the influence of alcohol or drugs. We enjoy our events in a sober fashion.
