Portland, OR – 2/4

This event is at capacity, but we hope you’ll register for the waitlist. Please note that priority will be given to hikers who are BI&POC, fat-identified, Trans, Non-Binary, Disabled and/or folks who donate monthly to sustain Unlikely Hikers via Credit/Debit card or Patreon.

With a 725-foot elevation gain, and 4.4 miles round trip, this is a more challenging trail than our usual offerings. If you are unsure of your ability to do a trail with this gain in under 5 hours, we ask that you register for any one of our other less difficult events for your safety. Register now for our Accessible event at Steigerwald Lake the very next day, 2/5!

Leaders: UH Squad represent! UH founder, Jenny Bruso (she/they) and co-lead, Brie Jones (they/them)

DATE: Saturday, February 4th

LOCATION: Bridge of the Gods Trailhead

TRAIL STATS: 4.4 miles, 725 feet elevation gain, out & back — much more challenging than our usual offerings. If you are unsure of your ability to do a trail with this gain in under 5 hours, we ask that you register for any one of our other less difficult events for your safety.

TIME: we’ll be starting earlier for this one due to parking

FULL EVENT DETAILS + TRAIL INFO + DIRECTIONS + PARKING + MEET-UP SPOT provided via confirmation email. Our events are in very high demand and we can’t run the risk of exceeding group size limits because of folks showing up without registering. Start time generally varies between 8am-10am. Thank you for your understanding!

KIDS: we welcome 1 vaccinated child per family. They must be declared on your registration form below so we can maintain the headcount. Your kiddo must have some hiking experience on trails like the one we are hiking. We take many breaks, but we would not say these events are geared toward young kids. Proof of vax required.

DOGS: leashed dogs with good manners are welcome (no jumping, no aggression, anxiety in check, etc.)––we are not trying to shame you or your dog if they don’t fit this bill.

The important stuff:

  • Your registration is a commitment to joining. This is not a placeholder. We probably have a waitlist of folks who would love your spot.
  • No plus-ones. Your adult friends & family must register themselves.
  • All communication and further information is via emailunlikelyhikers@gmail.com – No social media DMs.
  • PROOF OF VAX + at least 1 BOOSTER REQUIRED.
  • This is not one of our Accessible hikes.

Day-of:

  • Maintain physical distance w/folks outside of your pack to the best of your availability with respect to Covid-19 and our individual comfort levels at this time of the pandemic.
  • While we no longer require masks while outside, we encourage you to bring one as a best practice. If you are someone who feels most comfortable wearing a mask at all times, or most of the time, we support you.
  • Be on time.
  • Eat breakfast, bring snacks & hydrate.
