Welcome to Portland Hikers
Welcome to Portlandhikers.org. We are a community of hikers and outdoor lovers coming together
to share experiences and encourage each others' first step to their next adventure. Our site
is main two things: a hiking forum and a trail resource. Click on
tons of great trip reports and to participate in discussions. Click on
our growing, community-built trail resource. Our goal is to expand horizons, share experiences,
and help hikers meet hikers. We welcome all experience levels.
Oh, by the way, we aren't a "hiking club", but we can sure help you get connected to them! See the
bottom left of this page to find links to area outdoor groups.
Enjoy your stay then turn off your computer and get back outdoors!
