What you'll do

There are hikes aplenty near Portland, but which one is at its best right now? Where are the flowers blooming, the waterfalls rushing, or the salmon spawning? I'm the local expert, author of a best-selling guidebook, and I will take you there -- whether it's in the Columbia River Gorge, on Mount Hood, out at the Oregon Coast, or close to town. Or maybe our "hike" will be a snowshoe outing! I've been hiking around here since 1996, and I have written two books on the subject. I will take you just the right spot, perhaps to that out-of-the-way, uncrowded place that you won't find with the usual online search. I'll tell you stories and point out natural and historic features along the way. I'll make sure you have the perfect Portland hiking day. We'll go around 6-7 miles and try to keep it to about 1,000 feet of elevation gain.

Where you'll be

At each time of year, there is a hike nearby that is just right. We might be going to the Columbia River Gorge for waterfalls, to Mount Hood for alpine meadows or a snowshoe trip, the Pacific coast to look for whales, or wherever else the mountain spirits are calling.

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 3 guests ages 18 and up can attend. You need to be of basically sound physical health, but even if you're not an experienced hiker, we will get you out there!

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

In winter, this cold be a snowshoe. Also, while we will hike in light rain, if it's looking really grim I will cancel at least a day before. Get in touch with me if you have any questions.
