Description

This summer time weekday evening hike will be lead by Fat Girls Hiking founder, Summer. If you have any questions, please email fatgirlshiking@gmail.com


"Mount Tabor is an extinct volcano, one of many that dot the landscape east of Portland and make up a complex called the Boring Lava Fields. The mountain is the center of a 197-acre city park of the same name." http://www.oregonhikers.org/field_guide/Mount_Tabor_Hike


Fat Girls Hiking's Body Positive group hikes are open to ALL genders, ALL sizes, ALL skill levels. Our ADA accessible hikes have little to no elevation gain & under 2 miles, usually on paved or packed gravel trails. Other hikes are moderate-difficult with elevation gain usually between 200-800ft & around 4miles or less with natural trails, some with roots, stairs and uneven terrain. Please choose a hike that will meet your needs/abilities. During all of our hikes, we go at a pace that feels good for everyone. No one is left behind! We love to share our lived experiences with one another on the trail and hope to create a space where ALL feel welcome! We ask that anyone who joins our group events refrain from diet talk, body shaming or weight loss talk.


The hike: A moderate-difficult 2 miles roundtrip with 350ft elevation gain. There are sections with stairs on this hike. We will hike mostly through forest & have an amazing view of downtown Portland at the top of Mt. Tabor.


We ask that if you are financial able to, consider making a sliding scale payment from $1-$20, pay what you can, to sustain & continue creating the Fat Girls Hiking community. Funds will go toward paying the organizers of this event, as well as allow us the financial capacity of reserving future accessible spaces, purchasing equipment & chairs and offering scholarships (for events that do cost money) to those who cannot afford to donate. If you prefer to donate directly: Pay Pal fatgirlshiking@gmail.com or Venmo @fatgirlshiking. Thank you for helping us sustain this community!

Getting There: Mt. Tabor is located in SE Portland. We will meet/park near the water resevoir. Type "City of Portland Reservoir Number 5" into Google Maps. There are many free parking spots along the road near the reservoir. We will meet at the gates where SE Reservoir Loop Dr & SE Salmon Way meet.

On-leash dogs are welcome to attend! Kids are welcome to attend as well.
