Event description

Description

"Established in 1928, Hoyt Arboretum is Portland’s museum of living trees where we grow and exhibit trees and plants from around the world while educating our community and conserving vitally important plant biodiversity." [www.hoytarboretum.org]


The Hike: This hike will take us through spruce and red pine to the majestic redwood stand on Hoyt Arboretum's Evergreen trails. We will also see the beautiful "Root Tree" on the Creek Trail. Part of this loop hike is along Johnson Creek. This a hike designed for tree lovers! Because there are so many trails in this section of Forest Park, this specific loop isn't documented online. This hike will be 3 miles or less with less than 400ft of elevation gain.

Fat Girls Hiking's body positive group hikes are open to ALL genders, ALL sizes, ALL skill levels. We will go at a pace that feels good for everyone. No one is too slow to hike with us! We love to share our lived experiences with one another while hiking 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.

Getting There: The Hoyt Arboretum is in the SW Hills of Forest Park in Portland. Type "Hoyt Arboretum" into Google Maps. We will meet outside the Visitor Center at 4000 SW Fairview Boulevard, two miles west of downtown Portland. Parking lots for Hoyt Arboretum are located at the Visitor Center, in front of the Stevens Pavilion and near the Vietnam Veterans' Memorial. These lots are pay-to-park. Transit information: There is a bus stop outside the Visitor Center for bus #63. There are flush toilet bathrooms at the Visitor Center.
