Columbia Gorge: Steigerwald Lake Accessible Group Hike June 29 

Unlikely Hikers creates a safe, supportive, intentional, body-positive outdoor community for people underrepresented in outdoor culture. Hike at a slower pace, together as a group. No hiker left behind! Accessible hikes tend to be two miles or less, suitable for folks who use mobility devices, with little to no elevation gain. These are specifically intended for those who want to get out into nature, but have physical or health matters that may limit movement. Please RSVP for hike details.
