2023 Guided Outings Have Now Concluded!

Check back here in March 2024 for spring 2024 outings, and subscribe to our hiking eNews below to get the latest event announcements and invitations delivered to your inbox.

IMPORTANT: As a courtesy to your fellow participants, Friends staff, and hike volunteers, please only register for guided outings if you are committed to attending. There is extremely high demand to join our limited outings, and we want to ensure that all have equal opportunity to experience the beauty of the Gorge with us. Beginning this season, if you cancel less than 7 days before the event twice or no-show twice to Friends guided outings that you are registered for, you will not be able to attend a guided outing for the rest of the year. We thank you in advance for this consideration.

Friends’ volunteer hike leaders and shepherds make our guided outings program possible. They enjoy sharing their knowledge, passion, and stewardship ethic for the Gorge on every event they lead. Because of friends like these, our program is set apart from the rest as every outing has an educational focus or theme.
