Friends’ Hike Program Information
Guided outings are free unless otherwise noted.
Friends' members can register early and join members-only outings.
Friends' hike program is sponsored by avid hiker & criminal defense attorney Jim O'Rourke. Jim believes “the Gorge really is the eighth wonder of the world and protecting it is incredibly important. Being a member of Friends gives me a way to be helpful in protecting that resource.”
