  • Image preview Coastal Trails/Ancient Forests (Neskowin)
    Visit a lighthouse, ancient forests, coastal beaches, and spectacular overlooks on this weekend trip to hike and explore the area around Cape Lookout and Neskowin, Oregon. We’ll stay in the enchanting Neskowin Valley and have a central lodge with a fireplace to cook meals, hang out in the evenings, and stay warm and dry. Spring comes to the Oregon Coast  a few weeks earlier than Portland, so the frogs will entertain you at night with their choruses, and the first wildflowers will be blooming.
    until February 26

  • Image preview All Day: Mt Hood Snowshoe Day Trip 4
    Sign up begins: Friday, Feb 3

    Snowshoe on the trails around Oregon’s tallest volcano!  Weather permitting, we’ll head up one of the trails on the east side of Mt. Hood, looking for great views of the mountain. Snowshoeing takes a fair amount of energy, but it is great exercise and doesn’t require any previous experience.

  • Image preview Winter Camping Clinic
    Learn the skills of winter camping, using gear sleds, wielding those fancy-looking shovels and snow saws, and staying overnight in snow shelters you build. This trip  is moderately strenuous, and is recommended for those in good physical shape and who are comfortable in the outdoors. There is a mandatory 1.5 hour pre-trip meeting before we head out for the snow, since winter camping is not the sort of thing you want to jump into without a little background. Join us for this amazing weekend and learn how to live in the snow.
    until March 5
  • Image preview Backpack the Oregon Dunes
    The Oregon Dunes are a spectacular and unique location perfect for spring backpacking. On this trip we’ll head to the central Oregon coast, stay in a yurt on Friday night, then set out for a backcountry adventure through the Dunes on Saturday and Sunday. We’ll backpack through transition forests, sand dunes, and beaches during this weekend trip. Backpacking, especially on sandy dunes, is a rigorous activity and not for the faint at heart. As Oregon weather can be unpredictable in the spring, extreme weather conditions may require us to stay in rustic yurts and set out on daytrips in lieu of backcountry travel.
