  1. This sounds like fun! We’re new to PDX and would love to meet some other moms & kids who like to hike. What’s the age range of most of the kids who participate? Thanks–hope to hear back from you soon.

  2. I would love to know where to sign up!! Along with good age for children to attend? I am looking forward to this with my daughter very much…
    Take Care, Holly

  3. My daughter Zahra and I plan to go. Zahra just turned 3 and loves to hike, although sometimes she just wants to stop and smell the flowers, so it’s always an exercise in patience!

    Look forward to seeing you all.
