Welcome to PortlandHikers! We're so glad you found us. We can't wait to hear about your adventures and see your photos.

Just a few notes before posting to the "Introduce Yourself" forum. This forum meant to allow people to give people a chance to say a little about themslves.

A few things you can include (but are by no means required)
  • Where you're from
  • Your experience level
  • Whether or not you're open to partnering up with others on hikes
  • Some highlights from your hiking career
  • Maybe - how did you get into hiking to begin with?
  • Your to-do list! :)
Don't be too discouraged if no one responds right away. We don't have an "old boys club" here. We really encourage new folks getting involved even if people can't always find time to respond to every introduction. It's always fun to look back at the intros after we get to know someone for awhile!

Also, if you're a lurker and just want to check in and say hi, that's ok too.

Before posting to this or any forum on the site, be sure to review the forum guidelines.

We are proud of the fact our site is very welcoming and family friendly. Please help us keep it that way!

Thank you!

The moderators

PS: one last thing: PAY IT FORWARD. If you felt welcomed here, return the favor to future first-timers!
