OutdoorDads is a family outdoors group in
Portland Oregon. Our goals:
To encourage parents to get outside with their kids, and
meet other parents who do the same
To instill in our children a love of adventures in the
hikes once a month from April to November. Hikes are typically 2-3
miles long at the most with minimal elevation gain, we go at a very modest
pace, and are within a 45 minute drive of Portland. While primarily a group for dads, all
outings are open to both dads and moms. We're mostly geared for kids
from 3 months to 5 years, but all ages are welcome.
is an informal group, and we want to keep it that way. There's no
membership fees, applications or waivers. Participants pay only for
personal expenses related to a particular trip (typically US Forest Service
parking fees, park entrance costs, etc.)
No tree carcasses are used at
OutdoorDads. Our calendar is entirely web and email based.
If you want to get a monthly reminder email about upcoming
events, just let us know and we'll
add you to our list.
