Чем вы займетесь

As Halloween, or "Samhain," approaches, we honor the witch in Forest Park and our experience revolves around her. Our practice of telling the story of the women whose energy infuse this place gains power as the veil between the worlds thins. Hiking on Wildwood Trail is an immersion, what we call "forest bathing," and we feel the energies of both vitality and stasis. In this fluid place that exists both in and out of time —within a minute of a Portland street — you can forget you are still in a city. We start at Clearing Cafe, a jumping-off point for this 4.5 mile (7 km) hike in a 5,000-acre forested area. We’ll hike up to the quixotic Witch’s Castle. We will tell you how it has gathered its energy in the decades since its damage in the 1962 Columbus Day windstorm, and in the castle, perform a small ritual meant to connect to the women whose stories thread through this place (or the elder women to whom you most closely connect). From here we head up the hill, stopping to see streams cascading into basalt-lined pools, beautiful moss- and fern-covered Western redcedars and big leaf maples, the towering Douglas-firs. We’ll arrive at the Pittock Mansion to view the city laid out before us before descending into Washington Park, through secret staircases and paths to end at the International Rose Test Garden - in all about 1,000 feet elevation gain.

Sarah

I'm Sarah Gilbert, co-founder of Around Portland Tours and together with my partners & guides Madi, Edwin, Jeri and Jonathan will host the experiences. As a forest witch, I have taught our guides how to honor the energy of a forest and to perform meditation and rituals within it; we'll weave you as guests into the experience we revere as our holy place. I'm a published writer of essays and professional storyteller, and the narrative around which this tour is based is a collaboration between us, writers and route designers, as a movable narrative, what we call place-based storytelling. We bring you to places that we as story creators know intimately and are bursting to share. See what we do on Instagram: @aroundportlandtours We're all dedicated hikers, and our lives are so much better for it. Can we share the love with you?

Где вы побываете

Our tour starts in NW Portland in the neighborhood known simply as "Forest Park" by locals, and steps (literally) off a bridge, descending down into another world, a 5,200-acre forested park. We'll walk the Wildwood Trail, visit the Witches Castle, often see our favorite birds (and harbingers of transformation) at the Pittock Mansion viewpoint, and walk a locals-only path from there to the Rose Garden--one we learned only through dozens of hikes.

Другие советы

The hike is 4.5-5 miles (7-8 km), with about 1,000 feet of elevation gain, with lots of uneven terrain (but nothing technical). The first three miles contain some steep but doable climbs. Most guests in moderate shape find it a fun challenge -- but it can be difficult for less active guests.
