Hikes & Rambles

Women walking side by side, in the same direction,
through God’s creation, toward health, support, and friendship.


Village women, the trails call! Please join us for refreshing companionship as we ramble through the cathedral of trees and past marshy ponds of water lilies. Experience how readily friendships develop on the trail in God’s wondrous world. We will watch for owls and great blue heron. 

Upcoming Hike:

When: Saturday September 25, 9am

Where: Cooper Mountain Nature Park, 18892 SW Kemmer Road, Beaverton, OR 97007, off of 170th. (We will meet in the gravel overflow parking area, east side of the parking lot.)

Details: The park overlooks the Chehalem Mountains and Tualatin Valley and is a hilltop sanctuary in a rapidly growing residential area of Beaverton. There are 3.5 miles of trails on 232 acres, passing through forests, prairies and oak woodlands. We will do a 3 mile loop, but the trails are not flat: 579 feet of elevation gain to be proud
of when we’re done! Walk will take about 1 1⁄2 hours. Bring water, wear walking shoes, hats recommended, and poles may be useful if you like to use them. No pets allowed.

RSVP: Email Danielle Thonis at [email protected].


First time joining us? We’re excited to have you! Please fill out this form and bring with you to the hike.
