Join environmental educator Roland Begin for a hike around Hoyt Arboretum – and through ‘deep time’ – to learn about the unique geology of Portland’s West Hills. We’ll get to walk beside an earthquake fault – and gain an appreciation of ‘timefulness’ and the ever-changing land beneath our feet.

Public tours are held rain or shine. Dress for the weather, and wear comfortable shoes for walking on trails. The route is approximately 1 mile and will include some ups and downs along the way. Most of the tour route will travel on well-graded packed dirt or gravel trails.

Masks are no longer required for outdoor programs in Portland parks. If you are feeling any COVID-19 symptoms, please stay safe and stay home.

Landslides, Faults, and the Geology of Portland’s West Hills is a free guided tour, but registration is required (group size is limited). Meet at the Hoyt Arboretum Visitor Center.
