Come join a small group of herbal medicine hikers on this waterfall hike in the Gifford-Pinchot national forest. This is a full day excursion to an amazing spot that is a little further from Portland. We will go up into the magical land between Mt. Saint Helens and Mt. Adams - a land created by ancient volcanoes and full of cascading waterfalls! We may see orchids, mycotrophs, and other rare plants found only in deep and pristine old growth forest, as well as forest giants.
Hiking difficulty: Easy to Moderate hiking for about 4 miles on well-maintained trails with 850 feet of elevation gain.

This is a full day of plant medicine exploration.

Tincture tasting may be included, with the opportunity to purchase plant medicines if desired. We will take a mid-day lunch break.
Important: When you purchase the class you will be emailed a link to download a PDF file containing details about the class locations and other necessary instructions. This link will be active for 30 days. If the link expires you may email us for a new link. However, as we prefer to spend our time in the woods rather than on the computer, we recommend downloading the file immediately.
