Who we are....
We are a group of Oregonians who like to walk....a lot! We create and staff walks around the Beaverton, Hillsboro, Cornelius, Forest Grove areas and even occassionally create walks in places like the Banks-Vernonia State Trail and Tillamook State Forest. When we aren't putting together one of our walks, we travel around the state (and beyond) to participate in other clubs walks. Come and join us...all are welcome! PS...the picture is just some of us!
What are Volkssports?
These activities were developed in Germany..the "volks" is German for people, thus they are people sports. The primary activity is walking, though there are sometimes bike events, swim events, snowshoe events, ski events, even some canoing, and kayaking....but mostly you'll find us walking!
