Syren Nagakyrie leads group hikes and gatherings in western Washington and Oregon and beyond. They are also available to come to your area. Group hikes are supportive experiences. The group hikes together; we adapt the hike to match the needs of everyone present, rest when needed, and make decisions about when to turn back as a group.

Disabled Hikers is an inclusive group. All of our hikes begin with a moment to honor the ancestral people of the land and their living descendants, and introductions. You will also be welcomed to share a bit about why you are here and what your needs are. There is never any pressure to share anything, and if you want to be anonymous that is okay too.
Other things to keep in mind:
- Please read the hike description. Trails are chosen to be as enjoyable as possible for the most folks, but only you can decide if a hike is appropriate for you.
- Please do not offer anyone advice or assistance without asking first.
- If you have questions at any time, please ask. We’re here for you!
Our group hikes are for people who are disabled, chronically ill, neurodivergent, or otherwise have personal lived experience of disability (and their family members and caregivers). It is not a space for non-disabled people to learn. If you are not disabled and are interested in how to create access and inclusion in the outdoors, please contact us to set up a separate meeting.
Want to help make hikes happen? I spend at least 20 hours organizing each group hike. You can support this work with contributions via PayPal (one time donation) or Patreon (recurring monthly donation).
