Hikers will bring people together in protest and friendship as they participate in 4 different town events along the route (there will be one community event in each impacted county). These events are being planned by members of the impacted communities, which will ensure the events are organic and candid expressions of the community's story. Come check out an event near you!

Come check out Hike the Pipe!'s community event on the Rogue River! Hikers will descend from the Cascade mountains and arrive to the Shady Cove event by boat. Yes indeed, the hikers will be floating five miles of the Rogue River and would like to have you and your family join them! Any interested kayaktivists should meet hikers at Rogue Elk at 10am that morning for a 5 mile float along the beautiful Rogue River. Come celebrate this public treasure and tell our policy makers that the Rogue is not for sale!
