About Our Xtreme Hike

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Xtreme Hike program takes hikers through some of the most scenic trails in the nation to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis. Xtreme Hike is about reaching new heights physically and philanthropically. It is a journey of passion, determination, and personal triumph, as much as it is an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people with cystic fibrosis. Hikers ages 18 and up may participate. Click here to read the full Hike Event Policy

The journey starts the moment you sign up. You will receive personal coaching, participate in training hikes and connect with a community of people who share your aspiration to reach new heights. Learn about Xtreme Hike events across the country.

What Makes This Hike Unique

The Oregon & SW Washington Chapter’s Xtreme Hike will stretch for 18+ miles, highlighting sections of the famed Pacific Crest Trail and weaving through some of the most scenic sections of the Mt. Hood wilderness. Our 2022 Xtreme Hike is limited to 25 hikers.
