About the Event
Join Women of the Woods (WoW) for a ~4-mile hike on a combination of the Mattabesett trail and the Bear Hill Loop Trail. There are several rocky outcrops with nice views and lots of mountain laurel. Hopefully the mountain laurel will be in bloom. This hike has several short steep ups and downs and some rocky sections. The Off the Beaten Path Blog on the Bear Hill Loop will give you a feel for our hike (our route will be similar, but not identical). To keep the groups smaller, we are offering an additional hike to Bear Hill on Sat, June 10.
Please wear hiking boots and bring a pack with plenty of water and a snack/lunch. If you like hiking poles, I highly reccomend them for sections that are steep on rock or with loose rock.
Please consider making a donation to Everyone Outside. Suggested donation $5 to $20 per hike. We depend on donations from people like you to make our programs possible. Click here for more information on ways you can donate to Everyone Outside. Your donations keep our programs affordable and provide funding for scholarships for our other nature connection programs including our Girls Outside after-school program. Your donation is greatly appreciated! Women of the Woods is supported, in part, by a grant from REI.
Women of the Woods (WoW) is a program of Everyone Outside and is open to all those who identify as female or gender nonbinary. In addition to walking, we will take the time to admire the beauty around us, learn a bit about the flora or fauna, do some exercises to connect with the natural world (mostly sitting quietly) and enjoy each other's company.
Registration required. Directions will be sent to those that register and registrants will be notified via email if the hike is postponed or cancelled due to weather.
