About the Event
Join Women of the Woods for a ~3-mile socially distanced hike at River Highlands State Park in Cromwell. The high bluff at the preserve give wonderful view both up and down the CT River. Our hike will take us to a couple bluff viewpoints and down into a small gorge to get to river level. If we have had recent rain the trail may be a bit slick in places, especially if there are still fallen leaves on it. . To keep the group small, we are offering this hike on both Sat, Dec 12 at 1:30 PM and Tues, Dec 14 at 1 PM. The hike on Dec 14 will be a bit longer and faster paced. Space limited to 12 women per hike. Masks are optional for this program since it is all outside.
Please wear sturdy hiking shoes, bring a pack with water, a snack and dress for the weather. You may want to bring hiking poles if you like the extra support and stability they provide, especially if we have had recent damp weather. Click here for a map.
Women of the Woods is a program of Everyone Outside. 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. Women of the Woods (WoW) is a program of Everyone Outside and is open to all those who identify as female or gender nonbinary.
If you have been on a hike or two, 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. Your donation is greatly appreciated! Women of the Woods is supported, in part, by a grant from the Community Foundation of Middlesex County's Sari Rosenbaum Fund for Women and Girls
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.
