About the Event
Join Women of the Woods (WoW) for ~4-mile socially distanced hike at the Timberland Preserve in Guilford. The preserve has rocky ridges, narrow a valleys, rocky streams and a pretty lake. It is one of Lucy's favorite places to hike. There will be several short steep sections of trail that will likely be somewhat slick with fallen leaves, but we will take our time. Roughly a third of the hike will be on wide trails or old dirt roads. To keep the group small, we are offering this hike on both Sun 12/13 at 1 PM and Mon 12/14 at 1 PM. Space limited to 10 women per hike. Masks are required for this program.
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 in places where the trail is covered with leaves.
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. This program is part of our Women of the Woods (WoW) programing and is meant for women or female identifying people only, please.
If you have been to program or two, please consider making a donation to Everyone Outside. Suggested donation $3 to $10 per hour of programming. 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. Our WoW hikes, our children’s programs and other Everyone Outside activities either have a sliding scale fee structure or are free (with a request for a donation from those who are able). We depend on our supporters to make our programs acessable, regardless of financial need. 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.
