About the Event

Join Women of the Woods for a 3 to 5-mile hike in the Rockland & Mica Ledges Preserves in Durham, Madison & Guilford. We will enjoy the many rocky outcrops, views from ledges, a few pretty streams and the beautiful Whitney Pond. About half the hike is on the Mattabesset Trail (AKA New England Trail or NET) which has some rocky ups and downs, but nothing very sustained. We may hike a really nice and fairly new section of the NET. If the weather is fine, we will hike 4 to 5 miles. Please wear hiking boots, bring a pack with plenty of water, and a snack. This hike is co-sponsored by the Middlesex Land Trust. which co-owns and maintains the Mica Ledges preserve with the Madison Land Conservation Trust. 

PLEASE NOTE: If the forecast is for very hot weather, I will notify you a few days ahead and we will shorten the hike and possibly change the start time to 8:30am. 

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 (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.
