About the Event
Cancelled due to rain.
Join Women of the Woods for a 3.5 - mile hike to the top of Talcott Mtn in Simsbury. There are some steep sections on this hike both on an old gravel road and narrow trail. There is a nice rocky ridge walk with some views and then a big view at the top, including a close to 360 view from the top of Heublein tower. Hopefully there will still be some fall color.
Please wear sturdy hiking shoes, bring a pack with an extra layer, water, and a snack. We will be done by roughly 5:30 PM depending on the group & the weather. Directions will be sent to those who register.
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.
