WoW Sunset Hike, Mt Pisgah, Durham - 9/9/21
Time & Location
About the Event
Join Women of the Woods for socially distanced 2 to 2.5-mile loop hike in the nice woods near Mt. Pisgah. There are a some steep, rocky sections on the ascent up Mt. Pisgah. Once there, we will enjoy the view, eat a sack supper, watch the sunset, and then hike down (~1/2 mile) on an old road.
We will meet ~4:15, so we can start our hike at 4:30 PM. Please wear sturdy, hiking shoes, bring a pack with plenty of water, a sack dinner or snack and a flashlight (or headlamp) for the hike down. Hiking pole(s) strongly reccomend for the hike down at dusk. We will be done by ~8 PM depending on the group & the weather. Directions will be sent to those who register. We will start and end the hike in the same location. To keep the group small, we are offering this hike on both Thurs, Sept 9 and Sun, Sept 12 at 4:30 PM. Space limited to 12 women per hike. Masks are optional for this program since it is all outside.
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 $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. 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.
