Infographic by @ohhappydani, “Areas To Diversify In Daily Life…” We know what we look like here at @womenwhohike. We are a women’s hiking group that is struggling with diversity. We are, and we have. As an org, and as the leader here, it falls on me @im_nicolemarie to get this right. But we haven’t gotten it right. It’s not that we’re not working on it. It’s not that we’re not trying. It’s that this work is ongoing. "Perfectio...

Where can I go hiking? Are the trails closed? How do I find out? Who do I call?

Recreation comes in all forms. Whether you’re a hiker or a climber, or simply getting out for a walk or a picnic, you’re probably doing so on lands that are public. I’...

Can we still go hiking? **UPDATED MARCH 30TH** On Thursday evening, March 19th a Stay At Home order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 went into effect for all of California. Many people were confused at what the order meant for getting outside and going hiking. We spoke to one of our state legislators the next morning for the specifics about how we should and could still get outside, while also staying at home. In this bl...

It’s that time of year when pictures of those infamous crystal blue waterfalls start permeating your newsfeed. A clear reminder that Havasupai permit season is upon us. I was lucky enough to visit this beautiful place last May with a group of three other women. Yet access to this place is not as simple as just showing up or signing online to grab a permit last minute. Permits sell out almost immediately each year and, from fir...

If you live in an area where the temperatures get cold in the winter, you’ve probably heard the saying “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.”

If you’re a Minnesotan, you’ve probably also groaned or rolled your eyes a little when people say that to you in January. Never fear, in addition to previous posts about warm layering tips, here’s a handy list of things I’ve used to stay warm or comfy on the trail!

Hello all! My name is Lindsey and this year I am launching a pilot season of my Thruhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, a thruhiking prep program! Over the last few years I have discovered that while I have a deep love of all things planning not everyone feels that way. I hear from folks, time and time again, that they would love to take on a thruhike but the logistics of planning it are too much for them. Even folks who do successfu...

As summer comes to a close, we’re reminiscing on one of our favorite hiking trips... in Idaho! We spent a week in Idaho starting our trip in the Sawtooth Mountains and ended our trip in Sun Valley. The highlight of the trip was getting to hike and backpack in the Sawtooth National Forest along the White Clouds Loop.
