Our Story

Our Mission:

In this day and age, it is a seemingly rare thing for women to unite in the way that we have through Women Who Hike. Women Who Hike is an organization that empowers women on and off the trail. Through each of our hiking journeys, we are able to connect to and inspire one another. Nature and the trail is a place that we can come as we are and come together. Whether you're a solo hiker or hiking with friends or attending a group hike, we have come to find that there is something about the trail that opens the heart and lifts the soul.


When we started Women Who Hike in 2015, there was no other social media outlet like ours. What began as a social media movement as now transcended itself both online and outdoors thanks to the women who are a part of us and our Women Who Hike communities. We invite you to be a part of Women Who Hike by becoming a member on our website, attending one of our group hikes or by connecting with the women who hike in your community by joining one of our local or regional Facebook groups


As a woman who hikes, I, founder Nicole Brown, am confident in all that the trail provides. Each and every one of us has had a bad day, a bad week, a bad month or even a bad year, caused by heartbreak or hangups. I know that when I step onto the trail, hit the road in search or exploration or conquer a peak or hiking goal, I feel liberated. Strong. Capable. Just as I am certain that the trail provides, I am certain in that all of you, women who hike, can find the same strength and solace from hiking too. I hope that in reading this, following us on social media, becoming a member or attending one of our hikes you are able to find what you are looking for on and off the trail.
