Women Who Hike – Posted in: Basecamp

In this day and age, it is a seemingly rare thing for women to unite in the way that we at Women Who Hike have. That is because nature provides a safe solace for us to be ourselves, whether you are solo, with a friend or perhaps along for a group hike amongst women who you have never met before. There is just something about the act of hiking and being outdoors that opens the heart and lifts the soul.

When we started Women Who Hike, there was no other social media outlet like ours, where any woman could share stories, connect and even meet like minded women. There was no community where it felt safe to really share how hiking has changed lives. We wanted to create a community that truly encourages, unites and inspires women. And that means women of all backgrounds, geography and skill level. No woman goes and climbs Mt Everest without first having logged a few miles on their neighborhood trail first. We are here to encourage women to be brave in exploration, proud in accomplishment and rich in self love.

Each and every one of us has had a bad day, a bad week, a bad month or even a bad year, caused by either heartbreak or hangups. The source of negativity that is bringing you down can stem from millions of things. You could be dealing with a death, health problems, work stress, weight issues. You could be lacking self confidence or self worth. Maybe you’re feeling defeated or lost. Or maybe you just don’t know who you are yet. All those things, we have felt too.

As founders of this project, both of us have stories of our own that we have shared to demonstrate to the Women Who Hike community what we are all about. And through our experiences and finding the outdoors as our safe place and place of empowerment, we can confidently tell you that there is no better feeling of triumph than being on the trail or conquering a summit. Sure, the views are spectacular but above all, hiking has been our path to discovery, independence, growth and resilience.

By sharing our story and the testimonies of others like us, we hope to have INSPIRED you to get outside. To share the passion of outdoor culture and ENCOURAGE the independent you; The you who can do it all on their own. To be EMPOWERED by nature, because in nature, you can be whoever you want to be.
