Unlikely Hikers creates safer, supportive, intentional, body-positive outdoor community for people underrepresented in outdoors culture (people of color, people of size, trans, queer and beyond) We hike at a slower pace, together as a group. No hiker left behind! No bros! Absolutely no diet or weight loss talk. Be mindful of gender pronouns, group dynamics, microaggressions, cultural appropriation and different physical ability levels. People of all genders welcome!


This hike is part of the annual, month-long event, #wehiketoheal. From their website “encourages women all over the world to tap into the healing and empowering influences within themselves and the Great Outdoors. #wehiketoheal’s goal is to create a healing environment of gratitude and connection for women…everywhere.” For our particular event, people of ALL genders are welcome!

Join the movement! Sign up for weekly mindfulness resources, for the month of March, at #wehiketoheal. There are multiple membership tiers, including a FREE one! I can, personally, attest to the great work they’re doing. NOTE: the actual hike sign-up is below ↓

This FREE hike is awesomely supported by, Next Adventure!

Series: LOWER INTENSITY group hikes are slower paced with elevation gains under 500 feet and less than five miles. It does not mean “easy!” There will be hills, but we’ll climb them at our own pace. All of our hikes are body- & fat-positive, but this series has an even stronger emphasis on this. “General” hikers are welcome as long as they are mindful of the group pace. Beginners welcome!

Date: Saturday, March 30th

Location: Tryon Creek State Natural Area

Time: 8am for carpooling (RSVP for more info)

Trail stats: 4 miles, 500 feet of elevation gain

Dogs & kids are welcome, but I can’t promise kid-appropriate conversations within a group of adults. Please care for your dogs properly and disclose any special info about them so we can all respect boundaries.

RSVPs close at 6pm (pst) the day prior to the hike.
