Group hike (local) – ACCESSIBLE – Steigerwald Lake – 6/29

PLEASE RSVP on form below for full info on hike (terrain details, carpooling, meet-up spots and time). Expect response e-mail within a few days. RSVPs close at 6pm (pst) the day prior to the hike.

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 gym 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!


ACCESSIBLE group hikes happen quarterly, or upon request, and tend to be two miles or less, suitable for folks who use mobility devices, with little to no elevation gain. These are specifically intended for those who want to get out into nature, but have physical or health matters that may limit movement (chronic pain cuties, fat folks, people who might be exercising for the first time and/or people who may have vulnerabilities that require emotional support). All of our hikes are body- & fat-positive, but this series has an even stronger emphasis on this.

This hike is in partnership with the Next Adventure!

Date: Saturday, June29th, 2019

Location: Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge

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

Trail stats: 2 miles round trip, 0 ft elevation gain, out-n-back. This trail is partially paved, but mostly gravel. If you’re using a wheelchair, you’ll need all-terrain tires. If this is a hindrance, let me know and I’ll pick a different trail xo

Dogs are not allowed at Steigerwald, unfortunately. Kids are welcome on our hikes, but I can’t promise kid-appropriate conversations within a group of mostly adults.


BEFORE JOINING ONE OF OUR GROUP HIKES:

We want you to to have the most fun and supportive experience possible! Ask yourself, “how does my body like to hike?” No hike is “one size fits all” and choosing the wrong trail could potentially harm you. What is your ideal mileage? Elevation gain? Feel free to ask any questions if you don’t know what some of this means. Beginners are so welcome! xo

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