Group hike w/The Venture Out Project – BOSTON, MA – 10/26

RSVP BELOW!

Unlikely Hikers creates safer, supportive, intentional, body-positive outdoor community for people underrepresented in outdoor culture (people of color, people of size, trans, queer and beyond) We hike together slowly 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!

Please tell your friends, families and communities and LET’S HIKE!

I am so excited to lead this hike with The Venture Out Project. Their mission of creating adventure experiences for queer and trans folks is right up our alley, right? And rumor has it, we may be partnering on another event or two after this.

Supporting this hike is REI! They were our first brand partnership and we are still going strong! We’ll have snacks, beverages and a little swag to give out!

LOCATION: Breakheart Ridge

TIME: 9am

TRAIL STATS: about 4 miles, 200-400 feet of elevation gain. We’ll be doing a lengthened variation of this trail: https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/massachusetts/pearce-lake-and-upper-pond-trail?p=24020300

Dogs & kids are welcome. Please care for your dogs properly and disclose any special info about them so we can all respect boundaries. 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
