Women's Wine Hiking Society™Empowering women in the outdoors while hitting happy hour on the trail BECOME A MEMBER
Where Sisterhood, Hiking, & Booze Meet
From day hikes and backpacking trips, to weekend getaways and wine tastings, if you’re looking to explore the outdoors with other badass women (in a fun & judgment-free zone), grab your hiking shoes and join us! (Drinking totally optional)
A Social Club with a Hiking Problem
We’re not the group that races to the top. We’re the group that’s chatting the whole time. Unlike other groups, we make sure no one hikes alone. It’s all about community and connection for us (and never competition). The hiking is just the bonus.
If we sound like your cup of tea (or should we say, glass of wine), follow these steps to join us.
- Start by creating a free membership on our website. You can do that here. (This will also add you to our email list so you won’t miss any of our events.)
- Then, log into your account and go to our Events tab. You’ll see our calendar highlighted with all our events.
- Choose from one of our 6-8 monthly day hikes. Or, choose one of our camping and backpacking trips or weekend getaways.
- After you read the details of the event, scroll down and click Reserve a Spot to sign up.
Our hikes are limited to 12-15 people. We do this for two reasons: to minimize our footprint on the trail and to make the group more intimate so you can really get to know each other.

When you hike with a group of women, the chance of seeing wildlife goes way down. But, the chance you’ll make a new friend, have great conversation, learn something new, or try peanut butter whiskey for the first time is 100%.
Giving Back, One Hike at a Time
When you go to sign up for a day hike, you’ll see there’s a $5 fee. At the end of the year, we donate 20% of all day hike fees to a nonprofit related to women, the outdoors, or both.
How do we pick a non-profit to support? We start by get suggestions from our members. Then, we pick 3 or 4 and put it back out to our members for a vote.
For 2023, we will be donating 20% of all day hike fees to Missing Murdered and Indigenous Women (MMIW) of Utah.
MMIW of Utah advocates for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and relatives. They amplify the voices of the silenced by empowering indigenous women and suppressed communities, and they share their stories to honor those who have been murdered and suffered injustice.
I came across the Wine Hiking Society in one of the loneliest times of my life. Through this group, I was introduced to a community of women I didn’t know existed, a community I didn’t know I could be a part of. I’ve been able to tag along on some of the most epic adventures I’ve had thus far. My life is much brighter with this group in it.
“At 60, I love the mountains more than ever. There is no age in the hills with this group: just peace, likeminded women, and some pretty good beverages. Love these ladies.”
More Alike Than Different
On every group hike we do, you’ll hear women, many of whom have just met, say things like, “Wow. That sounds just like what I’m going through.” “Oh my god, that sounds just like my situation.” Most our lives, we women are made to feel in competition with each other, to see other women as the enemy. We get caught up in gossiping and tearing each other down to make ourselves feel better.
But when it comes down to it, as women, many of us have the same struggles, the same insecurities. As women, a lot of us are fighting the same battles.
The Wine Hiking Society is about more than hiking and wine. Those are just the common interests that bring us together. We’re about empowering women to enjoy the outdoors, to see how capable they are.
sisterhood | sis·ter·hood | noun
1) the relationship between sisters. 2) a feeling of kinship with and closeness to a group of women or all women. 3) an association or community of women linked by a common interest.

Don't Miss a Beat!
We women aren’t encouraged from a young age to get into the outdoors. It can be very intimidating to get into hiking or backpacking, especially when you grow up feeling like you don’t belong in the outdoors. Like it isn’t a place for you.
There’s no better way to remove some of the fear of the outdoors–and of making new friends–than to get out with a group of supportive women (and a glass of wine, of course).
