Where Sisterhood, Hiking, & Booze Meet

See what we're about

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.

  1. Create a free membership on our website. You can do that here.
  2. Then, go to our Events tab. You’ll see our calendar highlighted with all our events.
  3. Choose from one of our day hikes. Or, choose one of our camping and backpacking trips or weekend getaways.
  4. 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.

Worried a hike will fill before you get signed up? Upgrade to our VIP membership (for Utah members only). Not only will you get early access to all of our events, but you’ll also get invitations to VIP-only campouts and events. Learn more here.

Upcoming Events

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 getting suggestions from our members. Then, we pick 3 or 4 and put it back out to our members for a vote.

For 2024, we will be donating 20% of all day hike fees to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah (WRC).

WRC of Northern Utah is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to the care and rehabilitation of wildlife. Each year their team successfully releases over 100 different species of native wildlife. They also provide education to the community in regards to our wild friends and stewardship of the environment that we share.

Reviews & Testimonials

Almost six months ago, I took a chance and signed up for a 3-day backpacking trip with a women's hiking group I had never hiked with before (WHS). I figured that if these women liked hiking and the outdoors and happy hour, I'd find at least one friend amongst them. I want to say that I'm so glad I took a risk and, in turn, met so many brilliant, funny, sincere, and lovely women.

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 59, 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.”

Angelique and Cindy are knowledgeable, compassionate, beyond helpful, fun, organized, and passionate about hiking, backpacking, and taking care of Mother Earth.

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 of 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.

Don't Miss a Beat!

As women, we’re not always 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).
