FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

Making it easier to get to the fun and new friends faster
How do I sign up for a hike?

The first thing you want to do is sign up for a membership, free or VIP. Then, make sure you are logged in. After that, head to our Events page and choose a hike. Once you’ve read all the deets about the hike, scroll down and click Reserve Spot.

How do I become a member?

Oh! That’s an easy one. Go here to create an account. You can choose between a free membership and a VIP membership. Then,  agree to the liability release form and the privacy policy and hit Register! You’re all set!

What kind of memberships are there?

We have two membership options: free and VIP. VIP members get first dibs on all events. They can access all events as soon as they are posted to the calendar (which is at least 3 months out). Free members can sign up for day hikes 2 weeks out.

VIP members also get to participate in FREE quarterly VIP-only events. They also get 10% off select merchandise. And they get credit toward any day hike of their choice.  All those perks are only $150 a year!

We’re  currently working on adding even more perks!

All of our community service events are free and available to everyone from the moment they are posted. Free members can access all new member hikes as soon as they hit the calendar.

What kind of events do you offer?

Cindy here! In Utah, we host 6-8 monthly day hike events and 1 quarterly community service event. We also host camping trips. Women can choose to tent camp or car camp for those.

Angelique and I love hosting backpacking trips. Our favorite is the beginner backpacking trip we do in Canyonlands National Park every spring and fall. Women from all over join us!

Oh, and I can’t forget our weekend getaways, which involve wine tasting, hiking, and other fun activities like biking, yoga, and paddle boarding!

What if I don't drink?

Angelique here! I’ll tackle this question. It’s totally fine if you don’t drink! I don’t drink either, and I always have a great time on the hikes. There’s no pressure at all to consume alcohol.

Who typically goes on your hikes?

Our trips and hikes are exclusively for women. Typically, our hikers are between the ages of 30-65 and are all at varying levels of fitness. We do have a very active over 50 group. (Everyone wants to be over 50 now!) Our over 50 members also join our other hikes. We women have so many shared experiences and struggles. We’ve found age doesn’t matter (except for wine, of course).

Why do you charge $5 for day hikes?
We charge $5 for a few reasons:
A. To give back to the community: 20% of all day hike fees are donated to a charity that supports/promotes women in the outdoors. 2023’s donation will go to MMIW-Utah (advocates for missing and murdered indigenous women)
B. To pay for website hosting and maintenance fees so you don’t have to be on social media to join us
C. To buy-in / accountability of attendees so people don’t take spots and then no-show
D. To buy ambassador gifts in thanks with for hosting and organizing events
Can I keep up with others? Will I be too slow?

Angelique here. We’re not the group that races to the top. We’re the group that’s chatting the whole time. It’s all about community and connection for us. Unlike other groups, we make sure no one hikes alone.

If you’re still not sure, try one of our Slow & Easy hikes to get a feel for our group.

I’ll add (Cindy here) that we do list pace expectations on our HARD hikes. This is to help people not put themselves or other hikers at risk of getting hurt. Most of our hikes are easy to moderate, though, so you have lots of options.

What if I'm new to hiking?

You don’t have to be an experienced hiker to hike with us!  We provide a packing list for our events, from day hikes to weekend getaways and backpacking trips. That way, you always know what you need!

We also offer classes throughout the year to educate and empower you. Watch for classes like Basic Wilderness First Aid, Backpacking 101, Nutrition on the Trail, and Winter Hiking 101.

Do I need to be super fit to hike with you?

Not at all! We’re not the hiking group that takes off and leaves you in the dust. You don’t have to be a serious hiker, but it’s probably ideal if you do some kind of regular activity (feel free to email us if you have questions about this!).

If you’re just starting out or are coming back from an injury or illness, our Slow & Easy hikes are a great option.

Our goal is to make the experience fun and inclusive for all. While we love a good hike, community and connection always come first.

Will it be awkward if I go alone? Will everyone already know each other?

Absolutely not! We usually have about 50% returning hikers and 50% newbies. Every new person is welcome, and every returning hiker is welcoming. This is a clique-free, drama-free zone.

As I always say (Angelique here, btw), we might show up as strangers, but we always leave as friends!

Are the hikes safe?

Cindy here! Our hikes and trips are well-planned and well-researched. We are experienced at what we do and passionate about making sure you have the best time possible. We worry about things so you don’t have to!

That sounds like a lot of planning. What if I don’t know what to pack?

We’ve got you covered! We know that you’re probably responsible for planning everything in your daily life and for your family, so we’re taking all the guesswork out of it. You’ll get a detailed itemized list of what to pack for any event you sign up for

How many people can go on a hike?

Our day hikes are limited to 12-15 women. One reason is to reduce our footprint on the trail. But the main reason is to keep the hikes more initimate so everyone can get to know each other.

Becaause of space, our backpacking trips and weekend getaways are limited to 8-10 women.
