About our hikes …
Every G.O. hike has at least four women volunteer chaperones, eager to share their passion for the outdoors with the next generation!
Please remember that each hiker must have a completed Health History Record on file. Your child’s immunization record is required as part of the form. You can scan and email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org before the hike or bring the completed form on the day of the hike. This form will be kept on file for future hikes, so you only have to fill it out once.
Each hike begins with a fun get-to-know-you game and a brief lesson, from Leave No Trace principles to fun historical facts about the trail and everything in between. Wear weather-appropriate clothing and bring water and light snacks.
While the mission of Girls Outside is to enjoy nature, we also hope these outings foster independence and so we encourage parents to let their girls do the hike on their own as a part of the group. Remember to leave electronic devices at home to better enjoy time in nature.
These hikes are free! Help us spread the word or invite a friend’s child by sharing our girlsoutside.org link. To see the fun we have on our hikes, visit our photo gallery on Facebook.
