Women in the Woods

Women working on the trail

Through our Women in the Woods program, we create several trail projects each year specially designed for women.  Whether you are a trail pro or are out to try trail work for the first time, Women in the Woods events are a blast.

Thanks to REI for sponsoring this great event!

Spring 2017 Project

Saturday, May 6
Little Si


Calling all girls and women—join REI #ForceofNature and the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust for the 2017 Women in the Woods event. Join other female volunteers and Greenway staff members to build a turnpike (aka an elevated walking surface) on the Boulder Garden Loop Trail at Little Si. This improvement will make a better hiking experience, removing the muddy pathway that currently exists.

Whether you are a regular trail "user and improver" or a curious novice, this is a great way to get involved. Learn how to use a McLeod. Meet other women interested in the outdoors. And make a difference on local trails!

Registration required. Register online .

Minimum age is 14.  Work/hiking boots and long pants required.

If you have questions about this event or would like to bring your group out, please contact our volunteer program team.
