Dames in the New York area have two chapters to choose from!!! We suggest you join both and take advantage of all of the fun activities the Dames have to offer!

Rebecca Ross
Head, Lower Hudson Valley

My name is Rebecca but you can call me Bec for short--because I am. But what I lack in stature, I make up for in humor, motivation, and my love of the outdoors. I grew up in a small Dutch-settled fishing village in New York (also known as Brooklyn) where taking long walks and camping was the norm in my family. Since moving to the Hudson Valley with my husband and kids, I've discovered that I love hiking. Being in the woods consistently sparks my creativity, my love for adventure, my curiosity, and my confidence. The reward of a beautiful view, the sense of accomplishment at the end of a hike, and the "I worked hard, I deserve this" feeling when taking a break--no matter how often!--is something that I want to share with other hike-minded women. Getting out on the trail can be daunting, but I hope you'll join us. If you believe that nature is something to be savored and not hurried, and if you're searching for a diverse group of supportive women of all ages and experience levels working together to summit those mountains, Trail Dames is the place for you.
