Since 2011, the Trail Dames has sponsored The Summit, the country's first hiking and backpacking conference just for women. They were huge successes and this year we did it again!!

In 2016, The Summit was held July 15-17, in Cullowhee, North Carolina.

For more information on the next Summit, which will take place in 2018, please visit our website at www.traildamessummit.com.

We would love to see you there!!!
