So what is a trail dame? A trail dame is any woman who wants to see all the beauty being out in nature has to offer and make wonderful and lasting friendships along the way. The Maine Trail Dames come from all over Maine and plan hikes all over the state of Maine. We do everything from day hikes to weekend long jaunts. We offer occasional meetings to discuss wilderness ethics, camp safety, backpacking, wilderness survival and other topics that interest our members. We also may be found doing trail magic during hiking season for Appalachian Trail hikers.
