Have you ever WALKED
through the WOODS?

Have you heard the LAUGHTER of women
SING out over the trail?

Have you ever found yourself filled with JOY
standing on a MOUNTAINTOP?

Do you even KNOW what
you are CAPABLE of?

Who We Are

Trail Dames is a hiking club for women of a curvy nature. We hike slowly, looking closely at the beauty that is all around us. We rest when we need to, but then we keep going. We know that there is no feeling in the entire world like the feeling of accomplishing your goal.

A message from your Founder-

When I started Trail Dames, I wanted to create a place where all women were loved, respected and appreciated. I have never wavered from that, and have done my best to live up to that idea. But today, it is necessary to expand on that. Our Black Dames matter. Your voices, your experience and your lives matter. You matter to me, and you matter to Trail Dames.

-Anna Huthmaker
Founder, Trail Dames
