The 10k Women Trail Project – Let’s Hit the Trails Ladies

Big news this month Mountain Mom and Tots readers! I was selected as a TrailBlazer for the 10k Women Trail Project, a year long initiative coordinated by the non-profit Hike it Baby and funded by a grant from REI’s Force of Nature effort.

I’m so excited to be part of this program, because I firmly believe everybody needs a friend or mentor to help them get outdoors. I know the 10k Women Trail Project will be helpful for a lot of you readers, so I thought I’d answer some questions about it so you can join in the hiking party!

Every month I offer an outdoor challenge to help families explore outdoors. So far this year, participants have skied, listened for wildlife, biked five miles, slept outdoors and more. Each month’s challenge has been unique, but out of all of them, I’m most excited for the July Outdoor Challenge.

Why? Because in July I’m partnering with Hike Like a Woman to offer more than just a challenge with a prize, we’re planning a mini-course on hiking with kids and we want you to join us!
