Description
The Greenway Trust has offered the Women in the Woods series since 2010 to address the gender gap in the trail community and build community for women-identified and non-binary outdoor enthusiasts. Whether you are a trail pro or are out to try trail work for the first time, Women in the Woods events are a blast.

This event will mark the third Women in the Woods event of the summer! Be sure to join us on the east side of the Cascades, working on the Thorp Creek Trail! This a trail with moderate difficulty and is well frequented as a day hike. It meanders through old growth forests and grassy hillsides as hikers, bikers and equestrians alike follow the stream to Lake Kachess. Due to its popularity, this trail needs a lot of volunteer support in maintaining tread and creating a safe access point to the water. Thanks for volunteering with us!

Trail needs and accessibility vary during the summer season, please be aware of potential site change but expect to hear from us before the event. Thank you for your understanding!

Project Difficulty
Moderate to Strenuous
Age Restriction
Ages 14 and up.
