Join Women of the Woods, a program of Everyone Outside, for a 4-mile hike on a combination of the Mattabesett Trail and the Bear Hill Loop Trail in Middletown Wednesday, June 7 at 9 a.m. and Saturday, June 10 at 9:30 a.m. There are several rocky outcrops with nice views and lots of mountain laurel. Hopefully the laurel will be in bloom. This hike has several short steep ups and downs and some rocky sections. For additional information and to register, visit EveryoneOutside.org or email Lucy@EveryoneOutside.org.
Women of the Woods (WoW) offers monthly hikes/programs. In addition to hiking/walking, the group takes time to admire the beauty, learn a bit about the flora and fauna and do some exercises to connect with the natural world. WoW hikes are open to all who identify as female or gender nonbinary.
