Babes in the Woods was founded in 2009 by Lindsey Norman, who wanted to create a place for women of all fitness and skill levels to come together and enjoy outdoor activity and companionship in a fun, informal setting.

Today, Babes continues to offer a wide variety of exciting activities including:

  • Hiking
  • Kayaking
  • Camping
  • Backpacking
  • Stand-Up Paddleboarding
  • Ziplining
  • Indoor and Outdoor Sports
  • Rock Climbing
  • Trail Running
  • Social Outings
  • Local Attractions
  • Fitness Activities

If you'd like specific information on our upcoming events (we've got lots!) before you sign up, please click Contact the Organizer above and email me!  I'll be happy to give you a rundown on what's in the pipeline.

We're a free, casual club with membership from all walks of life and all fitness levels.  We offer a range of activities for our members, and you can be as active as you choose to be!  We encourage member participation in event leadership and welcome suggestions.  Come and join us in the great outdoors!

Please note that you must be 18 or older to join Babes in the Woods, and that our events are (unless otherwise marked) intended for adult Babes and their adult female guests.

Hope to see you soon!

Lori Summers, Babe-in-Chief
