***PLEASE NOTE! NEW FOR 2012 ARE MEMBERSHIP DUES, WITH DIFFERENT LEVELS OF MEMBERSHIP. PLEASE READ THE JAN 1ST 2012 DISCUSSION BOARD ENTRY FROM ANNA HUTHMAKER, FOUNDER OF TRAIL DAMES.***

Information about membership can be found at http://www.traildames.com/TDmembershipinfo.....

We are a hiking group for women only. The Dames enjoy the fellowship and friendship of other women, do hikes of 4 - 10 miles at least twice per month and enjoy the challenges of hiking the trails in and around Frederick County. Every now and then we might schedule a special hike to let our children or male friends come along; those hikes will be clearly marked so that Dames can decide if they want to attend. Well-behaved dogs on leash may be permitted on hikes at the discretion of the hike leader. Check the hike description or contact the leader to be sure about the ability of canines to come along. There may be overnight backpacking trips in the future and "gear classes" for those that have never backpacked or have not do so in many years. We take it slow - it's never a race - and will use "sweeps" to be sure everyone gets back to the trailhead at the end of the hike. Ages range from 20's to 70's. No one is ever too old or too inexperienced to join us! See you on the trail!

We're 300 Dames
