Trail Dames is hiking club for women of a curvy nature! However, all women are welcome!
The Dames are a group of women who are looking for a chance to get out and see the beauty that this world has to offer. We hike slowly, enjoying every second, because we know that it is not the destination that is important, but the journey.
And when we reach the top of every mountain, you will find us doing the "Dance of the Real Woman" and celebrating the life that is in us all!
