What we're about

I love how much beauty there is outside in this city! There is so much to do! I have created this group to be aimed at beginner to intermediate hiking and cycling women of the Des Moines metro area.

I want this group to be a welcoming haven for women wanting to get started or continue growing in their passion for the outdoors.

I am not an expert, but I do love the outdoors and want to share this passion with other women to create a real community.

We will all be beginner or intermediate level hikers and cyclists who want to be active, get outside, enjoy some fresh air and want to foster friendship and inclusion.


1) This group will have a 30 day free trial period. A $10 ANNUAL membership fee will be due at the end of the 30 days. You can pay directly to Meetup via the app or website.

2) If you RSVP to an event and fail to show, there is a 3 strikes "No Show" policy. At the third time you will be removed from the group as this means we were waiting for you unnecessarily to start the event. I hope you understand this policy.

3) If you have any questions or concerns please message me privately on meetup.com private messaging. The comment section is for uplifting and positive commentary only. If you leave any unnecessary negative feedback you may be removed from the group.

4) You agree to read the full description of each event and see if it fits your skill level. The organizer and volunteers are not responsible or assume any liability if you fall or injure yourself if you attend to any of the voluntary events. If you attend it is with the the sole understanding that you are fully responsible and assume all consequences from attending the event. We operate this group as a means to gather people but we are all responsible of our own well being.
