What we're about

Adventurous women, unite! This group is for ladies who want to spend more time outdoors in the company of other rad women, whether it's your first time crumpling newspaper into balls for tinder or your hundredth. In other words, all skill/experience levels are welcome.

We'll post here about our upcoming overnight adventures, plus day hikes and happy hours local to the Bay Area.

Trail Mavens empowers women to be the fire-starters, the tent-pitchers, and the map-readers, creating opportunities to adventure, leadership, and starry-night campfire conversation in the great outdoors.
