For safety and security reasons, and so that we know who we are hiking with, we require that you use your real first name and post a real picture of yourself that clearly shows your face in order to join our group. Otherwise we will have to decline your membership. Please don't submit a membership request if you cannot meet these requirements. Thanks for your cooperation.

This is a women-only outdoors/exercise group suitable for novice and beginning hikers and other kinds of outdoorswomen, as well as those with more experience. We offer low-key events for women who just want to take a pleasant hike in the woods without the need for speed or competition. We typically hike at a pace that allows for conversation, picture-taking and enjoyment of the natural surroundings (usually about 2.5 miles per hour if we are on flat terrain). We also do other types of activities such as canoeing/kayaking, camping, picnics, outdoor concerts, etc.  Although our home city is Durham, this group is a statewide group. Our events take place all over NC and occasionally in other states. We are seeking experienced and enthusiastic organizers in all parts of NC. 

All of our events have an outdoors and/or exercise component. Some of our events are co-ed and allow male guests; most are for women only. Some are kid-friendly but most are for adults only. Whether a particular event is open to male guests or children is up to the organizer of the specific event. If you aren't sure whether it's OK to bring a male guest or a child, feel free to ask the organizer of that specific event. Some of our events have a limit on attendance due to limited availability of parking, organizer preference or other factors. Please respect the decision of the organizer regarding all parameters of the event.

If you have a question or comment about an event, contact the event host of that specific event. Please do not contact other organizers. And make sure you read the full event description before asking questions. Often you will find the answers in the event description.

With all Lady Trailblazers events, please be considerate and update your RSVP if your plans change. Your RSVP should accurately reflect your intention to participate or not participate in an event. If you RSVP "yes," your attendance is expected. Please don't be a no-show! If you RSVP, "no," or don't RSVP at all, please don't just show up for the event. We have a "3 strikes" attendance policy -- 3 no-shows subjects you to possible removal from the group. Please READ the policy, posted here:
