What is the 10,000 Women Trail Project?

Hike it Baby is launching the 10,000 Women Trail Project, an initiative to get women and girls on trails all across North America. Over the next year, our goal is to encourage women to bring female friends and family on a trail at least once a month.

Please note that due to the shipping ability of prize sponsors prizes are limited to U.S. participants.

All you have to do is register, pick a trail to hike every month for a year, then invite your sisters, mom, aunts, and friends to join you. Log your hikes and make sure to add in the number of women you inspired to get out every hike. Keep track of your miles all year long.
Women and gender nonconforming folks are welcome to enroll in the 10,000 Women Trail Project. This is a FREE program, and there is no requirement other than getting on trail and bringing at least one other woman or girl with you.
To see if, together, we can inspire 10,000 women to hike and log their adventures in 2018. To be a legitimate hike, you must log your hike and have brought at least one other woman or girl on a trail with you.
Each month, you will receive an email reminding you to log hikes, and you can follow the Facebook group to keep you inspired. Use the logging tools to watch your miles add up, see how many women are hiking alongside you. The logging tool lets you see how many friends you personally have inspired to get on a trail over the course of a year. We’ll also have blogs, inspirational Facebook posts and giveaways happening throughout the year!
The satisfaction of knowing you are part of a movement to help encourage more women and girls to get outside and hike. If you register with the program, you can log your hikes and be entered to win prizes. This is a FREE program! At the end of the year, one grand prize winner will receive a weekend camping set up with a tent, sleeping gear and $300 gift certificate to the state or federal park of your choice—so you can plan an awesome adventure with your gal pals, your family or on your own!
Registration opens November 1, 2017! The 10,000 Women Trail Project runs from November 1, 2017, through September 1, 2018. Complete and log as many hikes as you can during that time. To be a “trackable” hike, you must bring along another woman or girl on your hike (mother, daughter, sister, girlfriend, aunt) and record it. Invite other women to join in the challenge!
