I’m Ruth, and my little hiker is Ellie. We joined Hike it Baby in November 2017, when she was just two months old. I was a new mom, with a new baby, in a new place looking for a community to connect to and a way to get moving gently. In the Fall of 2018 we opened a new branch, Hike it Baby Lebanon-Hershey, Pa. The new branch is a little closer to home, and hope to increase participation in our local community. I’ve always love the outdoors and an occasional hike and Hike it Baby has connected me to the outdoors in a new region of the country. I am proud to get outdoors more frequently and hope to raise a daughter that loves to be outside.
