Babes Off the Beaten Path

COVID-19 Alert: Given the uncertainty of the ability to travel safely in the coming months, we have made the decision to postpone planning for our 2020 annual trip. We will reassess the situation this summer, and at that time will look ahead to the feasibility of organizing a trip for spring 2021. The annual trip is a major highlight for WWW every year, so this is not a decision we made without sadness! We’re glad as always to have you as part of our community, and encourage all to still get outside an enjoy nature, albeit at at safe distance from others.

Babes Off the Beaten Path is a yearly opportunity for Wild Wilderness Women to come together and build community while having an exceptional outdoors experience.

This annual adventure takes place outside any chapter’s local haunts, with an eye to the more extraordinary locations in the United States. It is an opportunity for women to share skills, bringing together both new and seasoned backpackers, paddlers, rock climbers, and more. It is a chance to escape into nature and experience empowerment and support through new challenges and friendships.

A look back at where we’ve been…

For our inaugural trip in August 2016, we headed into Glacier National Park for three nights and four days of backcountry adventure.

In 2017, we ventured to Acadia National Park for kayaking, rock scrambling, stargazing, and the most epic campfire pancake-flip of all time.

In 2018, we traversed North Cascades National Park, out-hiking every raging forest fire in a 300-mile radius to get some mountain views.

In 2019, we headed to Zion National Park in Utah to hike with the angels, slosh through the Virgin River, and enjoy a full moon on a canyon overlook on Friday the 13th.

Make sure to check out our blog as we work to share the vastness of this experience with you, and inspire you to also create your own new definition of “babe.

This annual trip is also an opportunity to partner with great companies who support outdoorswomen and want to join us in our mission to build friendships, foster good feels, and empower women by being a visible encouragement and champion for other women to get outdoors and engage meaningfully with the outdoors.
