YiW's SHE HIKES Initiative is based on our fundamental belief that we need to do our part to continue uplifting and empowering the women of our communities. We think there are few things as empowering as feeling at home in nature. SHE HIKES backpacking trips are YiW Outings that are exclusively for female participants and chaperones and are led by an all-female YiW leadership team!
