Come Play With Us!
Women Outdoors members can enjoy getting together with other outdoor enthusiasts when visiting different parts of the country. With Women Outdoors you can share adventures and develop new friendships. Take a look at each region’s page to see what fun awaits you.
Come play with Connecticut Women Outdoors. From biking in Granby to tubing down the Farmington River to kayaking at Mansfield Hollow, you’ll have lots of fun with us.
Also known as the Women Outdoors Chapter with Everything, the Greater Boston chapter has taken advantage of its close proximity to Cape Cod for trips full of swimming, kayaking, biking and lots of lobster.
Western Mass is home to the largest regional chapter of Women Outdoors. We enjoy paddling on the Connecticut River, hiking in the Holyoke Range, and of course, biking in the ever popular Jane’s Slow Poke Bike Ride.
We hail from the DMV - District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia - as well as Pennsylvania and Delaware. We’ll travel from the Atlantic Ocean to the Shenandoah Mountains in search of good hiking, biking, kayaking and camping.
We have the great good fortune of spectacular hiking in Vermont’s Green Mountains and New Hampshire’s White Mountains including gorgeous stretches of the Appalachian Trail.
Finger Lakes Region of New York State
The Finger Lakes Region is world-famous for its spectacular glacier-formed waterfalls and gorges, its vineyards along scenic back roads, and its 13 lakes, including Lake Cayuga. Our area is perfect for hiking, biking, and all forms of paddling, plus fabulous birding, including the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge. We are nearby Rochester, Syracuse and Ithaca.
Rhode Island/Central and Southeastern MA
Some of our favorite activities include the Norman Bird Sanctuary Walk, biking in Myles Standish State Forest, and canoeing and kayaking on the Wood River.
Each chapter is headed by a regional contact – affectionately known as an RC – who is the organizer, facilitator and initiator of activities and events at the local level. The RCs are the people who make it all happen; without them there would be no Women Outdoors.
Regional contacts organize at least one event a quarter, although many regions sponsor one or more outings every month. Some of the more popular activities include hiking, biking, camping and kayaking, or a combination of these. Winter months will find regional chapters in colder climes going cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or just winter hiking.
