About our Women in the Wild Program

ITA’s Women in the Wild trail projects provide an encouraging environment for women to learn trail maintenance skills and find community with other volunteers who love the outdoors! No previous trail work skills are necessary and we welcome all female-identifying volunteers to join us for a project!

Contact trails@idahotrailsassociation.org if you have any questions about our Women in the Wild projects.

I came home from my first WOW weekend filled with such a powerful sense of accomplishment. It filled my heart to spend a weekend with a group of like-minded women that cared about trails and taking care of our Idahome. I have made friendships from this weekend that I might not have had the opportunity to have built. Was it hard? Yup. Was I tired? Yup. Was it worth it? Yup. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat.

A particular bond comes from lopping, sawing, and chopping with someone, especially when you can joke about mammograms and bad dates in between clearing trees. The sense of accomplishment was unreal- we were able to visually see the progress we made along the trail and knew our work would be appreciated by the guides and rangers who rely on clear trails to earn a living.
