Event description

Description

Join the "lady lifters" of the Bay Area and help shift the visual represenation of who gets the outdoors! The Black Girls Hike was created to encourage women of color to explore the great outdoors and make new friends to share those experiences with! If you have never been hiking we invite you to start and explore the beauty of nature.

And if you aren't a woman of color, you are welcome to join us too! We will never discriminate against women who are not Black, transgender, non-binary, and/or fluid. Instead, we are here to create a brave and safe space for the Black women in our community to get outside and go have fun!

We will be hiking at the Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve which is located on the western slopes of the Santa Cruz Mountains overlooking Half Moon Bay. The centerpiece of this 4,711-acre Preserve is Purisima Creek Canyon, with its towering redwoods, rushing creek, and understory of ferns, berries, and wildflowers. Magnificent views of the coast and Half Moon Bay are visible from the northern part of the preserve.

Please remember to bring a water bottle (No Plastic Bottles), snacks and a pair of good shoes!
