Hike Name: Fat Girls Hiking Day at Flathead Lake

We will meet around 12 and have a great afternoon on the beach! There’s a 2.5 mile hiking trail, and we will plan to hike as a group around 1pm. Bring water toys, kayaks, SUPS, floaties if desired. BYO beverages and snacks if desired.

Native Lands: This event takes place on the on the Flathead Reservation; ancestral territories of the Salish, Kootenai, and Pendorelle nations. Fat Girls Hiking acknowledges that our hikers may be guests, settlers & immigrants to this land. We recognize that outdoor recreation is rooted in colonialism and commit ourselves to undoing these dynamics while we’re on the trail.

****PLEASE NOTE****Review the information below to ensure you‘re familiar with our community guidelines:

Fat Girls Hiking a safer space for fat folks and people who live in marginalized identities. We don’t allow any weight loss talk, diet talk or body shaming at any of our events or hikes.

Kids of all ages are welcome (unless noted, typically if there are unsafe conditions that wouldn’t be good for kids, this will be noted in the event description above.)

Dogs are allowed (unless the area where the hike is located doesn’t allow them, typically wildlife refuges or natural conservation areas, this will be noted in the event description above.)

We are inclusive to all genders, all sizes & abilities. We love when non-fat allies show up for us!

We go at the pace of the slowest hiker with NO shame! We lead hikes from the back, so the slowest folks receive the most support from hike leaders.

We are inclusive to queer folks, transgender folks, gender non-conforming folks, feminists, fat folks, people of color & all marginalized people.

Be mindful of gender pronouns! Don’t assume someone’s pronoun by their appearance. Every group hike starts with intros that include everyone stating their name & pronoun!
