Event description

Description

All Missoula area hikes will be posted on EventBrite. “Follow” FGH on EventBrite to receive an email any time a hike is posted. We have 1 incredible ambassador, Shelby, and would love to add another to work as a team researching & leading hikes & building outdoor community in Missoula. Email Summer at fatgirlshiking@gmail.com if you are interested in joining Shelby as a FGH ambassador! Shelby can be reached at fghmissoula@gmail.com

Fat Girls Hiking is inclusive of all abilities, and this hike is perfect for anyone who uses adaptive equipment like wheelchairs, canes, and walkers. Along the paved and plowed trail, we’ll loop around Rattlesnake Creek, stopping at two bridges to take in the views.

This is a loop route about 1 mile long. Depending on the group, we may do two loops. Negligible elevation gain, as this is a city park. Dogs are welcome, on a leash. All of the trail is paved, with half of the route taking us through the park and the other half returning along a quiet side street. Have your Yak Trax handy, as there are a couple of icy patches.

Getting there: From East Broadway, turn on to Madison Street, heading north. Continue under the interstate. Turn right onto Vine St, then left onto Monroe. Go a little ways, and you’ll find a trailhead parking lot on the left. No fee to park, but no bathrooms available, either. Disability parking is available.

***Please Note****Fat Girls Hiking's Body Positive group hikes are open to ALL genders, ALL sizes, ALL skill levels. Please choose a hike that will meet your needs/abilities. During all of our hikes, we go at the pace of the slowest hiker (usually that's ME!) No one is left behind! We love to share our lived experiences with one another on the trail and hope to create a space where ALL feel welcome! We ask that anyone who joins our group events refrain from diet talk, body shaming or weight loss talk. We don't allow sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia or any other form of bigotry.


Land Acknowledgement: This hike takes place on the ancestral territories of the Pend d‘Oreille & Ktunaxa 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.


Fat Girls Hiking group hikes are always free. However, we ask that if you are financial able to, consider making a donation to Fat Girls Hiking by purchasing a ticket to this hike. OR support the growth of FGH by donating to one of our accounts. This helps us to sustain the Fat Girls Hiking community. Funds go toward travel expenses to create new Fat Girls Hiking chapters, to purchase hiking gear & equipment for community members and so we can offer scholarships (for events that do cost money). FGH founder, Summer, is currently On The Road opening FGH chapters across North America. If you're able to donate via Go Fund Me, here's the link for Fat Girls Hiking, On The Road: https://www.gofundme.com/fat-girls-hiking-on-the-road

Pay Pal: fatgirlshiking@gmail.com or Venmo @fatgirlshiking are other ways to donate. We thank you so much for helping us sustain this community!
