***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 Osage 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.
