Event description

Description

The Outdoor Journal Tour brings women together in an effort to create community around Mindfulness, Self-care and the Great Outdoors.

Join us for our REI #sponsored women's "Hike, Journal, Meditate" event at one of our faviorte State Parks in the Atlanta are, Sweetwater Creek State Park!

We will be hiking either the yellow trail or a combo of the red/white trail, both are wonderfully scenic and approximately 3 miles long. This will be an easy to moderate hike, with minimal elevation gain a little bit of rock scrambling. We welcome all fitness levels to join us; the goal is to enjoy the journey, we are never in a race and we will take as many breaks as needed.

We will plan to meet in front of the Visitors Center promptly at 10:30am. We suggest using this GPS location for directions (just click the link).


Please be punctual, and carpool as much as possible, as parking fills up quickly and of course we want to be respectful of everyone’s time. Visit our Facebook event page if you are interested in starting or joining a carpool.

During our adventure we will facilitate mindfulness components such guided meditation, journaling and discussion prompts and other exercises from our guided journal, The Journal of Mindful Movement. Feel free to purchase a copy ahead of time on our website or at the trailhead on the day of. Please come with an open mind and heart. We truly believe that connecting self-reflection with outdoor adventures creates magical moments and who doesn’t want more of those in our lives?!

We will provide trail snacks, water and great company! Please bring a reusable water bottle to fill up at the trailhead. Feel free to bring any additional food or beverages that you desire.
