About Trailblazers

Our instructors are women of color with in-depth wilderness training and teaching experience, a shared passion for the outdoors, and for this growing program! Through intentional planning and leadership, the Trailblazers experience invites the collective intelligence and histories of our constituents to create outings that bridge our divides and elevate our sense of wonder, agency, and belonging in nature.

Trailblazers is an affinity space within Women’s Wilderness created by and for those who identify as women of color. At Women’s Wilderness, we recognize the importance and value of creating safe, self-directed spaces as an option for our participants who seek it, and it’s the goal of the Trailblazers team to address that need by fostering community, joy, and connection within our diverse identities as we explore the outdoors together.
