Event Details

Are you new to hiking? Do you like going in groups? This is a special WOMEN’S ONLY hike, guided, and paced so we can “stop and smell the mesquite.” We’ll be hiking approximately 4 miles in length with a fair amount of elevation gain over rocky, rugged terrain. We will go slowly, savoring the day, and sharing hiking tips along the way.

Who is Invited: Open to women ages 13 and over; minors must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. No pets, please.

Registration, Fees, Day Pass & Cancellation: Registration is required for this hike and is limited to the first 15 women that register. Sorry, no group registrations.

Registration opens on Saturday, two weeks prior to the event, and closes at noon, the Thursday before the event. Though the hike is free, entrance fees to the Natural Area apply.

To save time at the Fee Booth and ensure entrance on crowded days, please pre-purchase and PRINT OUT a Day Pass. SPECIAL NOTE: Reserving a Day Pass is NOT the same as making a program reservation.

This outing is subject to cancellation. Check trail conditions by going to the GCSNA twitter feed or the Government Canyon State Natural Area Facebook page.

When & Where to Meet: Arrive no later than 8:45 AM. Meet in Parking Lot C.

Plan to arrive early as the Natural Area can be very busy. The Natural Area front gates open at 7:00 AM; plan to be in Parking Lot C ready to go no later than 8:45 AM. The hike starts promptly at 9:00 AM.

What to Wear & Bring: Dress for hiking outdoors; sunscreen and a hat are recommended. Wear sturdy footwear appropriate for rough trails; bring one (1) liter of water PER PERSON and a snack if you like.

Details: Participants should be able to hike 4.0 miles over rocky, rugged terrain with a fair amount of elevation gain.
