Juicy Quote:
"My first Trail Mavens adventure was a combination of both learning about the outdoors and being inspired by a group of women, many of whom I did not know prior to the trip. Women bond with nature in a particular way that supersedes anything petty or competitive and instead fosters acceptance and introspection – that’s what I experienced with Trail Mavens. As a classroom teacher whose greatest passion is learning and sharing any of my applicable acquired knowledge with others, I knew I wanted to be a co-leader as soon as Sasha sent out the e-mail and I am so excited for the opportunity."

Abby will be co-leading our upcoming Yosemite adventure. Interested in co-leading a Trail Mavens trip? Learn more here.
