DNK Presents, Wild Women's Hike

Wild Women’s Hike

Join us for our sweetheart Galentine’s Wild Women’s Hike! We will meet at the entrance of the Abe Martin Lodge in Brown County State Park in Nashville, Indiana. We will be pairing this hike with the WinterBliss Wellness Retreat taking place at the Abe Martin Lodge, any one attending the retreat can join in the hike as part of the schedule. Those not attending the retreat can also join – it’s open to all!
We will hike the Trail 2 loop, we will get on Trail 3 for a bit since Trail 2 is partly under construction. This will be about 3 miles with about 300 ft. of elevation gain and loss. The trail is mostly single track and the terrain is rugged.
Please dress for the weather, wear layers, wear hiking boots or a sturdy shoe, bring a pack with water, snacks, and whatever else you might need.
*This hike is kid friendly but there is over 350 ft. of elevation gain and loss, the trail is mostly single track with uneven terrain. If your child is used to that kind of difficulty and length then we would love to have them along.
*For this hike we ask that you leave your furry friends at home, look for a special guided hike in 2020 that you can bring your pup to!
*We focus most of our events for women only to empower more women to feel more confident in the outdoors and to create a more equal playing field for women recreating! We know to move to needle for women we need include men and those who are gender fluid in the conversation. Women and allies are welcome and invited đŸ˜đŸ„Ÿ

Wild Women’s Hike

Join us for our March hike at Browning Mountain in Nashville, IN! Browning Mountain also known as Indiana’s Stonehenge is one of our most mysterious spots in the state. Make sure to dress for the weather, the terrain is steep in some places and the trail is rugged. We will take our time as a group to explore this beautiful trail!

Meeting location:

Bird’s Nest Cafe

36 Franklin St. Nashville, IN 47448

We will car pool over from here to the trail head because there is very little parking where we will enter the trail. The trail at first is a very steep uphill to the site of the mysterious sandstone boulders said to be from Native Americans ceremonies in the area. After the hike we plan to have lunch at The Bird’s Nest Cafe, everyone is welcome to join us!

DNK Presents organizes and guides empowering adventure experiences for individuals, groups and businesses. We specialize in women’s specific events that support women, girls and people in the LGBTQ community to live adventurously. We started doing free monthly wild women’s hikes to get more women and girls outside feeling more comfortable and confident in the outdoors. We believe that inclusivity is an asset and we know that in order to move the needle for women we need the support of our male allies, and those who are gender neutral or gender fluid to support this cause. We invite people of all ages, we’ve had mother’s wrap their children on themselves before and folks well into their 80s hike with us. We welcome people of all colors and cultural backgrounds! If you believe in getting more women and girls outdoors and empowering them through nature, then you are welcome to participate in these events with us!
