Event Description: 

Women of the Woods or WoW has monthly gatherings for women to enable them to connect with the natural world. Most gatherings are hikes in the woods of central Connecticut. In addition to hiking we take the time to admire the beauty around us, experience some quiet time in nature, and enjoy each others company.

Women, bring your mother or daughter (or someone like a mother or daughter to you) and join us for this Women of the Woods hike at Wadsworth Mansion, Middletown. Explore the beautiful woods and grounds of Wadsworth Mansion. Walk about 1 to 2 miles on trails to look for signs of spring, visit the vernal pool, and perhaps even find a letterbox with a hand carved stamp. This hike is for all women and girls capable of walking 2 miles on a dirt trail with some hills.

As program of the Connecticut Forest & Park Association, CFPA Rambles are intended to bring people, fun, and the outdoors together. Led by trained CFPA Ramble Guides, these FREE, engaging outings are offered on trails around the state every month throughout the year. Each CFPA Ramble is designed to show the people of Connecticut how easy and enjoyable a ramble can be and to feature the many different outdoor opportunities our state has to offer.

  1. Be ready to begin the Ramble at the scheduled start time;
  2. Bring water, snack, and your excitement;
  3. Leave pets at home (unless otherwise noted); and
