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, would you like to feel more comfortable walking in the woods? Join Lucy Meigs, naturalist and Women of the Woods founder, for a 2-mile hike that will focus in part on what you can do and learn to be safer and feel more secure on trails in the woods. We will visit both the big and little falls for which this beautiful park was named. In addition to walking, we will take the time to admire the beauty around us, learn a bit about the flora and fauna and experience some quiet time in nature. Registration is required.

As a 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
