Green Room Outside (GRO)
Backpacking Trips for Women 

Something happens when you put on a backpack and start walking down a trail. With each step, there is a dose of fresh air & widened perspective. The beautiful & fascinating things along the trail grab our attention & make us more aware. The cluttered mind recedes & moment by moment we become more immersed in the spaciousness all around us.

Designed for women, guided by women. We are inspiring, empowering, and supportive to each other. These trips are inclusive of individuals identifying as transgender, non-binary, & gender nonconforming.

CHOOSE YOUR GRO TRIP

We've curated two types of backpacking trips in Vermont's Green Mountains. We named them: Immerse & Micro. Immerse is 2 nights-3 days and includes hiking on the iconic Long Trail & Appalachian Trail up Stratton Mtn for a picnic & optional fire tower climb (incl fantastic views on a clear day). Micro is an overnight, and is perfect for the busy woman, first time backpacker, or woman who needs a quick high quality re-set. All trips have a mindfulness emphasis - maximizing every moment. We provide transportation, gear, breakfast/dinner & simple mindfulness training (& a meditation bracelet!). In addition, there is a gear review/pre-trip Q&A day to be sure you are comfortable and ready to go. We take a maximum of six participants on each trip. 

IMMERSE 

  • simple relevant readings, nature poetry and mindfulness guidance will be integrated into our hikes to maximize our ability to be present, aware & let everything else go while on the trail 

  • we will have a simple sitting meditation each morning & evening

  • breakfast & dinner will be at the edge of beautiful Stratton Pond

  • we camp in the same place both nights which allows us to leave our heavy gear at the campsite and have a light pack on Day 2

  • total miles: 17 | Day 1 = 4.5, Day 2 = 8 (with light pack), Day 3 = 4.5 

  • the immerse trips are suited for all levels, beginner backpacker to advanced

"With no prior experience, I willingly arose at 5am to follow Kimber onto rock and root littered trails in the dark, because she made it sound like an enjoyable and Zen thing to do. My faith has been rewarded 1,000 times since."
