About this Event
Meet up with local moms to hike kid-friendly trails across the East Valley this winter season!
East Valley Moms coordiantes the meetup as an opportunity to hike with other families, meet new friends and enjoy the beautiful wether Arizona winters offer.
Each hiking meet-up is a casual group hike intended for moms with babies/tots in hiking backpacks or young kids who are eagar to hike on their own.
You know your family's abilities best, so we encourage you to look at each trail for each meet up to decide what's best for your family. (We like AllTrails.com for reviews and tips!).
Beginner, intermediate and experienced hikers are all welcome--these are kid-friendly, easy hikes intended to encourage and support moms of young kids to begin hiking.
Research the trail before you head out so you know what to expect.
Bring plenty of water! Amazon has some options for kid-sized Camelbak style hydration packs. If your kid is old enough to wear a backpack and hike, this takes a load off you.
Snacks. Snacks. Snacks…they can carry their own in their fancy new hydration pack! Make sure to keep track of the wrappers so you don’t litter!
Hold hands if the trails seem rough and keep them within an arms reach on steeper trails.
Take lots of breaks. They’re kids and this is a new skill for them. The first couple times be prepared to turn back before the end of the trail and don’t take it too seriously if you do. It’s supposed to be fun and will get easier the more you go!
