Event Snapshot: The sun rises at 6:45am in September and we plan to catch it on the mountaintops. Join us for a hike up Mount Pilchuck as summer transitions into fall in the PNW. We will be hiking 2,300 feet up the mountain on a 2.7 hike (one way) for panoramic views from a restored fire lookout built in 1921. At the top, we will watch the sun rise with views of Mount Baker, Mount Rainier, and the Olympics at 5,300 feet in the air. Fire up your calves and get ready to climb!

Wilderwomen was born out of two women with the same dream; build a community of women who empower one another outdoors. Whether you’re seeking yoga, a get away, a tribe, an outdoor adventure, or just some time in nature, Wilderwomen has it all. We host meet-ups and outdoor retreats in the picturesque PNW paradise that include daily yoga, gourmet meals, outdoor adventures, hot spring soaks, glamping and more! We are building a community of women (and men, and partners, and those who don’t opt to define themselves by a gender) who feel confident in their skin and in their technical outdoor abilities, a tribe of humans who deeply care about the environment and each other, and a collection of outdoor enthusiasts and weekend warriors who are excited to get after it in the outdoors.
