Ever head out for a winter adventure assuming you will warm up after a mile of effort, but never do? Or you layer up according to the forecast but halfway through your adventure the weather turns and you find yourself racing home for warmth and shelter?
Well, it’s that time of year when the temps turn frigid, and the weather becomes relentless. Shorts and capris are no match in combating winter weather, but thankfully full length tights are able to do the trick so we can continue adventuring all year long.
Materials matter, especially when using them for performance purposes. Functionality is king, as it determines your comfort, security, and overall enjoyment while recreating. Wool is considered one of the best performance materials on the market, as its functionality second to none. Let’s go through what makes wool a go-to material for your outdoor adventures.
The reason why a person may join a community is unique to that individual, but a commonality of any group is its ability for interaction and communication between members. Human connection is powerful, and can be life changing. As social creatures, contact and relationships are paramount to our existence, and happiness.

Years of speaking with women through the Trail Sisters community has provided copious amounts of insight on the extra duties moms inherit (whether consciously or not), especially during child-rearing years. This additional work results in less “me time,” with (generally) exercise as one of the first items to be cut from one’s daily schedule.
It comes with great pleasure and excitement to announce Trail Sisters is partnering with the performance footwear and apparel brand HOKA ONE ONE®! Trail Sisters and HOKA have a shared belief in the importance of education and empowerment, and believe running and the outdoors can be a vehicle for both.
In partnership with The North Face, the Trail Sisters Adventure Grant will award six women with a $500 check and a sweet gear kit to pursue their dream adventure. Both TNF and TS share a love for adventure as well as a passion to grow participation and opportunity in outdoor sports.
In honor of Earth Month, we wanted to do some special, putting the pressure on more trail clean-up and trail maintenance. Many organizations and trail enthusiasts look after the Earth with daily trail care, but the reality is, most of us are only able to commit a certain amount of time and energy.
In celebration of Earth Month, Trail Sisters and Altra Running are excited to launch our new conservation and cleanup project, 2,021 Hours for the Planet. The goal of this project is to hit (hopefully surpass) 2,021 hours of collective trail clean-up and maintenance work from the community.
Part of the TS mission is to grow womxn’s participation and opportunity. Seeing how mothers especially, may have more trouble participating or taking advantage of an opportunity, well we wanted to do something about it.
I’m excited to announce and celebrate 18 extraordinary women who make up our Ask the Trail Sisters panel of experts. These kick-butt women will be answering
Trust me, I want to be – like a pony wants to be a horse, like a shrub wants to be a tree – but like the pony and the shrub, inevitably I fall short. Don’t get me wrong, there are women that I love, that I will cheer for until I no longer have a voice. There are women I don’t know that I will do the same. But there are moments, many moments when I cannot cheer for the successes of other women, and it makes me feel horrible.
“You’ve got to see it to believe it.” A common saying, or maybe even a cliché, but it’s true. Observing a situation, action or event provides the proof that it’s possible. Sure, there are some who don’t need an experience to believe in what can be, but for others, having that example is what provides comprehension in what they too, can do.
Every time I start typing this article I get hung up with the intro, I want to focus on addressing the entry barriers preventing women from exploring the outdoors, but I can’t seem to get there unless I include issues with inequality, and the history of our society.
It’s just about Trail Sisters three year anniversary, and with much time listening and learning, we’ve finally decided on what we believe is the best representation for our community…meet Moxie the Mountain Lion.
