Here are 3 women-only hiking groups to check out in San Antonio – mySA

Hiking alone is peaceful and needed sometimes. However, in this heat, a buddy is needed for safety reasons. Now, if you’re like my friends and refuse to trek in the summer, there are three women-only groups I’ve hiked with before and absolutely enjoyed. Below are my suggestions:

The first walk had only four girls, but the second had almost 50. The third had over 300 women, most ages ranging from the early 20s to late 30s. 

Walk No. 8 will be at 7 p.m. on Monday, July 18 at the Tobin Park Trailhead.
