Happy Trails Hikes are about movement, connection, and getting out on to the trails in or around Winnipeg during the week. This series of hikes, happening select Tuesday evenings until the beginning of December, is a series open to all levels designed to connect with others. Some hikes will have a theme and others are just an opportunity to get active outdoors while connecting with like-minded women from the Backcountry Women community.
