Celebrating our 25th Season of Wilderness Heals! WH is a pledge hike that builds and engages a community of supporters to raise money for the Elizabeth Stone House families and individuals.
This three-day, all-female hike takes place in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. There are multiple route options which offer a range of trails accessible to individuals with varying levels of experience including a backcountry camping option. Hikers spend three days hiking and two nights at Appalachian Mountain Club huts, which provide beds, blankets, dinner and breakfast. The backcountry camping option affords hikers the opportunity to experience the wilderness in a supportive environment. Participants on this leg pitch tents and cook their own food. Round-trip transportation between Boston and the trailheads is provided.
In addition to the 3-day hike, hikers are required to participate in one training hike which are offered every weekend in June, attend a Mandatory Safety & Logistics meeting on July 8th the week before the 3-day hike, and raise a minimum of $1,500 by mid-September.
Any woman who wants to meet the physical, emotional, and fundraising challenges of the hike is welcome to participate! This includes seasoned hikers and new hikers, outdoor enthusiasts and newbies to nature, survivors of domestic violence or trauma and their supporters, and anyone seeking the opportunity to embark on an adventure and camaraderie while raising money for an amazing cause!
