About this Event


A scenic hike is a great way to unwind and unplug. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced hiker, this is the perfect trail to discover the serenity of the Greenway.

The trail we’ll blaze will be an easy 3-mile loop with small, crushed gravel terrain and minimal inclines/elevation changes. We'll introduce you to the ten essentials of hiking travel and the principles of Leave No Trace. All skill sets are welcome; however, children are not permitted on this hike for safety reasons.

This is a great opportunity to:

  • Connect with other doulas, birth workers, and birth advocates in a casual setting
  • Enjoy the beauty of nature and get some exercise
  • De-stress and recharge

The McAlpine Creek Loop is a beautiful 3-mile trail perfect for hikers of all experience levels. The trail winds along McAlpine Creek and offers plenty of shade and scenic views.

Space is limited, so register today!

We look forward to hiking with you!
