Hi @Ithaca - Thanks for reaching out! We love hearing about your love for the outdoors. What area do you live in? If you are near other community members, we can tag them and see if they have any local suggestions for finding hiking partners.

Right now we are offering some of our Local Experiences programs with enhanced health and safety precautions. You might be interested in our women's classes, tours, and events that are offered for a wide variety of activities. They are a great way to meet other women who are passionate about getting outside. 

This community is also a great place to be a newbie. Feel free to ask any questions you have about hiking, gear, or more!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
