Hike 365 is an outdoor + wellness community for girls based out of Canmore in the Canadian Rockies!
We are a unique community for girls in Alberta that has been created to fill a niche in our generation through social media use paired with getting out on the trails together. We are young professionals who see the need to inspire the younger generation of girls to put down their phones, break out of their comfort zone and explore Alberta safely! Bringing in consistent engagement pre-hike, post hike + dreaming of hiking through member involvement on social media is a fantastic tool we use to build our community!
We realized quickly that this “girls only” concept was a good choice: our first event in May of 2014 after a rather short promotion of Hike365 for a couple of months brought a registration list of over 20 girls in a matter of two days!
Our goal is to create a community both in our home province of Alberta, and online for girls who want to start something new by hiking! We look forward to sharing our experiences outdoors with all of you!
Hike 365 was founded by professional photographer A.V Wakefield of Canmore!
As an avid hiker AV didn’t have a lot of girl friends to explore the outdoors with, but was often asked on social media where she hiked + asked by girls she didn’t even know if she offered hiking workshops. Seeing the need from her peers for a community of all girls that get on the trail together she is working towards fulfilling it with Hike365!
