The group will empower women to enjoy the outdoors at dusk as we explore the trail on 94-acres of land protected by Catawba Lands Conservancy as the sun goes down.  The hike will include some easy inclines on a natural surface trail with some roots and rocks along the way. It will cover approximately 4 miles and last 2.5-3 hours.
