Pride Hike & Celebration

Date: June 18 - Saturday
Time: 9am-Noon CST

What the heck is a Pride Hike?

Well, at Back to Wild, we say Celebrate Pride in whatever way is right for you, hon.’ Sometimes being loud, large, and extra is on the menu, and sometimes it’s not. If the latter lights up your rainbow, come out for a Pride Hike during June.

If you’re flying solo, prepare for Mama Carlyn to show you some love. (Oh, who are we kidding… she is going to mother all y’all.) She’ll even serve you a big ol’ mama hug if you ask. A proper one of those has been known to cure everything. 

If you’re part of a party, prepare for anything. Our Pride Hikes have seen three-part harmony sing-alongs, impersonations, dance-hiking, and even a daily bawl. You want to dress colorfully or accessorize fabulously? Be our guest. Just remember that sturdy shoes are non-negotiable. Safety first.

Also, every-Ally-body is welcome to celebrate Pride with us, including your kids, kids with Pride, parents, siblings, and friends. Come on and cherish your perfect self while you werk this hike.

Feel free to bring your lunch for an after hike picnic.

 You Be You. Stay Wild.
