Womens Forest Trail

I changed it up this past weekend and went on a leisurely hike of the Womens Forest Trail in Divide, Colorado. It’s a 5.1 loop with an elevation gain of 324ft. Just a wonderful hike to reconnect with nature.

When I got home I tried to lookup this women’s club and couldn’t find anything on the web. I put out a post on a local Facebook group and Bonnie Fischel did find this Link on the history of the group, but no mention on the specifics of the creation of this area/trail. While reading about the history, I discovered CFCW was established in 1895. I couldn’t agree more with this last paragraph from the link:

The position of women in society has drastically changed since the beginning of the CFWC. Women’s clubs throughout history have served to provide a place for women to establish common goals and reinforce common values. Together they have facilitated the advancement of women in society and continue to preserve that legacy.”

Here in the United States and a few other countries, the month of March is designated Women’s History Month. It highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. In honor of this not only do I want to thank these forward thinking women for allowing future generations to enjoy this spectacular area, but I also have these two women that I want to celebrate as strong role models in my history and society. The spread of love and compassion is just priceless.. You can read about them from my prior blog posts:

What women would you highlight?
