Brooklyn--Fat Girls Hiking is coming your way!! I am searching for 1-2 ambassadors in Brooklyn to lead group hikes once a month. If you are interested, please come hike with me while I'm in town & we can chat more. More info on chapters here: https://fatgirlshiking.com/fgh-chapters/
Prospect Park is a 526-acre public park in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, and the second largest public park in Brooklyn. It's Halloween so let's wear costumes! PLEASE nothing culturally appropriating!! More info here: https://www.teenvogue.com/story/cultural-appropriation-halloween-costume-video
The Hike: 3.7 mile paved loop with 134ft elevation gain. All-trails says this hike is wheelchair friendly!
***Please Note****Fat Girls Hiking's Body Positive group hikes are open to ALL genders, ALL sizes, ALL skill levels. Please choose a hike that will meet your needs/abilities. During all of our hikes, we go at a pace that feels good for everyone. No one is left behind! New hikers, slow hikers & indoor folks are welcomed! We love to share our lived experiences with one another on the trail and hope to create a space where ALL feel welcome! We ask that anyone who joins our group events refrain from diet talk, body shaming or weight loss talk. We don't allow sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia or any other form of bigotry.
Getting There: We will meet at 645 West Drive by the Bartel-Pritchard Circle Columns. If anyone has info on parking, let me know so I can add that. Can't seem to find it online. Looks like there is transit nearby as well!
Land Acknowledgement: This hike takes place on the unceded and ancestral territories of the Canarsie & Lenape nations. Fat Girls Hiking acknowledges that this hike is on stolen land and our hikers may be guests, settlers & immigrants to this land. We recognize that outdoor recreation is rooted in colonialism and commit ourselves to undoing these dynamics while we’re on the trail.
Fat Girls Hiking group hikes are always free. However, we ask that if you are financial able to, consider making a donation to Fat Girls Hiking by purchasing a ticket to this hike. OR support the growth of FGH by donating to one of our accounts. This helps us to sustain the Fat Girls Hiking community. Funds go toward travel expenses to create new Fat Girls Hiking chapters, to purchase hiking gear & equipment for community members and so we can offer scholarships (for events that do cost money).
