Our humble history

Alli Fronzaglia started Boulder Hiker Chicks (BHC) in September 2013 as a way to explore the trail system and make new friends. Word-of-mouth hikes with neighbors soon morphed into large scale outings with women from all over the Boulder/Denver metro area.

Over a hundred local women have hiked with us since our inception. These women represent all ages, all fitness levels, and all walks of life. We find common ground, encouragement, and support through our time together on the trail. As Boulder Hiker Chicks evolves and offers more events to more women, we aim to preserve the intimacy, connection, and inclusivity that sets BHC apart from other hiking meetup groups.

BHC offers year-round, all-level hikes on both weekdays and weekends. In addition to our regular hikes, we organize seasonal epic adventures such as the Winter Trifecta, the 5-Peak Traverse, and field trips to Indian Peaks and Rocky Mountain National Park.

Now and always, we remain true to our original mission: Connecting wild & wonderful women through fun, noncompetitive, and safe hiking experiences in the Boulder and beyond.
