Like many areas of society, hiking culture has not always been inclusive of diverse groups of people. Historically, hiking and outdoor recreation have been predominantly associated with white, able-bodied, and male individuals.
However, in recent years, there has been a growing awareness and effort to promote inclusivity and diversity within hiking culture.
This has involved challenging stereotypes, creating safe and welcoming spaces for underrepresented groups, and recognizing the unique perspectives that different individuals bring to the outdoors.
In this context, inclusivity and diversity are becoming increasingly important aspects of hiking culture, promoting greater equity, accessibility, and enjoyment for all who seek to explore the natural world.
Hiking is a wonderful activity that allows people to connect with nature and create happy memories.
While acknowledging that we are all works in progress, this website does its best to provide a positive space for discussion and promotion of inclusivity and diversity as a crucial part of improving our great outdoors.
