Terms of Use

General Disclosures:

Trees and Tents is a blog and community for women who love hiking, backpacking, and spending time outdoors. This intentionally created space is a welcoming and supportive environment for all women, regardless of experience level, shape, size, ethnicity, race, or other criteria that may limit or divide communities. We believe that all women should have the resources and support to enjoy the outdoors confidently, competently, and on their own terms.

While we encourage our community members to embark on adventures and experience the outdoors, you are solely responsible for your own safety on the trail. Hiking, backpacking, and other outdoor pursuits can be dangerous and we are not responsible for your actions or their outcomes on the trail. The outdoors is a wild, dangerous, and unpredictable place. While we make every effort to provide you with information to support your outdoor adventures, you understand that the location and safety of trails and wilderness areas change constantly. You are solely responsible for your own safety, and it is up to you to ensure that you have the necessary skills, fitness, and capabilities to venture into the outdoors and independently assess all the potential risks and dangers.
