About The Founder

I’m Carla (trail name Zipper) and I hiked the whole Appalachian trail in 2009, almost entirely by myself. It was such an incredible journey! Now that I’ve successfully completed my hike, I’ve created the resource I wish I had when I was planning my first AT adventure.

WWB is a safe environment — no question is too stupid! It’s not intimidating, it’s women only and you don’t have to be a “Springer to Katahdin all at one time” gal to benefit from it. The collective cheerleading and positive attitudes make this a “can do” endeavor.
