Whether you are an experienced backpacker or not, you will always learn something new with Moe Mountains. Lauren (our guide and owner of Moe Mountains) was so knowledgeable, experienced, kind, and encouraging, anyone who goes on a trip is in good hands. I got to meet some incredible women from all ages and all parts of the United States. They became fast friends and are a group of people I will never forget. If you are debating a backpacking trip with Moe mountains, you just have to go for it, I promise you won’t regret it!

Amazing guided hiking experience for women! Provided education in the months leading to my trip, fully outfitted me with gear, and lots of real time coaching before and during the trip. Can't wait to go back.

What an experience. Our group of 7 strangers became a team & we all had such a fabulous time. Lauren prepared us perfectly. She sends videos & you feel like she’s your friend before you even meet her. I loved that any time I would text a question (which was rare bc she keeps you so informed) she would respond with a voice text. She does a lot of homework & picks amazing trails & camp spots. It was such a positive experience & I am so grateful I got to be a part of it.

Moe Mountains Scholarship Fund

We are dedicated to ensuring that every woman has the opportunity to experience the transformative benefits of a Moe Mountains trip.

However, we understand that there are some who may be unable to afford such an experience, regardless of their desire.

That's why we've established the Moe Mountains scholarship fund.

Each season, we'll be offering a trip spot to a woman who is in dire need of rejuvenating time amidst the mountains.

Our aim is to grant this opportunity to a woman who is experiencing hardship, grief, loneliness, or simply needs a respite to recover from life's challenges.

Could you help us make that happen?

About Us

Hello friend! My name is Lauren, and I am the founding owner of Moe Mountains. Our mission is to take women into nature and open the doors for them to be immersed in a supportive & new community, empowering challenges, & healing adventures that they otherwise may not ever have the opportunity to experience.

Nature has a special place in my story, as it is what helped me heal after my mom unexpectedly died in an accident 14 years ago. My time spent in the forest was so healthy & impactful to me. I was able to process, grieve, wrestle with emotions, struggle, build confidence and hope in the mountains. All of these things brought about health and I will forever be grateful for God’s creation that supports us in numerous ways, some we don’t even recognize yet.

My hope with starting Moe Mountains is that it will be a platform for enabling me to turn around and help the women in my circles experience a transformation they are needing to flourish in their lives.

I want the woman who is unsure if she can do hard things to feel that thrill and empowerment of reaching the summit. I want the woman who is hurting & barely holding it together to be able to sit beside a river and listen to the calming water, and let herself cry & process the heavy emotions she has been carrying. I want the woman who is lonely to have her heart encouraged and uplifted with new friends & be able to experience adventures that normal daily life cannot offer (since when do we get to throw our food up into a tree overnight or share a poop shovel or smell to high heavens on the ride home during “normal life”)?

I want the woman who is overworked and frazzled to have the opportunity to change her pace in a healthy way, unplug and restore her soul.

The mountains have done all this for me & I am thrilled to have the honor of leading women to that same opportunity.
