First published in 1982, A Woman's Journey recounts an A.T. trek in words and pictures. The book, still in print, continues to inspire hikers. Since penning her first book, Cindy Ross has gone on to write about her journeys on the Pacific Crest Trail, the Continental Divide Trail (with children!) and other wild spots around the world.
We are pleased to announce that author/speaker/hiker extraordinaire Cindy Ross will be joining us at the 2020 Round Hill Appalachian Trail Festival. On Saturday, Cindy will talk about "Life-long Learning on the Trail," sharing her experiences hiking, cycling and paddling long-distance trails over the past four decades. On Sunday, Cindy will lead a workshop, "Bringing Back the Experience," where participants will join Cindy for "a little journal writing, photography and sketching in the field."
Cindy's seventh book, The World Is Our Classroom: How One Family Used Nature and Travel to Shape an Extraordinary Education, came out in 2018. She is at work on her next book, Walking Towards Peace: The Healing Journeys of 20+ Veterans, based on her nonprofit's work to help veterans recover from the trauma of war by taking them out into nature.
Round Hill AT: Join us in bringing together local friends and family to get outside. Let’s discover our amazing backyards — from national treasures like the Appalachian Trail to new local and regional parks.
