The Trail Dames Podcast is just for you.


Mar 20, 2018

Welcome to the new Trail Dames Podcast. The aim of the podcast is to inspire women to get out into nature and to realize that there are many like-minded, suportive women just like them.

I'm Anna Huthmaker, the founder of Trail Dames. In 2003, I hiked over 700 miles on the Appalachian Trail and discovered that there weren't too many people like me out there. The adventure was pivotal to my life and when I returned home, I set out to form a welcoming, supportive club of like-minded women. Through this forum, I've been lucky enough to meet and become friends with a diverse group of ladies, many of whom I will be interviewing for the show.

This week, my guest is Carla Robertson, an inspirational woman and life coach. Carla is an Appalachian Trail thru-hiker who discovered a talent for inspiring people through that rich experience.  

You can connect with Carla through Facebook and Instagram, at livingwildandprecious. You can also visit her two websites,, which is her life coaching site, and, which is a site all about thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail.

Please subscribe to the show so that when Episode #2 is released, it will appear on your phone immediately. And please, if you have suggestions for the show, or if you simply want to write and tell me what you think of the show, email me directly at
