All people deserve to be safe when walking/running/hiking/biking on public trails. Women are most vulnerable, and most in need of safety, as 84 percent of women have been harassed while running. This harassment ranges from catcalls and being followed to violent physical and/or sexual assault, and in worst cases, death. (Runner's World 2019)
We provide safety by placing emergency posts — each equipped with a distress button and surveillance camera — every quarter mile along public trails.
A nonprofit founded to protect you and every person on the trail, providing safety, so you can walk and run and hike for FUN and NOT in fear. To drastically reduce the statistics of attacks on those walking, running, hiking, even biking, every year. Even one attack is one too many.
We're a nonprofit that helps make public trails a place of safety and fun and peace of mind, which is why we're called SAFE+Happy Trails! Contact us for more info or volunteer opportunities and fundraising events!
