REI & Hike It Baby: Winter Hiking With Kids

Our local favorite group, Hike It Baby and our new favorite outdoor recreational store, REI are teaming up and offering one awesome event!


Do you love hiking? And have kids? But, have not been able to hike much since your kids came along? Don’t worry! You can still hike with your kiddos, by wearing them!


This Saturday, December 12th head on over to REI in West Des Moines. You will learn how to properly outfit yourself and your children for fun hikes in Central Iowa. Here are a few things that will be covered:

  1. How to select the proper carrier for you and your child.
  2. What trails are accessible and kid-friendly in Central Iowa.
  3. Learn how you can include your children in the prepping process such as picking out food, picking out a non-electric toy to bring along and more!

The presentation will start at 11 am and registration is FREE at

After you learn how to prepare you and your children for a hike, join Hike It Baby on Sunday, December 13th for a hike! The hike will take place at 10 am at Browns Woods. Make sure you bring water and snacks!
