About Millie’s Adventure

Millie, one of our New Adventurer Ambassadors, is embarking on a 218-mile thru-hike of the Ozark Highlands Trail this September! Millie is all about building communities of strong women and marginalized groups in the outdoors, especially right at home. Showing the world her beautiful home state of Arkansas was important to Millie, so she intends to take us all along for her journey by sharing the many joys of being on a trail in her own backyard. We can’t wait to see the backwoods of Arkansas!
