On a recent hike, one of our participants had her car broken into.
It happened in a parking lot in Harriman State Park on Route 6.
However, break-ins have happened to AFW participants before, in
other areas, and in other parks.
As I understand it, in this case, nothing was taken. However, I assume it was because there was nothing to take.
That’s the key — do not leave anything in your car of value or that you’d be unhappy if disappeared.
Let’s be careful out there.

Adventures for Women
Sharing outdoor adventures and friendship for over 30 years.
Adventures For Women
Adventures For Women (AFW), founded by Betsy Thomason, is a non-profit organization. AFW is one of the few women only outdoor clubs in the U.S.
We bring women, 18 years or older, of all abilities together...
to share adventures and camaraderie
to learn new skills and develop confidence
to gain new insights and experiences
We are an eclectic organization that loves to explore and is equally at home in the woods, the suburbs, or the city. We pride ourselves on providing ample opportunities for women to empower, improve and define themselves. We teach women to be comfortable in the woods, to protect the environment, and to push themselves to new levels. Along the way, our members make friends and find others to support and encourage them as they flourish. We are women who love having fun outdoors.
