[[caption-width-right:350:Girls climb trees]]

This {{Tomboy}}'s boyishness makes her stand out. She'll be found spending time outside where she can [[TreehouseOfFun climb trees]] and play in the dirt, with the possibility of the natural consequences, as opposed to BeautyIsNeverTarnished, because she's one of those girls who'd look cute all scuffed up.

She loves to go exploring, especially when it comes to heights, and often has [[MrImagination imagination that can take her anywhere]]. There's a good chance that she can get a [[MasculineGirlFeminineBoy less adventurous boy]] to join her, or maybe a [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl feminine girl]]. She's a natural kind of person, but in a dirtier way than a GranolaGirl. If her rural activities take her a little further from home, she's one of the FreeRangeChildren.

Might likely overlap with ShortTank or AcademicAthlete. May also overlap with NatureLover, if she actually likes it rather than regards it just as place for exercise. She might be a TomboyPrincess. Related to OneOfTheBoys who is a girl who prefers to socialize with male characters. Compare PassionateSportsGirl. Contrast GamerChick, a {{Tomboy}} who stays inside, playing video games.

* WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer embarks on a trip in every episode, where she uses her map to travel anywhere from through the jungle to over a mountain.
