Hiking clubs are a great way to meet people who love to hike, find new hiking buddies, stay fit and active, and learn from more experienced hikers.

There are many types of hiking clubs — some are laid back and may do relaxing short hikes, some are more aggressive, some are for younger hikers, and some are geared more towards older hikers — browse the list and find one that seems right for you.

Trailsites.com has no affiliation with any of the clubs listed, and the links are provided as a resource only.
