If you have a Facebook account, be sure to "like" our Facebook page! First, please tell us where you live? (do not post specific addresses! Give us a general idea, as it helps for potential carpool purposes!

I live in Raleigh next to the East side of Umstead Park. (near Glenwood Ave. (70W) & Ebenezer Church Rd)

What type of THOG events are you interested in participating in? (ie hiking, backpacking, camping, cycling, paddling, skiing, snowshoeing, nature photography, geocaching, etc)?

I enjoy hiking, off-road biking, tent & RV camping. I'm interested in trying backpacking and kayaking this year.

Here's your chance to show off! Where are your favorite places to explore? (you don't have to divulge all your secret places!)

I've hiked many of our national parks, including; Yellowstone, Glacier, Olympic, North Cascades, Mt. Rainier, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce, Canyonlands, Arches & Great Smoky Mountains. Locally, Umstead SP and Shelley Lake. I'm looking forward to more local hikes with this group.

What is your hiking level? What are your expectations from joining THOG? What do you hope to gain from THOG membership?

I've been hiking most of my adult life. I get out for short hikes in Umstead a few time a month, but haven't done any long strenuous hikes in the past year. I typically average 3 MPH. This includes stops for taking photos.

Hi everyone, I'm Tom an avid hiker and camper. I was born in Buffalo, NY but lived in Raleigh most of my life. Hiking National Parks have been my very best times. I'm looking forward our meeting and doing some hiking.

What Tom B is saying about this Meetup Group

Triangle Hiking and Outdoors Group is a great organization for helping local hikers experience local hikes with friendly, enthusiastic hikers. Members are willing to share their knowledge making the group hikes much more fun than exploring on your own.
