We are a diverse group of  easy going people who enjoy the great outdoors.    Our outings  range from urban walks to country rambles to mountain hikes. We hike on Saturdays, Sundays, an occasional Tuesday and sometimes at night.  Since we either begin our hikes at the starting place or car pool to  the trail head, there is no need to register in advance.  No dogs are allowed on the hikes. But all people who enjoy hiking in the company of others, are welcome.


For a complete listing of Center Hiking Club hikes see our club schedule which is on line. www.centerhikingclub.org/schedule.html
