Please include a photo of yourself that is identifiable when you request membership.  We no longer approve members without a photo. Also, if you have a common name, please make sure you add your last  name or some other identification that makes you unique!  This helps avoid confusion in the group!

In order to stay in the group, you must participate in at least one event per year. 

There are hundreds of wonderful places to hike in the Central PA area that are perfect for day or half-day hikes. We are looking for people who enjoy heading out for the day and exploring those places and may not have time or the gear for overnight backpacking. We offer a variety of hikes from 4 miles up to 20+ and have also offered some night hiking!  I'm open to suggestions and look forward to hearing about the great places you've hiked and want to share with the group.

Not all meetups will be a hike. We offer kayaking, camping, movies, and just simple get togethers to enjoy one another's company.

We're 872 Day hikers

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
