There are hundreds of wonderful places to hike in the Central PA area that are perfect for day or half-day hikes. I'm 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 simply get togethers to enjoy one another's company.

We're 1,001 Day hikers
