Founded in 1968, Greenville Natural History Association (GNHA) is a non-profit volunteer-run hiking club which welcomes newcomers to join us on the trails. You will enjoy the best that nature can "serve up" as the trails will take you through land protected by our state parks, nature preserves, DNR, Naturaland Trust, Upstate Forever and other organizations. We specialize in hikes that challenge all skill levels and fullfills the various interests of our hikers. Our membership includes families, married couples and singles of all ages. We are a "leave no trace" group that teaches conservation and respect for our forests, mountains, and wet lands.
Our club has approximately 400 members. We have decided to use this on-line platform as a means to bring our hiking activities to the attention of the Meetup world.
Please view our "Calendar" to see a detailed description of the hikes that are currently scheduled. Click on the "Pages" tab for a complete explanation of our club procedures and "Hike Rating System." This is a guide to help you determine which hikes might be suitable for you. First time hikers are encouraged to call the hike leader.
We welcome you to join GNHA Hiking Club as a temporary “Guest Hiker” - without charge for a two month trial. Annual Dues are $5.00 per household. Please refer to the PAGES section for dues payment information or go to greenvillehiking.com for paying online with Paypal/Credit Cards.
Our club plans and publishes Saturday and Sunday hikes year around. Our club offers Wednesday hikes too! These hikes are not published. Rather, the Hike Coordinators develop these hikes only days in advance. To learn more about Wednesday hiking opportunities and how to get on the distribution list, please contact Lance Renault or Jerry Miller.
