                                     This is the hiking group that changes people's lives!

We are the only hiking group that averages two hikes per day since we started (Jan 2011).   

We are the most experienced (founders of over 60 routes), knowledgeable (authors of 5 hiking guidebooks- # 1 hiking website), and ambitious (peaks no other hiking club does)  hiking group in Las Vegas.
                               We are selective on who can join us, because safety is our #1 priority.

                    ******** You will be able to choose from 60 and 90 hikes a month! ************

    Do You want to hike to the best peaks (peaks no other hiking groups offer)?

    Do You want to gain confidence and conquer your fears?

    Do You want to make lots of friends ?

You MUST join with your first and last name. You will NOT be approved to join this group if you don't join with a first and last name.

What is the 52 Peak Club?

The 52 Peak Club is a club within this Meetup group that motivates you to hike/scramble to the best 52 peaks around Las Vegas. Each time you complete a hike to a peak, you earn a playing card. The goal is to earn all 52 playing cards. If you want to be a better hiker, join the 52 Peak Club.
