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

We are the most experienced, 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 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 Challenge?

The 52 Peak Challenge 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.
