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


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.

Testimonials about the 52 Peak Club

Note: You do not have to be part of the 52 Peak Club to go on the hikes.

Branch Whitney is the author of Hiking Las Vegas (plus four other hiking books), the number one hiking guidebook for the Las Vegas Area for 19 years! He is the creator of the 52 Peak Club.  Branch has led over 8,000 hikers to over 100 different peaks in the Southwest.


We have the most experienced leaders of any Meetup hiking group and schedule hikes no other hiking Meetup group offers.

Please upload a photo of yourself, so we know what you look like. You will feel more welcome and it's easier for us.

*We limit the number of hikers on all hikes. Safety is our number one priority. 

Join us today and you can be standing at a peak with us tomorrow.

Thanks,
Branch Whitney
