                               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.
