We are the Elite Hiking Group in Las Vegas. Why?
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.
Note: You do not have to be part of the 52 Peak Club to go on the hikes.
Branch Whitney is the leader of this Meetup group.
He is the author of Hiking Las Vegas (plus four other hiking books), the number one hiking guidebook for the Las Vegas Area for the 17 years! He is the creator of the 52 Peak Club. Branch has led over 7,000 hikers to over 100 different peaks in the Southwest.
We Hike To Peaks other Meetup Groups Don't
We have done more hikes to more peaks than all the other hiking Meetup groups combined!!! We have the most experienced leaders of any Meetup hiking group and schedule hikes no other hiking Meetup group schedules.
We do easy (20%) moderate (35%) and advance (45%) hikes and scrambling routes around Las Vegas and the southwest. Many of the hikes are based on Branch Whitney's book and website: Hiking Las Vegas, which is the source for hiking information around Las Vegas.
We follow these rules to ensure we don't have problems:
* You MUST join with your first and last name. You will NOT be approved to join this group if you don't sign up with a first and last name.
*We limit the number of hikers on all hikes. Please do not confuse us with Meetup groups that sometimes have more than 50 hikers on their hikes. We respect nature and other hikers.
The Best Leaders
Our leaders know the hikes they are scheduling and Branch personally review each hike to make sure it can be done safely. Branch knows the hikes and routes and has done virtually every hike, many of them several times.
We hope you will join us and experience the incredible outdoors around southern Nevada and beyond.
