We are the premier Baltimore Hiking group with over 6,000 members.
All are welcome to join us! Organizers will try to mention when 4 legged hikers are allowed, but if not please ask. Meet other local hiking enthusiasts. This group is for all those who are dedicated to hiking, biking, camping, and any other fun outdoor activity in and around Baltimore whether in the natural areas or urban streetscapes. I would like to encourage all the members to make suggestions or plan and lead events. With lots of members taking an active part we can meet the preferences and schedules of most of the membership, and provide a range of opportunities to get out and enjoy the outdoors! Please post a current picture of YOU in your profile and at least your first name. Dues for hikes are paid in cash at the hike. We do not use paypal.
Thank you for joining and see you on the trail!
