WELCOME!
VegasHikers is the premier hiking group in the Desert Southwest! We take more hikes to more places and have the friendliest, most welcoming organizers of any group around. We feature hikes for all skill levels, road trips, camping, and social gatherings. We have events at a huge variety of times, places, and days. We even hike at night! With dozens of organizers and an average of more than an event a day, you're sure to find activities to suit your fancy.

KNOW YOUR LIMITS.
Our organizers are not tour guides, we're not rangers. Going out with us is the same as going out with a few friends. Expect the same risks, take the same precautions. As organizers, we will do our best to give accurate descriptions of the hikes we post. If you're a beginning hiker, a hike's elevation and distance may not mean much to you. Likewise, difficulty ratings are subjective, and a hike that is "easy" to one person may be "moderate" to another. Err on the side of caution. You're much better off going on a hike that's too easy for you than a hike that's too hard or too dangerous for you. As you go on more hikes with us, you'll become more familiar with our ratings and our descriptions, and you'll learn more about your own limits. Ultimately, it's up to you to keep yourself safe out there. You're an adult. Hike within your abilities.

DUES/FEES
There are no membership dues to be a part of this group. It does take money to pay for this site, fill up first aid kits, and keep organizers prepared, so we gladly take donations any time they're offered. Additionally, we have a partnership with Amazon.com. You'll find their link on the left side of every page. If you click that link before you buy from Amazon, you won't pay a penny extra and Amazon will make a contribution to VegasHikers.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES
Our group can be defined by five terms, which help guide every decision we make. They are as follows:
1) All are welcome
2) We hike together
3) We come prepared
4) We're all adults
5) We appreciate the outdoors

To learn more about the group, BE SURE TO CHECK OUT OUR "Pages" SECTION. That's also where you'll find our FAQ list.
