Join us for nights under the stars, treks in the woods and NYC events to talk about your favorite gear and the next adventure.

BLAZE>> is a group for gay men in NYC that crave being outdoors and are passionate about backpacking and backcountry camping. New to backpacking? No worries, our members range from beginner trekkers with lots of enthusiasm to seasoned adventurers with years of experience to share. We are committed to challenging ourselves by trekking to isolated places of remarkable beauty, but our trips are as much about the journey as they are about being an über athlete.

There are no fees to join BLAZE>>, but you can help cover MeetUp admin costs by shopping for BLAZE>> products at on-line stores Zazzle and CafePress.

We're friends with Blaze^Colorado.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
