Indy Backpacker's has some of the best guides and leaders in the Midwest and Near South.  Our club serves as  a forum for them to find some of the best backpacking adventures and for our members to attend.

Take a Hike!  We're about people  who like to throw on a pack, grab some friends, hit the trails and make some new memories. Whether your a pro or a rookie sign-up and get involved.

Indy Backpackers is free to join and stay as long as you like.  We do have annual dues of $6.  Any trip for which you RSVP during your 1st 30 days of membership is free.  After your 1st 30 days your annual dues are required for you to RSVP.

We love to have fun on our trips!  But..Indy Backpacker's trips and forums are moderated and not open to foolishness, stupidity or a lack of respect for others and their thoughts and opinions. Please be respectful of other members and the wilderness areas where we backpack.

Join our guides and leaders!  We are always looking for trip leaders to host trips.  Please let an organizer know that you are interested.

Have a question or comment about our group, gear or backpacking in general?  Post it in our discussion forum or on our Facebook page.

See you  on the trail!
John

    "Mark just sent me an email. He talked to the rangers there and they said to NOT drink the water even filtered. He's going to cache 4 gallons at the halfway point which is about 9 miles in. Make sure you bring enough water to make it there."

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
