Welcome to the New York Backpackers!

We're a club of outdoor enthusiasts who come together for day hikes, weekend backpacking trips, and longer excursions. We love all outdoor sports such as rock climbing, ice climbing, kayaking, alpine, nordic, or telemark skiing, snowboarding and biking.

We love all seasons but we especially love the winter.

Our Club provides all kinds of adventures year round. Please check out our past events and sign up future events.

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.
