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.

Participants include adult men and women of all ages and physical condition.


How do I get a ride or offer rides?

Post on the comments section of the event that you are going to that you need or that you have space in your car. Please wait until at least two weeks before the event to ask for a ride. We try to carpool as much as we can because a lot of people don't have a car and it's more environmentally friendly.

We're 5,373 Backpackers

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
