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.

We're 4,154 Backpackers
