What we're about

All ages are welcome but this group's focus will be on ages 45 and up. The purpose of this group is to enjoy the great outdoors amongst our peers. Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties will be the location of many of our activities. There is no fee to join. Consider this group as a meeting of like-minded individuals who love the outdoors. Our walks will be easy, up to 4 miles. Our hikes will be more challenging moderate to advanced, between 4 and 15 miles. If you are a skilled walker, try a hike.

Transportation Note: Each participant is expected to drive to the hike location. Car pools are encouraged but my function will be arranging and leading the activity. I leave it to our members to work out any transportation issues.

This Meetup group is not affiliated with any organization. We are an independent group of friends and would-be friends who enjoy walking and hiking together.


I understand that I MUST change my RSVP when I can no longer attend an event that I signed up for in the time frame required by the event host and if I accumulate up to 2 NO SHOWS (depending on situation) I will be removed and banned from 45+. I also understand that if I am a NO SHOW for a hike that is limited and has a waiting list I will be permanently removed from 45+. After 1 month of being banned or if there is a circumstance you think your organizers need to know, you may contact them and we may lift the ban with a promise that you will follow the above rules. Consideration for fellow members and event leaders is a requirement to belong to 45+.

All members must post an UP TO DATE PICTURE of themselves.

Your participation in any of our activities is your acknowledgment that you are solely responsible for your own assessment of your abilities and your physical fitness to participate in that activity. Walkers and hikers must be physically fit and by joining any event you agree to waive all rights and claims for damages against 45 Plus- Walks and Hikes in South Florida, it's Organizers and Assistant Organizers.

Online event

Thought it would be fun and useful to share what we are doing to keep busy and sane during this crazy COVID 19 time. For those of you who are working in all the important essential jobs I want to say "THANK YOU". If any of you are fighting this crazy virus, post to let us know so we can send prayers and healing. For those in the 45+ community who would like to participate just post a brief summary of what you are doing in comments on this page while being mostly housebound. This may give members new ideas on how to stay busy and perhaps try something new. Since we can't pursue adventures while hiking we can pursue new hobbies and indoor adventures! Ignore the May 31 date---had to put something. I am spending time finding new routes to walk within my home area. It is amazing what you can find when you really try! Indoors I am trying new recipes (cooking adventure),working on photo albums of previous trips(reliving those adventures)spring cleaning(getting rid of lots of junk),catching up with friends and family,reading,and watching lots of TV. Looking forward to your posts and some new ideas!
