Founded in 1931, Allentown Hiking Club is founded for all people, of all backgrounds to, in the united in a shared purpose of our love of nature. We are sponsored by the Allentown Recreation Bureau and a member of the Keystone Trail Association and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.
We maintain 10.3 miles of the Appalachian Trail, including two backcountry shelters, Allentown (north of New Tripoli) and G.W. Outerbridge (west of the Lehigh Gap).
We offer hikes and other outdoor events, which are open to the general public and led by experienced club members and other local experts. We have a plethora of different events of all different skill levels. Along with our larger weekend hikes, we have midweek hikes that are both social strolls, and more adventurous workout hikes. We meet up to hike to local free concerts, have organized bike rides, water fun events, winter sports & more. Check out our calendar to see what we have coming up. We hope to see you at an upcoming event!
We are doing the semi annual maintenance on Lock#2. Please bring gloves, safety glasses (or your sunglasses), water, lunch and some hand tools like clippers, garden trowel or rake. Meet at the Nesquehoning trestle in Lehigh Gorge. For leader contact info for details, please visit the Allentown Hiking Club main website.
