****PLEASE READ BEFORE REQUESTING MEMBERSHIP****

You must be 18 years or older to be a member.

An identifiable photo of only yourself (no dual/group memberships) is now required for membership.  We no longer approve members without this photo.  Please do not submit professional photography.

Also, make sure you add your last  name, initial, or some other identification that makes you unique to your profile name!  This helps avoid confusion in the group and will speed up the approval process!

**Please note!  If you send the organizers a message and block your email address, there is no way for the organizers to respond to you!!!

In order to stay in the group, you must participate in at least one event per year and you must sign in to your Day Hikers meetup account at least once every 6 months.

There are hundreds of wonderful places to hike in the Central PA area that are perfect for day or half-day hikes. We are looking for people who enjoy heading out for the day and exploring those places and may not have time or the gear for overnight backpacking. We offer a variety of hikes from 4 miles up to 20+ and have also offered some night hiking!  I'm open to suggestions and look forward to hearing about the great places you've hiked and want to share with the group.

Not all meetups will be a hike. We offer kayaking, camping, movies, and just simple get togethers to enjoy one another's company.

We're 692 Day hikers
