Welcome to the Hammock Backpacking Group, the largest hammocking community on Meetup.
We're a group of trail enthusiasts made up of car camping glampers to granite-thighed peak baggers, and we're big on outdoor enjoyment and group safety.
As you get a few trips under your belt with us, you'll likely lean towards a particular type of trip or group of members, so welcome to the easiest way to make new friends while taking in the trails in and around the North East.
If sleeping in a tent is your thing, don't brush us off - we love you just as much! HBG is a community for tenters and hammockers alike where we can spend some time on the trail together.
You might want to see what all the fuss is about with hammocks and wish to get a closer look at others' rigs, or you're a hanging veteran who wants to lose themselves (figuratively speaking) in the woods between the trees.
Never hiked before? Come and join us on one of our day hikes and get a feel for the trail with likeminded and safety conscious group organizers.
Are you a trail blazer with hundreds/thousands of miles under your feet? Join us as we thru-hike some of the longer trails we have around our local states such as the WRT, LHT, OLP, BFT, and more.
Follow us on Twitter @HammockBG and don't forget to use the hashtag #HammockBG on your Instagram photos of the trail!
All of our events have at least one Organizer onsite to answer any questions you may have. Feel free to send any one of us a private message through the Meetup page/mobile app and we'll be happy to assist you.
