What we're about

** Please note that all hikes are currently limited due to parking issues and the need to socially distance. In addition we're asking that everyone bring a mask to use when social distancing isn't possible. Please stay healthy, stay safe, and keep social distancing.

Especially now due to current limited hiking sizes we ask that members avoid no showing to hikes or canceling last minute. Please be considerate of others that may be on a waitlist and if you or your signed up guest are no longer able to attend update your RSVP accordingly. Members who have no showed to hikes may be asked to give up their spot in upcoming hikes for someone on the waitlist. **

Explore New Jersey, the Garden State, and get a fitness experience! We organize hikes for all skill levels.

Founded in 2015, the Mission of Hiking New Jersey for Young Professionals is to safely introduce members and guests to the beauty and fun of the hiking and outdoor fitness experience in New Jersey and the surrounding area. We have consistently offered hikes on a weekly basis for the past 3 years (rain, snow, humidity you name it we haven’t missed a weekend yet)!

If you’re a young professional in your 20s or 30s looking to meet new people, see great views, and/or challenge yourself, you’ll enjoy this group’s easy going dynamic and various events. We always welcome new hikers of various skills and encourage you to join.

For safety reasons, we require each member to use a recognizable portrait of themselves for their profile photo.

We all benefit through the wealth of open-access trails New Jersey has to offer. All our hikes are free, we do ask each member after their 60 day free trial to contribute $5 a year to help us have a group on Meetup.com which charges organizers $23.99 a month.

Look forward to seeing you on the trails.
