What we're about

Hiking with Geeks is a local & online community of geeks, tech workers & entrepreneurs who enjoy being outdoors and hiking. All skill levels are welcome.

Next step: Set up your adventure profile (https://geekadventures.org/join/) (coordinate rides, real-time chat with local hikers, gear exchange group, group trip updates, etc) (https://geekadventures.org/join-hwg/)

We are an inclusive hiking group - All events are for all self-identified geeks regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, etc. Members must be 18+, but minors are allowed when accompanied by an adult.

We are a supportive hiking group - Hikers encourage themselves and others. Not every trail is simple, and we all need an emotional, physical, or psychological ‘hand’. We’re there for our fellow geeks.
