What we're about
A social club with a hiking problem...
We are a group of hikers with a passion for the outdoors, hiking and socialising. Hiking is best in a group for safety and as a beginner, having someone who knows the trail.
Our hikers range in age and experience from 20's to 55's, beginners to experts who know the mountain like the back of their hand; some who stroll and some who sprint!
We have hikes on every weekend, and often in summer mid-weekdays too, of varying grades.
This meet-up is to introduce you to the hiking world at the beginner level, and slowly advance to more challenging hikes as your fitness & hiking skill/knowledge increases.
A young-at-heart and social group, we hike, we meet for supper clubs, go away hiking or just chilling for a weekend; always plenty of laughter and people with good, fun attitudes.
All leaders are volunteers. The Club has been around for quite a few years, since 1989 and there's usually around 500 members.
As a visitor/meet up person to an event, we do ask R20 cash per person per hike/day.
And now... http://www.meetup.com/Meridian-Hiking-Club !!
Please note: You are NOT a member of the Meridian Hiking Club if joining on Meetup alone. The Club has an annual membership fee (R200 per year, pro-rata) and Club members receive benefits (discounted weekends, events, no payment for day hikes), while Meetup members pay R20 per hike (and any other non-members joining an event) which is paid to the Club by the hike leader.
See those tiny white lines against the green veld....and dream of hiking that trail one day!
