I started this group as a way for other trail junkies and backpackers from around the North East and beyond to get together and enjoy the outdoors. For the entire ~500 miles of my 2013 Appalachian Trail section hike I chose to hammock camp. Being a hammock fan for a couple of years prior, it was during those miles that I really became passionate about hammocks. During that same year I bought a sewing machine, took several classes, and started making my own hammocks for fun.

If you're a hammocker or a ground dweller, come and join us on day hike or a multiple-day backpacking trip where you will meet new outdoor buddies and make some new trail friends.
