What we're about

A hiking group for all outdoor adventurers.

This group is dedicated to building a community that supports getting people outdoors and into our natural environment.

The variety of activities that we host aim to make our wild more accessible and will showcase much of Western Australia and sometimes beyond. While a proportion of our events will cater to the moderate to experienced hiker, others will be slower paced on easier terrain and will include a handful of urban walks.

Everyone is welcome so please join us.

To help you get ready for hiking and broaden your knowledge of the outdoors we have prepared a heap of helpful articles and amazing trails (2500+) at www.trailhiking.com.au (https://www.trailhiking.com.au/)

While setting up your member profile, please ensure that your profile pic clearly shows your face as this is a membership requirement.

Please help share the love and join us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/trailhiking)

Hiking provides a range of benefits including; increasing general fitness, reducing stress, anxiety and depression, trauma rehabilitation, weight loss, heart disease prevention, decreasing cholesterol, lowering blood pressure, improving mental well-being, creating social connections, appreciation for the environment and a range of both tangible physical and mental benefits.

This group is proudly supported by Adventure Advocates Ltd (https://www.adventureadvocates.org.au/), a not-for-profit charity.

Cape to Cape

Location visible to members

Hi all, I wanted to organise a hike of the Cape to Cape track for September. If we can get a few people involved we can organise a car shuffle rather than having to rely on the transport there as it’s a little expensive. The plan is to start at cape Naturaliste lighthouse at approx 0900 on the 2nd of September and finish by 1500 on the 8th at the latest. This should be ample time including breaks and meals and stuff. If there are any questions please feel free to ask. I hope to see some interest so we can start doing a couple of longer hikes like this every now and then. Thanks. Sam.

HIKE FITNESS BEACH WALK and Yummy Curry-every Monday 5pm in winter. 4 meetups

Join 8-10 regulars, all ages. I set a fast pace on soft sand, all weathers. The group strings out walking at their own pace. We often do 6-8km in the hour. Some walk on the path, some walk on the beach, we walk with the sunset, then return for the yummy $15 Curry, at Mullaloo Tavern. We generally split to a fast fitness group and a slower strolling group. This is on every Monday. If you want to come, pm me on[masked] as that's what the regulars do. Bring a change of clothes if walking on the beach waterline, as you may get wet! Unless we choose to hang out we will be exercised, fed, and home by 7.30pm all ready for an evening of whatever delights us, or unavoidable admin ( in practice sometimes a few of us chat and laugh 'til the pub closes). Meet by Mullaloo Surf life saving club, carpark side to the right of club as look at the beach on the low wall by the hydrant. We will walk until you choose to turn around, then turn back. This walk gives the option of path, (can bring the pooch0, flat sand or beach sand walk. See you there!

Perth peeps, are you guys driving straight to Stirling range on the day? I was wondering it’s probably a good idea to get an accommodation and stay nearby the night before. Please comment if you have any suggestions. :) This is a grade 5 difficulty, please ensure you are aware of the the level of fitness and hiking experiences required on this hike. The event organiser has no responsibilities of whatsoever should anyone gets injured during the hike. *hike at your own risk and do take extra precautions**
