What we’re about

Twin Cities Hiking Meetup (TCHM) is for hiking and outdoor enthusiasts who want to join like-minded people to hike on the vast and varied trails in the Twin Cities. Our purpose is to provide a variety of hiking and outdoor opportunities in our area's beautiful natural settings that foster friendships and community.  Our members share a strong commitment to leaving our parks, lakes and rivers the way we found them; we embrace a leave-no-trace philosophy.

While TCHM focuses on hiking and hiking related activities, other outdoor activities, such as snowshoeing and kayaking, may be offered. Hikes and events are held year-round and many of them include a social gathering afterwards!  Most of our regularly scheduled hikes and events take place in Minneapolis, St. Paul and the suburbs, but don’t be surprised to see opportunities to hike in county and state parks outside the metro area.

When joining TCHM, please use your given name or nickname in your profile, along with a clear photo of yourself.  This will help us identify you when we see you on a hike or other activity.

There is no cost to join TCHM.  However, maintaining our Meetup account costs approximately $200 each year. Periodically we will initiate a fundraiser to help with these costs. Participation in fundraisers is welcomed and voluntary.

TCHM is a place for you to get some exercise, have fun and enjoy your favorite outdoor activity with people who share your interests.

We are dedicated to providing a safe, inclusive, welcoming and harassment-free experience for all TCHM members.
