What we're about

This is a group for young people who are up for a bit of hiking and beer(s) afterwards. You don't have to be super fit or have all of the shiny gear. You just need a sense of adventure and a love of the outdoors. Hikes will vary from short beginner hikes to overnight hikes for the more experienced. Ideal for those who have recently moved to Perth or looking forward to meeting people with similar interests.

We're also on Facebook, where we have a page for discussion and if you're looking for people to join you on the trails outside of the "official" hike you can try your luck there - https://www.facebook.com/groups/youngperthhikers/
