What we're about
Hi, we are a social hiking group with an emphasis on meeting people and talking as well as walking, exploring, appreciating scenic nature, and adventure.
The majority of our meetups are day hikes in forests, parks, streams, and along coastlines in the Auckland region. We also venture further afield on weekend camping trips, especially in summer, and sometimes we have multi-day hikes. We also have city walks.
Our hikes vary in difficulty. Some don't require any previous hiking experience, some are more challenging. We usually walk at a moderate pace that is comfortable for average hikers and we stop at places of interest along the way.
We carpool to most hike locations from Victoria Park New World (http://www.meetup.com/auckland-hiking/pages/Meeting_at_Victoria_Park_New_World).
We began in 2003 as a group of friends who like to hike and meet people from near and far, and we have been on Meetup since 2006. Membership is free and our meetups are free to attend.
If you have any questions, you can contact us (http://www.meetup.com/auckland-hiking/suggestion/) :-)
