What we’re about
The Boston Hiking Group is here to help hikers share hiking ideas, get together on all manner of hikes and walks , and get to know some of the mountains of New England. The vast majority of events are hikes, but we may share other outdoor activities and activities related to the outdoors (such as the Banff Film Festival or AMC educational events).
Our meetup organizers are all volunteers who are willing to take time to share outdoor experiences. Often we may want to try out something new and put out a call to see who is willing to join us. Our trips may range from a 1 mile walk in the park, to a 35 mile day trek in the mountains, or a backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail.
We expect our members to be thoughtful about which hikes they join, and to be sure they have the appropriate level of knowledge, gear and fitness to undertake the hikes they attempt.
All are welcome to join the group from beginners to experts; locals to new transplants. We welcome your participation, your energy and your ideas. We do have a few questions for new members, which help other members and organizer to know more about you, and help us keep out spammers.
We don't decline new members as long as they seem to be real people interested in hiking. If there are no coherent or relevant answers, we will assume you are a spammer and decline your membership without further explanation.
