What we’re about

New to hiking?? Strap up your hiking shoes and get ready to hit the trails with City Hikers. Our goal is to encourage city residents to explore, the abundance of natural places New England has to offer.  Hiking is a great way to enjoy the process of staying fit, while enjoying the beauty of nature. City Hikers members will share hiking ideas, to explore some of the beautiful trails in New England. Our meetup organizers are all volunteers, who are still exploring and learning about hiking but are excited to share their outdoor experiences, gained from other hikes. The hikes will range from 3 miles – 5 miles. This is a great group for those new to hiking and not looking for speed. We will make sure that you never hike alone (unless you want to!) The pace will be that of the slowest hiker, no one will be left behind. We look forward to exploring the outdoors with you.

These are not guided trips - these are social events. Remember that you are responsible for your own safety. Stay within your skill, fitness, and experience level.
We expect our members to be mindful, of the hikes they join, and to be sure they have the appropriate level of knowledge, gear, equipment, and fitness to participate in the hike. The average person who walks regularly can reasonably complete our hikes.

All skill levels are welcome to join the group from beginners to advanced, city, and non-city residents. We welcome your participation, energy, and ideas. We require a few questions for new members, which help other members and organizers know more about you and help us keep out spammers.

No one will be denied membership, as long as they seem to be real people interested in hiking, meeting new people, and having fun.

Our goal is to hike all 4 seasons of the year, weather permitting, in the safety and camaraderie of the group.
