What we're about
NEW APPLICATIONS - VERY IMPORTANT: Please read the buttom of the text about the need to have photo on your profile sheet or if you prefer Internet Privacy, email a facial photo of yourself to the Organzier. SAVE YOUR HEART - TAKE A HIKE! Hiking is the one of the most fun and exhilarating cardiovascular exercise in the world. You are enjoying nature, the uphill trails will challenge you, the views will inspire you and you could not find a friendlier, more helpful, exciting group of people on Earth. Interestingly, there are many great hiking trails near the Philadelphia Area. The Wissahickon Gorge in Philly and The Mount Misery (what an inspiring name) and Mt. Joy Trails are always a good back-up for both urbanites and suburbanites, but within one or two hour's drive from Philadelphia, there are dozens more. We'll explore them all sooner or later! Additionally we will go camping, climbing, skiing, backpacking close to Philadelphia, as well as take adventure trips within Pennsylvania, nearby States in the Catskills, New Hampshire and outside of the USA, like the Alps, South America and beyond. This year we are going on an expedition to hike the Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Whatever your level is, however far you want to reach, very close or very far, you will find your favorite place with us. We do many adventures, but it is not a stretch to say that we do more hiking than any other two groups combined. YOUR APPLICATION MUST INCLUDE A FACIAL PHOTO ON YOUR PROFILE SHEET. Should you have a privacy issue, you have the option to email the Organizer and send such photo to him to be held in private file and not be on the website. We go to the wilderness to which as a member you are welcome to sign up. For security reasons we want to know who you are. Faceless application will not be approved. Thank you for your understanding.
