Hiking and Backpacking Clubs

A club is a great way to get introduced to hiking. As a club member, you will benefit from the experience of the group. The group will teach you the best local areas to go to and provide you with many tips. A club is also a terrific way to meet new hiking buddies (important when your significant other is more of a stay-at-home type or when you have just relocated).

Clubs can have distinct personalities — some are laid back, some are more aggressive, some are younger, some are older — so check around for one that seems right for you. Also, I have to say that Hiking and Backpacking.com does not recommend or endorse any particular club on this list, we are merely listing them here for your convenience. Be careful in all aspects of your hike.

Raise your hand if you would like to spend more time hiking. Okay, put your hand down. Unfortunately, almost all of us have to put in our time at work in order to afford to hike around a bit on the weekends. But if your job really blows, maybe you should do something about it. A website such as http://graphicartsschools.com can point out some graphic design education and career possibilities that may interest you.
