If you want to start your own hiking group to complete the 52 Hike Challenge please review our policies and procedures (with example) for doing so. Be sure to add your group below so others can find you!  

OTHER WAYS TO FIND LOCAL HIKING GROUPS

First make sure to join your local Official 52 Hike Challenge Facebook Chapter. Don't see your state / city? Keep checking back as we open up new chapters.
 
If you want to find more about outings, be sure to check out the Sierra Club, they have groups for everyone. Be sure to check out the "I" and "O" rated trips, you don't have to be a Sierra Club member to join those trips. The Wilderness Travel Course (WTC) is also very good and will set you up for learning the basics of the outdoors.
