Hiking with others is a great way to stay motivated, meet like-minded people, and is just plain fun. There are lots of ways to find others to hike with. Here are some of the ways that have worked for us.
- Talk to friends and family – You might be surprised to find you already know folks who love to hike (or would love to give it a try). Start with something well within everyone’s fitness level, and make it fun.
- Join a local hiking group – There are hiking group on Facebook, Meetup, and from local organizations that are a great way to meet other people that love to hike. We have put together a list of active hiking groups for every region of the Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge.
- Join a group event like the annual Climb for Heroes – Each year, The Heroes Project holds a fundraiser climb up Mount Baldy in Southern California. Events like this are a great way to hike with others, and meet other hikers who share your passion for the trail.
