If you like to hike, love nature, want to stay fit, want life long friendships, like to travel, love adventure, love history and want to be part of a club celebrating over 65 years of passion and the opportunity to hike more than 2,000 times a year with over 500 of your closest friends ....then the Indianapolis Hiking Club is for you!

Come take a closer look at what might be the best first day of the rest of your life. Learn more about us or check out our newly published 65th Anniversary Club History book. Better yet, review our hike schedule and join us on any hike as a guest. Everyone 18 years or older is welcome, no invitation is necessary and there is no fee, but please no pets unless the hike is a pet hike. We hope to see you soon!
