Founded in 2007, Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group is a very active non-profit organization dedicated to enjoying and promoting the health benefits of hiking and connecting people with nature. We are full of diverse people who enjoy a wide variety of activities including but not limited to: hiking, educational opportunities, outdoor stewardship, and environmental awareness activities with others while exploring a variety of locations throughout Maryland, DC, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and West Virginia. Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group (MAHG) enjoys Mother Nature’s diversity as well as each other's and ALL are welcome to join. Whether you are a newbie or a very seasoned hiker, we are sure to have a hike for you on our very active and varied calendar. Our focus is on safety and camaraderie while having a ton of fun while out on the trails -- so a sense of humor is a must with us!

***WARNING! — Our Calendar is VERY Active ALL Four Seasons and Can be Beneficial to Your Health***

Today’s fast paced and technologically dominated society can take a toll on a person’s psychological, physical, and emotional wellbeing. Many people are trapped within an indoor and plugged-in lifestyle that is overwhelmingly stressful. Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group promotes reconnecting people with nature by getting them outdoors and “unplugged” to decrease stress, get fitter and healthier, and get inspired!

Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group’s hikes and other outdoor activities are a great way to relieve stress and “unplug” while enjoying the variety of what Mother Nature has to offer throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group also offers several opportunities to give back by helping with maintaining trails throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and hosting and/or participating in other environmental stewardship and community building events and workshops. Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group offers classes and certifications in Leave No Trace outdoor ethics, and our own highly regarded Outdoor Leadership Certification program. Additionally, MAHG has an active outreach program to help with educating others regarding the many health benefits of hiking and the importance of taking care of our trails and our overall environment.

Why Hike with Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group? — We bring people together to have good times and make friends while enjoying the many health benefits of the great outdoors in a safe and welcoming environment. Hiking not only connects people with nature, but it also fosters an appreciation and respect for the environment and overall sense of community. As long as you are interested in hiking and/or stewardship, then Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group is a group for you. Whether you are looking to hike to lose weight, have never hiked a mile in your life, or are looking to rise up to the challenge of a 50+ mile ultra hike, we have a hike for you, all seasons. Remember, we were all newbies once and we enjoy introducing others to hiking.

Who Can Hike with Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group? — Simply put, you! Whether you are young, old, working, single, in a committed relationship, retired, laid off, shy, talkative, energetic, geeky, lazy (but hopefully you don't want to be or we just might have a problem with this one), recovering from an injury, social, or a competitive hiker, this is a group for you. We do more than embrace our diversity — we thrive on it!

When We Hike? — We do it the morning, afternoon, after work, evening, darkest of night, every weekend day, and all year ‘round and average 20 times a week. Get your mind out of the gutter ‘cause we are talking about hiking, stewardship, and outdoor education here. Seasonally, we offer weekday day hikes in addition to our variety of after work hikes.

Where We Hike? — We hike throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. We visit Shenandoah National Park, George Washington National Forest, and the Appalachian Trail almost every weekend. We strive to offer at least one easy, moderate, and strenuous hike within 60 miles of Baltimore, DC, and Northern Virginia each weekend day. MAHG hosts cookouts, white water floats, hike out/paddle backs, cave trips, natural water slides hikes, Appalachian Trail section hikes, camping trips, volunteer offerings, and last but certainly not least, our very popular Monuments in the Moonlight hikes.

How We Hike — Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group is mission driven. Click Here to learn about our mission and our accomplishments! We are committed to connecting people with nature, community building, giving back/stewardship, educational opportunities. MAHG is a well established group and respected for its excellent camaraderie — all with safety in mind while emphasizing having fun out on the trails! We limit our hikes to small groups for the comfort and consideration of others and to better enjoy and respect the environment. Hiking in large groups is not fun for you or anyone else on the trail or our volunteer leadership team.

As a partner with Leave No Trace (LNT) we practice, encouragne, and educaate others about the important of goot outdoor ethics. Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group is proud to be a Gold level Alliance Member of the American Hiking Society. MAHG participates in the "Adopt and Acre" program by adopting land in the Appalachian Mountains to suport The Nature Conservancy. Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group provides volunteer and trail maintenance opportunities and other community building events throughought the Mid-Atlantic Region.

Our leadership team consists of qualified, dedicated, and very appreciated volunteers who are some of the best in the region!

We hope to see you on the trail soon and let’s have good times while enjoying the many health benefits of hiking together.…
