The Glendale Hiking Club was founded in 1982 with a core group of members from the City of Glendale.  The club currently has members throughout North Phoenix and surrounding communities.

The Club offers organized hikes and an opportunity to socialize with others who enjoy the great outdoors.

On club outings, reasonable consideration is given to accommodate participation according to skill level from the new to the experienced hiker.  We rely on Club members to lead our activities.

The Club has hikes on most Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.   Hikes start in the early morning, and end with a social gathering for coffee and snack, or for lunch, when appropriate. 

We take two to three major trips each year to distant parks in Arizona and the nearby states. These trips are typically for 3 to 4 days.

Our current membership is about fifty members of mostly retired people, but includes some members who arrange hiking around their work schedule.

Though we don’t have regular meetings, we do gather for a picnic twice a year and for a December holiday party and a fun gift exchange.
