Join the American Hiking Society

Have you taken up hiking as a new form of family recreation? Are you a serious hiker that spends hours on challenging trails? Do you want to find a way to become more involved in hiking across the nation? Hikers of any background will want to check out the "American Hiking Society". This society is an alliance of local hiking clubs and provides a wealth of resources and activities for hikers of any background.

They have a bounty of events to choose from including National Trails Day and Winter Trails Day. Thousands of trail events are held across the nation in June and January encouraging hikers to get involved in conservation and other hiking activities. For example, during the Winter Trails Day hikers can learn how to snowshoe, cross country ski, and many other winter activities along the hiking trails. It is a great way to meet up with fellow hikers and experience the richness and fun of hiking.

Hikers can also participate in volunteer vacations, jobs, and internships. During 2005 they planned 1-2 week volunteer trips where hikers can lend a hand in building footpaths, cabins, and shelters. Hikers will not only be able to bond with their fellow hikers, but add value to the beauty of the hiking experience for others. It is a learning experience that is priceless.

Do you hike because you are trying to increase your fitness? The American Hiking Association has found the hiking trails just for you. They have identified the top ten "fitness" trails all across the country. These trails are sure to give you a great workout. Plus, you can skip the confines and boredom of your regular gym workout. The majority of the trails are situated on the East and West coasts. A trail overview including length and terrain are provided. This will help you to get started on your fitness hike.

Want to find other hikers in your area? Looking for a local hiking club to join? Not sure where to look? You're in luck because the American Hiking Association offers a national trails directory from which you can find a hiking group near you. Contact information for local hiking clubs is available on their website.

Need new hiking gear for your next trip? Searching for a book on trail information? The American Hiking Association has a hiking store with gear, maps, guides, and trail tools. Best of all, if you become a member, you will receive a discount on your purchase. A portion of you purchase will be set aside for trail conservation. Skip searching around piece meal for hiking gear and head to their online hiking store that will have everything you need.

The American Hiking Association is a one stop shop for all your hiking needs. Become a member today and boost your hiking experience. Connect with local hikers, volunteer, and become involved in the hiking community. For more information and how to join, check out their website at http://www.americanhiking.org/
