From the President—Winter 2017

 

Welcome to Hountain High Hikers

The Mountain High Hikers is a hiking club that has been around since 1993 in the North Georgia Mountains that promotes hiking, Trail Maintenance and conservation issues in the Southern Appalachians

Most members live in Towns, Union, and Fannin counties in Georgia, and Clay and Cherokee counties in North Carolina. Most are full time residents, but some only come up for a few weeks a year to hike with us. Mountain High Hikers sponsors several hikes every week to accommodate a variance in hiking skills. Prospective members and guests are invited and encouraged to hike with us before deciding to join. If you are unsure of your hiking ability, I would suggest you  first try out a Thursday "Leisure" hike, these are shorter and at a slower pace than our Tuesday Hikes.  You can see our hike schedule on this web site under Hike Calendar tab.  You will find most of our members very friendly and outgoing and love the outdoors and a healthy lifestyle.

The club has quarterly combined business meetings and potluck dinners. Special trips are also periodically planned. We are one of the largest hiking clubs attending Wilderness Wildlife Week in the Great Smoky Mountains each year, usually with over 40 members in attendance. The club has also organized hiking trips to Virginia, Mt. Mitchell, Yosemite, and the Swiss Alps.

If you have any questions about the club or the hikes, please contact me!!  We are looking forward to meeting you and hiking with you.
