Minnesota Hiking Clubs

Minnesota Hiking ClubsMany Minnesota hiking clubs are composed of people concerned with specific trails. Other hiking clubs consist of a loosely organized group who enjoy planned hikes in locations around the state or in neighboring states. Some groups are for adults only and others allow family memberships. Planned hiking excursions range from beginner to advanced levels of fitness.

Minnesota Rovers Outdoors Club

The Rovers Club was founded in 1954. Their planned outings encompass hiking, biking, snowshoeing, canoeing and other outdoor activities. Individual members plan and lead outdoor activities like urban and wilderness hikes both in Minnesota and around the world.

Kekekabic Trail Chapter

The Kekekabic Trail Chapter maintains trails in the Superior National Forest and Boundary Waters Canoe Area. The Club organizes trail-clearing trips as well as recreational and backpacking excursions.

North Country Trail Association

The North Country Trail will extend across seven states from New York to North Dakota. The Minnesota chapters are the Itasca Moraine, Star of the North, Laurentian Lakes and Arrowhead Chapters. Individual local chapters set up trail clearing days and recreational hikes on their portions of the North Country Trail as well as work together and plan joint events.

Twin Cities Hiking Meetup

The group has a weekly hike scheduled as well as many other excursions to pick and choose. Picking up litter along the way is passion for this group. With over 12,800 members, many of the events have 10 or more people participating.
