Welcome!

We are the 99-year-old Cleveland Hiking Club, almost 1,300 members strong. We offer between 390-460 hikes in the North East Ohio region on a monthly basis for hikers of all fitness levels. Every day we offer hikes of different difficulties, at different times, and at various locations. You do not need to be a member of the club to join us on a hike, so spend some time on our website to learn more then come and take a hike with us! You’ll be glad you did; but be careful, hiking is addictive!

Club News and Info

Additional information is communicated to our members via our monthly newsletter and (as needed) e-mails. Really old news and info has been archived.

11/11/2018 from: Centennial Committee
We are looking for your stories to include in the Centennial Book. Reflections should be a paragraph or two or three in length, tell a compelling story, and reflect the nature of the Cleveland Hiking Club. Send your favorite club or hike memories to Mary Baldwin (refer to the November newsletter or member directory for her e-mailaddress) by December 20. Put “Reflections” in the subject line.

The Valley Connector Trail in Cleveland Metropark (CMP) opens 10/22/18. From CMP: "The Valley Parkway Connector Trail, a 6-mile paved multi-purpose, multi-use, ADA accessible trail, will allow users to travel safely off of the Valley Parkway roadway, creating a 32-mile continuous ATP trail starting from the northernmost tip in Rocky River to the Towpath Trail in Brecksville!" Hopefully, some hikes in Brecksville Reservation will take advantage of this new addition to the Cleveland Metroparks.

10/13/2018 from: From Matt Collings, Chief Pathfinder

08/16/2018 Please share this Tweet from the Cleveland Metroparks about our club's donation via your social media account


07/16/2018: The Centennial Legacy Trail fund collection has ended. Many thanks to all who donated. Future details will appear in Newsteps issue later this year.

05/26/2018 E-blast:
The Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail between Boston Store Visitor Center and Peninsula is now open. In December 2017, the trail section was closed for replacement of a pedestrian bridge. The park worked with contractors to successfully complete the bridge so visitors can enjoy the trail during the holiday weekend. The trail remains closed between Deep Lock Quarry and Hunt House. The park is working to complete the remaining three pedestrian bridges included in the same project. The temporary closure is necessary for public safety. There will be no detour available. Please respect the closures.

From the e-blast committee:
It has come to our attention that a number of our members are not receiving eblasts. This seems to be an AOL problem and is not a problem that is associated with CHC. Apparently AOL is having multiple problems with mail.

We need the help of all our members (especially hike leaders) to get the word out to AOL users. Please remind them to check their spam/junk folder to see if our eblasts are showing up there. If not, we are suggesting that they set up a new email account with a different provider. (gmail, Hotmail, etc.)

When they set up a new account they will need to let us know so that we can change their address in our database.. The easiest way is to contact the membership chair at chcmemberchair@gmail.com or to send a message to the club via the "Contact us" link on the website.
