    We are the 100-year-old Cleveland Hiking Club over 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 and durations, at different times, and at various locations. You do not need to be a member of the club to join us on a hike; 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!
