Today's fast-paced and technologically dominated society can degrade a person's psychological, physical, and emotional wellbeing. It traps people in an indoor and plugged-in lifestyle that is overwhelmingly stressful. Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group promotes getting outdoors and unplugging to decrease stress, get fitter and healthier, and get inspired! We have offered over 5000 free and/or nominal cost opportunities for people within our community to get out, get unplugged, and improve their all around health.
The Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group exists to promote physical, mental, social, spiritual, and emotional wellness through reconnecting people with nature.
In addition to outdoor recreation, Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group nurtures stewardship that protects trails for future generations and provides education, encouragement, and nature-empowerment for members of all ages, families, underserved youth, and veterans through mentorship and leadership development in the outdoors.
