American Hiking Society has been preserving and protecting trails for 40 years. Help us by pledging to HIKE 40 in 2016. HIKE 40 can mean different thing to different people; 40 miles, 40 hikes, 40 trails, you decide! You can create your own fundraiser under Advocacy, Outreach, or Stewardship and track your miles, trails and hikes to reach 40 all while raising funds. The top fundraisers in each category win some sweet prizes.
Choose which fundraiser you would like to support and get out there and hike! Prove to your friends and family that you are a passionate about the outdoors and know that trails don't just happen. Your support ensures that all hikers have access to beatiful outdoor spaces. Enjoy!
Founded in 1976, American Hiking Society is the only national organization that promotes and protects foot trails, their surrounding natural areas, and the hiking experience. As the national voice for hikers, American Hiking Society recognizes that foot trails and hiking are essential to connect people with nature, conserve open space, provide biological corridors for diverse plants and wildlife, and for the health of Americans and our natural environment. We represent millions of hikers who are committed to beautiful places to hike and believe that the preservation of hiking trails and their environments is important and a worthwhile legacy to leave future generations.
