The goal of the Dayton Hikers is to bring together those people who enjoy hiking and backpacking hiking. The Dayton area has hundreds of miles of hiking trails. With our Five Rivers MetroPark system, State parks and community parks, there are many nearby opportunities for day hikes. A hiker can easily find an enjoyable hike whether it is a shorter, easy hike or a longer, more challenging hike.
Dayton Hikers welcomes newcomers to join whether you are a beginner or an experienced outdoors person. Their groups meets for both day hikes and overnight backpacking trips. Every Tuesday the Hikers Meetup Group, which has a membership of nearly 2000, has a hike scheduled and you can find out more by joining the group.
The day hikes are primarily in the Dayton area and their backpacking trips are to areas within a few hours drive. Most members are from the Dayton, Ohio area but anyone is welcome to join!
