Hiking while travelling
With information about the Sierra Club

A group of friends hiking in the Drakensberg Mountains in South Africa.

When planning a trip, don't forget to include some hiking.

Even a short walk freshens the mind and aids your digestion after spending so much time sitting in cars, planes, or trains.

Dr. Voyageur strongly suggests joining organized groups for day or overnight hikes. These are great ways to meet Americans and Canadian and learn more about the places you visit.

One such group is the Sierra Club .

Local, provincial, and state chapters organize day hikes and other special events.

The Los Angeles Chapter has an amazing number of choices each month. For example,

Sierra Club Angeles Chapter activities (Los Angeles) (Slow to load, but it does.)

Be sure to choose your difficulty level carefully. With the possible exception of Dr. V Sierra Club members in general are a rather robust lot. If in doubt choose an "easy" hike.

The day hikes are free to non members. Donations are appreciated. Because chapter members organize "car pools" to trail heads, when public transportation is not available, you don't even have to have a car.

Local Sierra Club chapters include San Francisco, San Diego, Portland, Seattle, Victoria, Vancouver, BC, Toronto, Tucson, Denver, Los Angeles, Honolulu, New York City, Washington, DC, and MANY others.

The Sierra Club main site features multi-day hikes of national and international interest, which often must be booked weeks or months in advance.
