The Johannesburg Hiking Club caters for people from all walks of life who have a love of the outdoors.

Hiking is a sport that requires a reasonable level of physical fitness which should be attained beforehand.

Our programme is structured in order for everyone, from the fittest to the slowest, to enjoy a day out in our lovely countryside. The regular Sunday hikes incorporate a slow, medium minus, medium plus and a brisk hike so that all levels of fitness can cope. Newcomers are required to join the slow group on their first adventure with the club.

For the more adventurous there is an Adventure group, but this requires fitness and experience.

For those fortunate enough to have Wednesdays free, there is a more relaxed midweek hike which takes place every Wednesday.

Due to our varied and diverse programme, one need not concentrate only on the hikes as our social side of the club is full of activities to suit almost everyone. The slide show/club evening on the second Tuesday of every month, is a social function where one can relax and enjoy other people's interests and hobbies and then chat over tea or coffee with plenty of scrumptious cake.

Membership Requirements

What is required?

Aspirant members are required to hike with the club on one occasion before applying for membership.

You simply go to the meeting place designated in the programme, (you do not need to book or telephone) ask the leader of the day for an application form, or download the application form to the right.

When the hike is completed, ask the hike leader to sign the form, and then have the form signed by a member of the executive committee. (Ask for help if you have not met one.)

You then sign the indemnity, and submit the form to the club administrator, with the required fees.

The reason behind the one hike before membership, is for you to ascertain whether you really enjoy hiking, and for both parties to be certain of compatibility, and where you will fit in with the club, be it on the slow, medium or faster hikes.

Hiking is for all age groups, from the moment you're able to take your first steps as a child, to the elderly...
