Wilbraham Hiking Club
Wilbraham Hiking Club
The Wilbraham Hiking Club was formed in 2012 with the idea of allowing recreational hikers of all abilities to join in and experience Wilbraham’s gold mine of exciting trail lore, wildlife, flora and fauna. As interest quickly increased, so did the number of hikes offered and the location of the hikes expanded well beyond Wilbraham's borders. The club is well-organized thanks to Jay Taylor and his volunteers.

Hikers must be 21 years old to sign the required waiver.  Hikers ages 18 -21 may participate without an adult, but must have the required waiver signed by a parent or guardian.  Hikers under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

For details on the hikes, please download the fact sheet and hiking guidelines. Weekly hikes are held year-round on Wilbraham's own trails as well as a range of trails within an hour's drive of town.

To be on the WHC email list for all club activities and notices, please email Jay Taylor or call him at (413) 596-9746 or (413) 726-4374, or you may email Gerri Morgan.

Monthly Meetings:
The Wilbraham Hiking Club holds monthly meetings where newcomers are always welcome.  There are no dues or fees, but members are encouraged to buy WHC t-shirts for $10.00 to support club activities and incidental expenses. 

As of January 2014, meetings will usually be held the 2nd Wednesday of the month, 7:00 pm at the Wilbraham Senior Center, 43B Post Office Park, Wilbraham. At the meetings, prior hikes are reviewed, upcoming hikes are planned and scheduled, and hiking matters are discussed. For information on upcoming dates and topics, please feel free to email Jay Taylor or call him at (413) 596-9746 or (413) 726-4374, or you may email Gerri Morgan.  Please also visit our Meetup page for a list of our upcoming hikes and additional information.
