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.

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.

Hikers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Hikers between the ages of 18 and 21 must have a waiver signed by a parent / guardian. Please no dogs, alcohol or firearms.

Weather Cancellations
