Welcome to the Wasatch Mountain Club Hiking page. Hiking is one of the WMC's most popular activities. Join us for fabulous hikes up to mountain tops, alpine lakes or forest loops. Or come with us on a backpack or car camping trip. Hikes are organized at different levels of difficulty and cover different distances so everyone can find the right level of enjoyment. Hike organizers are all WMC members and volunteers. Please give them your support and appreciation. Follow the links on this page to learn more about hiking with the WMC.

See you on the trail - Paula and Andy
