Welcome to the Genesee Valley Hiking Club

We are a volunteer organization; leading hikes since 1928

hikers hiking

Hikes will resume in July and will be posted on the meetup.com (c) GVHC page as usual.
However hikes will be limited at least initially to 25.
Hike leaders have preparation requirements the day before the hike. Therefore sign-up in advance of the hike is required.

We will be following the recommendations of the CDC which include keeping a six foot distance between hikers and wearing a cloth face covering as feasible.
