"Why do large numbers of hikers venture into the wet, wild woods with biting insects and stinging nettles, on trails lined with roots and studded with rocks? There is something different and deeply appealing about hiking in the out-of-doors. The wilder and more beautiful the land, the better the hiking. Clearly, these experiences are spiritual. It is the deep, but bright, secret of hiking. Spiritual experience is essential to our well-being, so hiking remains popular." Tom Thwaites

The Susquehanna Trailers Hiking Club was organized in 1932 by the Playground and Recreation Association of Wyoming Valley. In 2002 we celebrated our 70th Anniversary. We are based in Wilkes-Barre, PA. But our members come from as far away as Nicholson, Tunkhannock, and Bloomsburg.

Anyone is welcome to join us on our hikes. There is no charge and club membership is optional. Since we hike all year round please dress appropriately for the weather, wear proper foot gear and always carry water.

The group is varied - men, women, old, young, married, single and there are many vocations represented. But we all have one aim out on the hiking trail, to enjoy the outdoors
