The Louisiana Hiking Club is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization designed to
meet the needs of Louisiana backpackers and hikers. Its goals are:
• to advance the knowledge of hikers and backpackers in Louisiana by
offering classes, seminars and other educational resources
• to foster communication between hikers
• to maintain existing trails and establish new ones
• to plan trips
• to compile accurate cartographic and naturalist guides for Louisiana trails
The Louisiana Hiking Club is an affiliate of the American Hiking Society. Annual dues are $10 per
family.  Meetings are normally held the first Thursday of each month (except no December
meeting) from 7-9 pm at the Bluebonnet Library, 9200 Bluebonnet Blvd., Baton Rouge. However,
from time to time there may be a schedule conflict that changes the date or location. Check the
Event Calendar to see if there has been a change, or send a message to one of the officials found
