One of the best digital tools for connecting with fellow hikers, Meetup.com provides a treasure trove of organized groups for you to join and get out on a hike. It’s easier than ever to find out what guided activities are going on in your area so you can participate, especially now that most Florida Trail Association chapters have their own Meetup groups.
Here’s who I’ve found so far. If you discover others, please leave an update on the page. Thanks!
