The Wisconsin Go Hiking Club was organized in 1924. The purpose of the club is to "Promote health and good fellowship by hiking". As the name implies, the WGH club is primarily a hiking group, but camping and diversified entertainment events are also a part of our activities. Since all events are planned and run on a volunteer basis, the programs vary from year to year. Cost of events are shared equally by participants. The club currently has approximately 300 members, ranging in age from 25 to 80+.
The club usually has 5 hikes scheduled every week of the year in Milwaukee and the surrounding area. Hikes are a minimum of 4 miles, with many in the 5-8 mile range, and some longer treks of 10-22 miles.
