Hiking with Hike4Life
We're a group of urban outdoor enthusiasts that want to get you, “Out of the hoods and into the woods.” Hike4Life partners with local and national organizations, businesses and entrepreneurs, to promote healthy and active outdoor lifestyles, respect for nature, the protection of our environment and teaching the benefits and value of spending time outside.

We're excited about fun, fitness and outdoor education; learning how to safely hike trails, climb mountains, identify edible plants and experience wildlife, as well as enjoying the health benefits of a day hike through woods.

Join Hike4Life as we heal our relationship and connections with nature and with each other.

Get Up. Get Out. Go Hiking.
What is Hiking and Why is it Good 4 You?
Hiking outdoors has plenty of perks: nice views, fresh air, and the sounds and smells of nature. It's good for you, too.

Hiking is a powerful cardio workout that can:

  1. Lower your risk of heart disease
  2. Improve your blood pressure and blood sugar levels
  3. Boost bone density, since walking is a weight-bearing exercise
  4. Build strength in your glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, and the muscles in your hips and lower legs
  5. Strengthen your core
  6. Improve balance
  7. Help control your weight
  8. Boost your mood.

"Research shows that hiking has a positive impact on combating the symptoms of stress and anxiety," says Gregory A. Miller, PhD, president of the American Hiking Society. "Being in nature is ingrained in our DNA, and we sometimes forget that." - WebMD

If you are someone who has never gone hiking before, you'll be in great hands with the Hike4Life staff.
Hike4Life introduced me to the beauty of nature. I had no idea so much green was in my backyard. I knew nothing about hiking. Thank you Hike4Life - J. Alvarez
"Hike close to home. You don’t have to drive three hours to find nature. Explore your city and state parks. You’ll learn how near we are to the outdoors in our everyday lives." - Rue Mapp, Outdoor Afro
