Club hikes normally take place on a Sunday (every fortnight) from September to June, mainly in the Cooley, Mourne and Wicklow Mountains.

 

The club normally organises two grades of hike for each date, a moderate hike (C Grade) and a moderate/difficult hike (B Grade).

 

Information on the club’s next scheduled hikes is available on the Upcoming Hikes page, which is updated on a weekly basis.

 

Our friends in the Navan Trekkers club go hiking on alternate Sundays to us.
