|Interstate Hiking Club||
Who we are?
The IHC is a
medium-sized hiking club, organized in 1931,
affiliated with the NY/NJ Trail Conference.
IHC members are of various ages and diverse backgrounds.
Where do we go?
Most of our activities
are centered in the NY/NJ area.
Some activities are further away. The club occasionally sponsors trips in the Catskills
and Pennsylvania. We have had campouts in the Adirondacks and Maine.
Our hikes are
usually not accessible by public transportation. For NYC residents
do not drive we recommend the ADK New York Chapter.
What do we do?
are scheduled for every Sunday and some Saturdays
as day-long outings. They are graded by difficulty of terrain, distance and pace.
|Strenuous||Some climbing, usually rugged, generally 9 miles or more.|
|Moderate||Some climbing and rugged walking, but less than 9 miles.|
|Easy||Generally easy, fairly level trails, slower pace, 6 to 8 miles.|
Is that all we do?
the club will host other outdoor activities.
In the past we have done trail clearing, orienteering, bushwhacking,
snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, camping, backpacking, swimming,
canoeing, and rafting.
