Western Mass Hilltown Hikers was created for people who love the outdoors to get out and discover new destinations for outdoor recreation. Our goal is to bring awareness of the landscape, history and wildlife the Hilltowns of Western Massachusetts have to offer and promote those natural assets to boost tourism and economic development to the area while still keeping our open spaces natural.
Western Mass Hilltown Hikers was created for those who love the outdoors as much as we do, to get together and get out there! We were once three friends who hiked every weekend to a different destination, each week more friends joined us, then friends of friends and so here we are today, a group of over 1,500 members, over 1,000 in the Facebook Group and 5,000 followers on our Social Media platforms. Yes! we Tweet the Hilltowns as well. Each month we lead a publicly advertised group hike, always free and no registration required (except during COVID), open to everyone including dogs.
