Castleton Mall Hikes will be Outside
Rick Kinnaman, co-leader of the Mon/Wed/Fri Castleton Mall hikes, wants hikers to know the mall does not open until 11:00 AM, thus until further notice all hikes will be outdoors. There are no restroom opportunities or access to a water fountain. He will be at the door near the food court to sign everyone in (please wear mask for sign-in). Rick will be walking around the outside of mall from 8:00 to 10:00 so you can meet up with him to tell him your mileage if you do not arrive at 8:00. Should you have questions, you can contact Rick at (317)407-9746.

Hiking Resumes on June 1. June and July 2020 Schedule Now Available
On May 21 the Board approved resuming hiking on June 1, with new polices to protect all our safety during the Covid-19 pandemic that are detailed in the President's Remarks on the first page of the new schedule. The new schedule is available on the Hike Schedule page. The calendar function for June and July is also available.

All IHC Hikes are Cancelled through Sunday May 31
The Board of the Indianapolis Hiking Club had a Zoom meeting on April 24 and decided to extend all hike cancellations through May 31. We did not make this decision lightly. We are all eager to get back to hiking and socializing with our hiking friends. However, the number of new cases of Covid 19 continue to increase daily. Many of our hikers are in an at-risk group of the population.

Stay safe and continue to hike on your own. We will get through this together!
