We have only two requirements to join the Indianapolis Hiking Club; you must be 18 years old and have hiked with us on two occasions as a guest. That's it. You do not have to be invited by a member to join us on a hike. Simply show up at any scheduled hike. After you complete your second hike you are eligible to join.

Click the following link to view and print a copy of the application form or you may contact our Membership Officer who will send you one. Complete the form and mail to the address shown on the form along with a check for the annual dues. If one of our members influenced you to join the Club, we would appreciate you letting us know in the space provided on the application form.

There is no one time membership fee, just annual dues which are very modest (see application form for details) and are mainly used to cover the cost of printing and mailing the bi-monthly news letter and hike schedule. We offer individual and family (two or more adults at the same address) memberships.

You will officially become a member and your mileage will begin to accrue on the date of the next Board of Directors meeting, usually held on the third Thursday of each month. You will be notified when you become a member. Until then you are welcome to hike as a guest as often as you wish.

If you were previously a member of the Club, but have been inactive (i.e., non-dues paying for a year or more), you may be reinstated and your mileage will pick up again from where you left off. You will need to resubmit an application form and pay the current annual dues.
