The Wild Life Hiking Club

Who We Are

Meet your Hiking Club Leader. Chelsea is a high school English teacher, avid hiker, mother, and all around nature lover.

We are a community of hikers. It's as simple as that! It doesn't matter if you are just starting out or if you've been trail trekking since you were a toddler, the TWL Hiking Club is a place for hikers of all skill levels and backgrounds. When you become a member, you gain access to a community of encouragement and information. The TWL Hiking Club is a place to talk, share pictures, stories, location reviews, video, trail tips and tricks, and hiking hacks.

How it Works

Becoming a member is easy (and free). Use the official hashtag, #TWLHikingClub on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook and we will share your pictures and stories! You can also join our Facebook group to swap stories or share tips and pictures. Want to share an experience with the entire TWL Community? You can submit your stories using the form below for a chance to be a featured guest contributor. That's it! As time goes on, we will begin hosting hikes and selecting hike leaders around the country.

Support the TWL Hiking Club (and get cool merch!)
