York Hiking Club

During the Great Depression in 1932, a group of enthusiastic folks formed an association to enjoy each others company while engaging in local, inexpensive outdoor recreational activities. Today, the Club is an incorporated, non-profit, all volunteer organization with one or two activities most weeks of the year. The Club has over 130 members and is very active in recreation and preservation.
