We are a non-profit volunteer-run group who welcomes newcomers to join us on all hikes. Our aim is “to promote the enjoyment of the outdoors, teach outdoor ethics, and encourage the conservation of air, woods, waters and wildlife in general.”

We specialize in hikes that challenge all skill levels and fulfill the varied interests of our hikers. Hiking options include wildflower and photography hikes and backpacking trips. We also participate in trail maintenance in local state parks and have a variety of social gatherings throughout the year.

Come hike with the Greenville Natural History Association to meet interesting people and enjoy the outdoors.
