Miles of trail
years of service
Not just another hiking club.
Trail Work & Planning
Our members clear blowdowns, brush, re-blazing, and more so the public can safely use the trail. With new trails, we identify property owners, plan routes, and obtain required permissions.
Members throughout the state organize day hikes and backpacking trails throughout the year. There is always a hike in the works that will interest every hiker no matter what the age or hiking experience.
We're committed to educating the public of the benefits of hiking, health benefits, the beauty of Alabama and how to protect its fragile environment. AHTS can provide speakers for your club or civic organization on a variety of topics from hiking and backpacking gear and tips to destinations to Leave No Trace practices and more.
Each year, AHTS holds a three-day conference, the largest in the state, that brings together hikers, backpackers, and outdoor lovers to hear presentations on a variety of topics including hiking and backpacking, the environment, history, flora and fauna, and more.
Be a part of something bigger than yourself.
Being a part of AHTS means that we are working toward goals that others will enjoy long after we are gone.
AHTS provides me with an opportunity to introduce others to nature and show them how to enjoy our precious natural resources, in a responsible and safe manner.
