Welcome to the Johannesburg Hiking Club

Hiking is a sport that requires a reasonable level of physical fitness, a level which should preferably be attained beforehand. Our programme is structured so that anyone with the required level of fitness can enjoy a day out in our lovely countryside. To this end, the regular Sunday hikes incorporate a slow (level 1), medium minus (level 2), medium plus (level 3) and a brisk (level 4) hike. Newcomers are required to join the slow group on their first outing with the club. Click here for more information on our Sunday Hikes

Sunday hikes are typically 7 hours or longer, often in tough terrain without paths.  Three hours of hiking up sometimes steep mountainsides and down valleys, over rough ground and scrub are usually covered before stopping for an hour lunch break, after which a further 3 hours of hiking back to the start point covers a typical day.

NOTE: Sunday Hikes & Leisure hikes are completely two different types of hikes, and the meeting places and venue may offen differ. Looking forward to seeing you out there. For more information on our Leisure hikes click here.
