About Our Hikes

Welcome to Hike it Baby! We can’t wait to get outside with you!

Hike it Baby offers a wide variety of events from trail hikes to urban strolls and toddler crawls to park and plays. To find a local adventure, visit your local community page. There, you can meet your local ambassadors and check out what hikes are available near you.

We welcome everyone from mom, dad, partner, grandparent, nanny, foster parent and friend to participate in all HiB adventures. To join in the fun, please join our community by signing up for a 90-day FREE membership. After that, we ask participants to contribute $10 annually to help support Hike it Baby’s operations and this amazing website that links us all together nationwide.

Interested in leading a HiB hike?

All of our hikes are community-led, and anyone can submit a hike into the calendar.

What are some of our guidelines?

LEAVE NO FAMILY BEHIND 
We understand bringing children on trail can bring unique challenges, so if you need to stop to change a diaper or take a break to feed, we take it together! Additionally, our goal is to provide opportunities for everyone to join us in enjoying the outdoors so we strive for most of our hikes to be fee free. We understand many state and national parks require entrance and/or parking fees so please offer carpooling and other cost-saving options when possible.

WELCOME CIRCLE INTRODUCTIONS
Our events begin with a Welcome Circle, where we introduce ourselves and our families and set the intention for our time together.

JUDGEMENT-FREE ZONE 
Hike it Baby is a friendly and all-inclusive community. We come together to enjoy each other’s company, be healthy and expose our children to the wonders of nature. Topics will naturally come up that are polarizing to your community; please be respectful of each other and your differing worldviews. Leave your judgment at home.

RESPECT NATURE 
Hike it Baby adheres to LEAVE NO TRACE ethics. This means if you hike it in, you hike it out. We act as stewards to protect our natural resources for our children and their future families.
