Philly/New Jersey area outdoor adventurers??

Hey all! I'm Lauren from southern New Jersey. Looking to get outside and meet some new folks from the area. Interested in hiking, climbing, biking, anything outdoors!

Hi @greenmonkey - Thanks for reaching out! We are going to tag some other New Jersey and Philadelphia area people to see if they are looking for partners for outdoor activities or have any suggestions for you!

@Sammy@kathyrb@njhiker@Blinky802@Caron@Surlyman@Imre - do you all know of any good groups for meeting new people to get outside with?

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

@greenmonkey, there are a number of hiking clubs that you could look at. AMC (Appalachian Mountain Club) has several different chapters in the area and they do a number of different activities. Also, try a search for hiking clubs. 

Hi @greenmonkey! Depending on what you're interested in, there are a number of good local groups to start with.  In South Jersey, we have the Outdoor Club of South Jersey ( and if you're on social media, there's a local Facebook group called South Jersey Trails which is pretty active. The Philadelphia Chapter of the American Alpine Club ( is also a good resource for climbers.  If you're near our Marlton, New Jersey store, check out the Friends of Black Run Preserve and Friends of Wissahickon.  There are a number of active cycling clubs close to our Marlton, NJ store, such as Team Evesham, Synergy Cycling Club, and Outdoor Club of South Jersey have weekly rides from Spring to Fall. I hope this helps!
