Dove Mountain Hikers was founded in 2004 and had its inaugural hike in November of that year. Beginning with 10 hike leaders and a membership of 45 hikers from communities on and around Dove Mountain, the club eventually grew to over 200 hikers.

In recent years, many of the original hikers and hike leaders left the area or retired from hiking. In order to continue providing monthly hikes, the Dove Mountain Hikers merged with The Highlands Hiking Club, also headquartered on Dove Mountain. The merger became effective on April 1, 2020.

The Highlands Hiking Club consists of a group of residents of the Highlands at Dove Mountain community and has been joined recently by the Dove Mountain Hiking Club representing hikers like you, those in the larger community surrounding The Highlands. The combined membership is now over 325 members. Our hikes are led by trained, experienced leaders and our club has a variety of social activities off the trails throughout the year as well.
