Albuquerque Senior Centers' Hiking Groups (ASCHG)

Rio Grande


We invite you to come out and hike with us. Enjoy the natural beauty of the mountains and deserts of New Mexico with our volunteer hike leaders and van drivers to show you the way.  We do day hikes four to six times a week, in the company of friendly fellow-hikers who are ready to share their enthusiasm and knowledge of the area.  Everyone is welcome to use this website as a resource to learn about hikes and our program.


We always need hike leaders and van drivers, both regulars and occasional substitutes.  There are many other ways for you to participate — publicity for our group, planning a picnic or event, computer and website assistance.  As you hike with us, please get to know your hike leaders, drivers, and other active members of our groups.  All these people will be happy to steer you in the right direction for volunteering, and will arrange to mentor you for leadership roles.

Please contact the administrator with your interests.
