About Us

 

Welcome to the website for Albuquerque Senior Centers’ Hiking Groups (ASCHG). Albuquerque Senior Centers have offered organized hiking throughout the region for over 40 years. Albuquerque senior, multigenerational and 50+ Fitness Centers offer membership to seniors aged 50 or older, and many support hiking groups. Members are invited to contact any centers having hiking groups and sign up for a hike. We look forward to your participation! For the most part, group hikes are led by volunteers, groups are driven to trailheads by volunteer van drivers, and volunteers provide coordination, planning, and information through this website.Use this section of our website* to become familiar with senior hiking in the Albuquerque area, to view a beautiful gallery of images contributed by our members, and to learn more about the Albuquerque Senior Centers and Hiking Groups.

Hiking is a great way to get exercise and connect with others who enjoy the outdoors. Our organized hikes are on well-known and not-so-well-known trails through beautiful New Mexico terrain with expansive vistas. Hikes are rated (“A” through “E”) based on difficulty, distance, and total uphill/downhill. We recommend you start with “A” or “B”-rated hikes and then try out more difficult hikes later.

Because of the pandemic, we are not currently scheduling any hikes from the Senior Centers. Members will be informed as soon as we resume our regular activities.
