Our Mission

HIKE for Mental Health is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to alleviating the suffering of mental illness.

We organize hikes to promote the benefits of hiking while funding mental health research and trail conservation.

As an all-volunteer group, we direct 100% of the funds raised from our hikes to our mission.
