Atlanta Single Hikers
Atlanta Single Hikers (ASH) is a group of individuals (18 years and
older) of various backgrounds who share a common interest - a love of
the outdoors in general and hiking in particular. ASH was started in
1995 and welcomes anyone 18 or older and unmarried who wants to enjoy
the thrill of the outdoors! Most of the people in the group range in
age from the 30's to 50's. We have lots of day hikes, socials,
backpacking and camping trips, dinners, canoeing, and other events. We
have at least one event every weekend and average two or three events
a week (mostly on the weekend). There is no membership fee; we just
pay for costs we incur, such as gas, parking fees, etc. Joining ASH is
simple - just show up! To go on an activity, just contact the event
leader listed in the weekly email or this site to RSVP, if requested.
Usually, you can just show up and go. To get on the ASH email list,
simply send a request to Pete Sadel at

Georgia Adventurers Group
Between sunsets and sunrises, Nature is a very beautiful place to
explore. Every creature has its habitat, every wind that blows through
the forest has its own path, and every stream delicately follows its
own stream bed. It’s all just like you and I, we all have to find our
own niche in the outdoors.
There are 100’s of trails within the vicinity of the state of Georgia.
And many years before Georgia had roads, it was laced with Indian
paths. There is so much heritage in everything you explore in Georgia,
the lakes, rivers, mountains, cliffs, all have a story to tell.
When the Georgia Adventurers Group take to the trails, we’re on a
mission to explore. We’re not just a club of “trail runners" or
“exercisers," we’re out there to learn too! Want to KNOW what that
flower is? that bug? that tree? that rock? that bird? Bring a Guide
Book and learn with us.
