FAHC Profile

FAHC was started during the summer of 1999 by a small group of dedicated walkers who wanted to enjoy spending time together in the incredible wilderness of Alaska. It quickly grew into the premier trekking organization....

FAHC was created for a number of reasons:

find others to hike with
create forum for people in the area to meet others with similar interests
gain more information on accessible trails in the area
government agencies are not catering to all of hiker's needs
contribute to area trail maintenance
create new trails
share information through clinics
learn history of trails in the area
find descriptions of trails including level of difficulty
create resources that will help make the most of every opportunity to hike
use the group as a political force

So, FAHC brings together a group of people with common goals:

Communicate and share information though a newsletter distributed every other month
Make a comprehensive list of what each of us know regarding trail locations, descriptions, and conditions
Create a web page to share the FAHC's information with hikers internationally
Prioritize and follow through on trail maintenance activities
Plan day, overnight, and extended trips of various difficulty months in advance for members to work into personal schedules
Expand the membership's knowledge base though clinics and slide shows

Come join us! Join a hike (you'll find them on the calendar page).
