The Nashville Hiking Meetup Group has experienced a lot of growth in the last few months; if you are a Nashville hiker in the Nashville area and would like to get in on some group hikes and meet other hikers, do yourself a favor and check them out.

According to Kelly Stewart of the Nashville Hiking Meetup Group,

This group is all about hiking together and enjoying the great outdoors in middle Tennessee and beyond. Hiking is awesome because you get the chance to wander around in some phenomenally beautiful areas, meet fascinating people, and have a really, really fun time.

The Nashville Hiking Meetup Group plans hikes throughout the year ranging from easy to strenuous, local to regional. The aim of the group is to explore the natural beauty of Tennessee and beyond and to develop a social network for people with like interests.

I’m frequently reminded to visit the Nashville Hiking Meetup Group‘s online home to see what’s new, so I obeyed a fresh hint and checked out the website today. I was truly gladdened to see that my good friend and fellow Nashville hiking addict, Kelly Stewart, is now listed as the group’s organizer.

Pleased I was, but not surprised, for Kelly Stewart is a natural leader; when he joins an organization, he gets his hands dirty and climbs like English ivy. I learned this about Kelly before his Nashville Hiking Meetup Group pilotage, back when the planning for BarCamp Nashville was still underway. He and others are now finalizing details for PodCamp Nashville, which happens Saturday, February 9, less than three short weeks away.

Kelly serves as the Nashville hiking group’s spokesman, writer, web developer, organizer, photographer, and disciplinarian. Yes, most of us wear multiple hats, but Kelly wears them out.

Enough about him.

I’ll see you on the trails at Radnor Lake.
