Mid-Appalachian Highlands Club
Hiking in Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia

Welcome to the Mid-Appalachian Highlands Club website

NOTE: Club activities have resumed under pandemic guidelines. See the current hike schedule.

The Mid-Appalachian Highlands Club (MAHC) is a hiking and outdoor activity club located in the Tri-Cities area of East Tennessee. Our members are primarily from the Johnson City, Bristol, Elizabethton and Kingsport areas. The club was founded in February, 1976, and is one of the oldest in the region.

We welcome guests and new hikers anytime.

The club has hikes on most every Saturday as well as Sunday. For details on hikes, our policies, meeting locations, and times, go to the Hike With Us page. If you feel like you need more information, go to our Contacts page to call or email us with your questions. If you just want our hiking schedule, click on the appropriate link in the navigation bar.

In addition to hiking, the club helps to maintain several hiking trails within the region, including the Appalachian Trail, the Lone Oak Trail, and the Iron Mountain Trail.


What's good about our club?

The Mid-Appalachian Highlands Club welcomes people of all ages, backgrounds, and hiking ability. We are not out solely for exercise, but also to socialize, have fun, and enjoy each other's company. So come join us for a great day on the trail!
