Exploring the Mountains, Canyons & Trails of Southern Arizona for Over 60 Years


Membership in Southern Arizona Hiking Club (SAHC) is open to anyone interested in hiking, and willing to abide by the Code of Conduct below.

The Bulletin is a monthly publication containing information about the club, and lists all activities and hikes that are scheduled at the time of publication. It is available online in PDF format in the members area of the club website. The members area also include additional hikes added after The Bulletin's publication.

The membership year runs from October 1 through September 30 for all club members. Those who join prior to July 1 will have their membership expire on September 30 of the current year. For those who join on or after July 1, the membership will expire September 30 of the following year instead. So if you join today for 1 year, then your membership will expire on September 30, 2021.

A one-month Temporary Membership is also available through the online application. The Temporary Member will be issued member number, and will be emailed one PDF copy of The Bulletin. One additional family member can also be included.

If you are a prospective member and would like to review a PDF copy of the The Bulletin before joining, you can request a complimentary copy to see what SAHC has to offer.

  • Preserve wildlife and not contaminate any water supply.
  • On a trail hike, stay on trail and not cut switchbacks.
I will conduct myself in such a manner as not to impair the safety, health, or enjoyment of others and myself, and I will:

  • Bring no pets or firearms.
  • Not participate in any outing which is beyond my physical capability.
