Welcome to Tirmanmak Hiking Club

Tirmanmak is a Turkish word which means “to walk in the mountains”

A few friends and acquaintances who regularly went on excursions decided in 1988 to start a more structured organization with a constitution. From the onset the club attracted hikers from different shores: German, Swiss, English, Canadian, Italian and Australian nationalities have been active members since our inception.

We have a hiking program consisting of half-day, week-end and much longer hikes. We alternate the day hikes between Saturdays and Sundays. We also include other outdoor activities like canoeing as well as social events such as a karaoke or dinner-quiz evening.

Anyone with a keen interest in the outdoors is welcome. In the past we have had hikers as young as six and as old as seventy straggling along with us. Our motto has always been to hike at the pace of the slowest member.

We have quarterly meetings in the Pinelands library complex. We look forward to meeting you soon.

Please contact the club secretary, Alison Feinhauer (H) 021 531 3930 (weekends) or Cell 083 396 5069
