The Smoky Mountains Hiking Club was founded on October 27, 1924. All year long in 2014, we are celebrating the Club's 90th Anniversary.
The SMHC 90th anniversary patch is available to all club members for a fee of $10.00 including shipping.
The 90 Miles Hiked for SMHC 90th Year patch is available to all club members who complete the challenge of hiking 90 miles of the more than 800 miles of maintained trails in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park for a fee of $5.00 including shipping. These 90 miles must be unique trail miles – no out and back miles or repetition of trails, and all must be hiked in 2014.
The 50 Miles Hiked for Wilderness Act 50th Year patch is available to all club members who complete the challenge of hiking 50 miles of the more than 100 miles of the Appalachian Trail maintained by SMHC in the Nantahala National Forest and Great Smoky Mountains National Park for a fee of $5.00 including shipping.

However, qualifying miles hiked in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park for this challenge can also be used in the 90 Miles Hiked for SMHC 90th Year challenge.

Note: All merchandise orders will be fulfilled as soon as possible, but please be patient as it may take up to four weeks for your order to be processed. The SMHC is a volunteer organization, and we do not have a staffed office. All merchandise and membership transactions are handled by volunteers as they have time outside of work, vacation, family and other obligations..
