The Great Smoky Mountains 900 Miler Club
The 900 Miler Club is more than 600 hikers who have hiked EVERY trail in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and have applied for membership in the Club. The Club was founded in 1995 by "Louisiana" Lou Murray.
As of September 10, 2021, there are 706 members of the 900 Miler Club. Here is our current membership list.
To join the Club, hike every mile of every current official trail in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Then submit your application and supporting documentation to the Club, as described below in the Membership section. We created an Excel and a PDF file listing all the trails and their mileages; you can use this to track your progress and submit your documentation upon completion.
Additional 900 miler maps can be submitted. We will record them on the membership page. (2X, 3X, etc.) No additional fees are charged past your initial membership, just let us know and send us your records. Many of our members have done two or more maps. We have one member who's done twelve!
The initial fee is $15 with no membership dues thereafter. Print the 900 Miler Club application (DOCX) (PDF). Follow the instructions on the form and mail it to the address listed with your check for $15.
Congratulations! You're a 900 miler. To honor your achievement, you'll receive an official certificate of completion, a sew-on patch, a sticker and a magnet. Any 900 Miler can obtain extra patches ($5), stickers ($2) or magnets ($3) from Lori Garufi.
