From the Hike It Baby website – Hike it Baby started in July of 2013, when Founder Shanti Hodges invited a few other new families to join her for a hike. In the first few months these were casual hikes among friends. As the number of families participating grew, it became apparent that the desire to get outside was much more than Shanti expected. Through the help of an ever increasing group of hosts and volunteers, Hike it Baby grew from a small group of parents to a large community of families. In 2016 Hike it Baby filed for non-profit status.
We currently have over 300 Hike it Baby branches, and close to 160,000 families. We’ve seen the number of monthly hikes grow from a dozen, to a hundred, to now over 3,500 hikes across North America. This means most cities will have at least a few hikes per week. If you aren’t finding hikes in your city, you can help us get more going locally by hosting hikes or learning about becoming a Hike it Baby Ambassador.
Houston currently has several Hike It Baby groups that offers hikes on an almost daily basis. Register on their website and get outside with your baby. It offers an amazing way to get out of the house, get a little exercise, and meet new friends.
