Eastham Hiking Club

Eastham Hiking Club was founded in 1977 by John Sullivan and in 1983 was lead by Hortense Kelly.  During the ensuing years, Hortense developed and led many hikes on the Outer Cape.  In 2006 Hortense retired from active leadership and Don Heyer took over the reins of EHC.  Don enhanced the number of hikes and lead groups of 50 or more every Wednesday from 9 am to 11 am except in the summer months of June, July and August.  These months were skipped in part due to parking restrictions in many of the parking areas for the start of the hike.  The group is now led by co-leaders, Don Light, Bob Rabenold, Mark McGrath and Chuck Thompson.  Click here for photos of the EHC leaders and here for a 12-04-2015 article from the Cape Codder.
