You've only been joining events so far? Why don't you try to organise your own hike? Have a look on those tips! Organising an event is truely fulfilling, and you make a whole group happy!
There are several routes whose start point is not accessible by reasonable public transport (e.g., Geierköpfe).

Therefore, we have added a new functionality in the website, which allows organizers to associate a carpool with their events.
