medals designed by hikers for hikers

At Hiker Medals we design medals with you, the hiker, in mind. Our high quality medals are a worthy way to commemorate these beautiful trails or mountains and make great gifts for the passionate hiker in your life.

Our story

our story

Hiker Medals started in 2016 after its founder, Wim, hiked the John Muir Trail and realized there were no quality souvenirs available to commemorate this amazing feat. He designed the John Muir Trail medal and took it with him on the trail. Soon after that he started  receiving requests for designs for other medals and as a result there are 52 designs representing trails and mountains from all over the world.

Our Medals

Our medals are designed with the hikers in mind, making sure they do justice to the trail they represent. Many details about the trail are reflected in each medal, knowing they will become a lifelong representation of in many cases a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Engraving & Gift Bags

Make your purchase extra-special by personalizing the medal by including an engraved message on the back or by including a gift bag in your shopping cart. This burlap drawstring pouch adds a perfect touch when the medal is a gift for a hiker.
