To answer your question, I looked in the library catalog for periodicals with the subjects "leadership" and "hiking." I didn't find any periodicals for hiking specifically, but that led me to the broader term "outdoor recreation." I found one journal called Journal of Outdoor Receration, Education, and Leadership that seems like it may be what you're looking for--you'll have to take a closer look to make sure it's refereed, but at first glance, it certainly looks scholarly to me. To access it, go to our catalog, select "journal title" from the drop-down menu, and type in the title.
In addition to that journal, you may also want to search for articles about leadership in periodicals devoted to outdoor recreation, or articles about outdoor recreation/hiking in periodicals devoted to leadership. To get started, you can search the library catalog for the subject headings "Leaderhip--periodicals" and "Outdoor recreation--periodicals." Those searches will show you what titles we have and what databases they're in.
Good luck, Katie, and feel free to write back or stop by the research help desk if you get stuck!
