1. Tomorrow, we're going to go to hike.

2. Tomorrow, we're going to go hiking.
===================
Which one is grammatical? Are both grammatical? Then, what is the differencein meaning?•English - Reed, Tuesday, October 27, 2015 at 10:23am
Both are grammatically correct. When we say we are going to "go to" it usually means a destination, to a park, to the store, to a restaurant, whatever. It's not usual to consider a hike a destination. We would say #2. It means or implies that the hiking is the "going", as in movement, not the destination.

Agreed, "go to" is not associated with a verb but usually a noun. Try reading the sentence out loud if it sounds weird it usually is.

  1. Neither makes good sense, and it's very hard to explain. Both are grammatically correct, but very awkward. "Go" has at least two connotations. We usually mean "go to" a destination. The act of hiking is often referred to as "going hiking" or "going on a hike," meaning that the movement of hiking is "going." We might say we are going ON a hike. We would not say we are going to hike without saying where we will hike. We might say we are going to hike to the store, implying that we will walk fast or with some difficulty. In this case, though, a destination is specified.
