    "During our weekend hiking trip"; "On our weekend hiking trip" are better.

    But over the weekend hiking trip is not wrong and ungrammatical?

    A caption for a photo doesn't have to be grammatical. You can use 'over the weekend' if you want to.

    As a caption for a picture, "weekend hiking trip" would also work.
