This group is founded on the belief that civilized people like to sleep in on weekends, and lead their active lives in the afternoon. Hiking is not only exercise, it's also a great chance to socialize in pleasant surroundings.

Suggestions for new routes are welcome, but will only be considered if the hike is at least 4 miles long and an appropriate restaurant at the end of the path is recommended.  Routes reachable by public transport with a lot of greenery along the way are preferred.

We don't announce the restaurants on the website because we don't want people skipping the hike and just showing up at the restaurant.  This is a hiking meetup, not a dining one.  If you are interested in a dinner / discussion meetup, see my other meetup at http://www.meetup.com/3topics -- but bear in mind there is assigned reading for that meetup, and it usually fills up at least 3 weeks in advance.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
