What is your experience level with hiking? With backpacking? Rock climbing?

Regular hiker, from childhood (on camping trips), and hike regularly all over the Bay Area, coast, north bay, etc., and backpack in the High Sierras as often as possible in spring-fall. Can comfortably hike 8–15 miles on moderate-strenuous trails.

Tell us a little about yourself and what you'd like to get out of this group.

I work as a book editor and spend many hours in front of a screen, so in my free time I try to hit the trails as often as possible. Also love to backpack, camp, and road-trip to beautiful locales for such activities.

Where do you live?

Benicia, North Bay. But I work in Berkeley so often visit many of the East Bay Regional Parks.

Do you agree that while we maintain strict safety protocols that injuries may occur and all members are personally responsible for their own safety?

Of course.

Are you interested in leading/helping out with hikes, camping/backpacking trips, or other events?



Longtime hiker of the East Bay hills and parks. I enjoy moderate-challenging­ hikes in all kinds of terrain. In the summer I try to get up into the Sierras as often as possible.

What Marianne is saying about this Meetup Group

Great group of friendly hikers.
