Outings for all levels of those adventurous at heart from beginning to experienced hikers throughout the Southern California area as well as Northern California, the rest of the U.S. and even International trips.  Hiking, backpacking, off-trail, on-trail, snow travel, all throughout the year with many Sierra Club sections. . Meet other like-minded folks who love the outdoors. Enjoy shared "happy hours" camping beside alpine lakes; celebrate with others as they achieve their goals of climbing local, Sierra, and desert peaks; or go on regularly scheduled conditioning hikes and walks; make lifelong friends with whom you can explore the outdoors in every season.  We are eager to share our love for the outdoors with old friends and new.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
