I've thru-hiked the John Muir Trail... twice. I create trails guides for Southern California at http://SoCalHiker...­ and I look forward to connecting with you!

Are you new to hiking or an experienced hiker?

I've been hiking and backpacking for over 30 years. Climbed Mt. Whitney, Banner Peak, San Gorgonio, San Jacinto and done numerous backpacking trips ranging from 3-29 days in length.

What Jeff Hester is saying about this Meetup Group

Terrific group of hikers and a great selection of hikes makes this group TOPS for hiking enthusiasts.

    Hey, I'm part of . Were a new website that helps you meet new people based off your interests, whether it be hiking or anything else. It's more of meeting people 1 on 1 instead of group settings like meetup. We are currently looking for some beta testers and would love to get your input on the product we have built so far...

    I can't wait to hear more about your trip, and especially the proposal. "She said yes" wasn't quite the level of detail I
