SD Desert and Mountain Adventures Pages

Membership is for people I have hiked with friends of said people or by invitation only You can try to join but if I do not know you, know of you or have not had a member refer you, your request will likely be declined.

This group does local and other hikes in the Southern California region. In the winter. Many hikes are in the Anza-Borrego desert area. The rest of the year the hikes range from local to Sierra trips.

Although we do some challenging hikes the focus is on exploration not endurance. Desert and wilderness attire and equipment is required. Do not come dressed for a trail run.

If long hikes are your preference,or you are ultra marathoner/trail runner type I recommend checking out these meetups
