Welcome to the Gay and Lesbian Sierrans (GLS) section of the Mother Lode Chapter of the Sierra Club. GLS is a friendly, relaxed group of lesbians and gay men who enjoy outdoor adventures and camaraderie. Our local group, since 1996, has offered a variety of outdoor activities such as day hikes of varying intensity, bike rides, camp trips and other social activities… something practically every weekend! We hope to encourage your participation in, and appreciation of, the outdoors and help you make new friends in a comfortable atmosphere. GLS is an official activity section of the Sierra Club and outings are led by club trained leaders. There are generally no costs for outings, besides sharing expenses such as entrance or camping fees. All adults are welcome on our outings, whether or not you are a member of the Sierra Club.
