  • San Francisco Bay Area Outings

     I have been on three of these outings so far and found them wonderful. I hope to be able to continue in spite of advancing years, but as Julio said, age is a matter of what you are able to do.

    Louise on May 3, 2014.

  • San Francisco Bay Area Outings

     Very nice group of people. Julio's hikes are well-organized and his attitude and presence seem to strike the perfect note of organizing the hike and being there to facilitate, but not to "run" it. Groups v. diverse in terms of age, nationality, sex -- and they're large -- ones I've been on tend to be 80 people. Sounds awful, but seemed to work well enough -- just mentioning it because some people do not like to be in groups that large. (Obviously a compliment to Julio, though!) 

    Sue on Apr 8, 2014.

     First time with this group, I loved our experience with SF Bay Area Outings. My girlfriend had a problem with her breathing toward the end of the hike and everyone rushed to her aid.

     the best curated hike routes - the quality of routes is better than other groups that visit the same places 

    Shiri on Sep 23, 2012.

  • San Francisco Bay Area Outings

     What a great leader! One volunteer was on the back to keep the line, I felt so comfortable and secure. It was so fun and pretty! Carpool was a pleasure! I will go back to hike with Julio and recommend it! 

    Lorena on Sep 23, 2012.

  • San Francisco Bay Area Outings

     Julio is a good leader, who made sure that no one was left behind. Parts of the hike were challenging but manageable and worth it for the beautiful view. The hikers were nice, cordial, and intelligent. I loved the stimulating conversations, especially with my carpool buddies. Thanks to all the photographers for sharing the photos. 

    jo on Aug 27, 2012.

  • San Francisco Bay Area Outings

     Great Outing! Julio did a great job leading 84 of us to do this whole day hike. The river crossing was fun. Would like to do it again. 

    Jane P. on Aug 26, 2012.

  • San Francisco Bay Area Outings

     Excellent group and leader. First outing but event was well planned and executed. Several of the more experienced hikers gave tips to those of us who were less experience along the way. One member stayed back to warn other members of a rattle snake in the area. Hoping to do an upcoming hike with dinner to get to know some of the rest of the group better. This is just an awesome group! 

    Denise on Aug 25, 2012.

  • San Francisco Bay Area Outings

     Awesome, Interesting folks. Julio is an outstanding leader. Thank you for giving us these wonderful hikes!

  • San Francisco Bay Area Outings

     Julio is the perfect leader: calm, collected, organized. 

    Susanna on Aug 12, 2012.

  • San Francisco Bay Area Outings

     It is a wonderful group. If you are thinking to join a group to explore the nature beauty of the bay area. I would highly recommend this group to you. 

    Jessica on Jul 15, 2012.

  • San Francisco Bay Area Outings

     Julio did a wonderful job organizing and greeting this group. The pre-arranged car-pool locations were a big help and parking was not an issue as most of us arrived very early. The hike was also well organized and set at a good pace for all. The only change I would make is to have a sign put up where we are seated for people who are running late. It seems that another Meet-up group had signage so they were easy to find. A few members noted that they couldn't find us so they sat elsewhere. I will definitely join this group again for another outing and will recommend it to others. Great job, Julio! 

    Joy R. on Jul 9, 2012.

  • San Francisco Bay Area Outings

     Very well done. 

    Cheryl on Jul 1, 2012.

  • San Francisco Bay Area Outings

     Group is very friendly and fit in every sense of the word. I was surprised at how well the "no hiker left behind" principle works to make things relaxed and stressless. I too would prefer an earlier start. And I too would be happy if more people realized they can usually organize carpool details without posting to the entire group! Thanks, Julio and all for a great first time! 

    Felix K. on Jun 18, 2012.

  • San Francisco Bay Area Outings

     Julio is an excelling organizer!!!!! This is by far the best hiking meetup!!

     A++. Well organised, clear information presented. Scheduled and route followed. More and more folks joining the group. Large number of folks sign up and good number shows up, that says it all. A lot goes into choosing the hike, publishing the information, leading the group and doing it all over again, ever two weeks. THANK YOU !
