Our group meets many times a month for leader-less, (non-guided, can't stress this enough!!!), hikes. We we pick a day, a time, a hike from a map, and we hike! Many times it's our first time on the trail too.

Occasionally we will join a guided hikes through other organizations but the description will indicate that it is led by that particular group.   Most of our hikes will be non-guided day hikes in nearby Regional, State and National Parks, and mapped trails in Wilderness. We will also have weekend camping/hiking meetups and multiday backpacking trips as many of us enjoy the combination of experience. We will be hiking in a CA State Park at least once a month, hopefully more, in support of keeping our Parks open! If you have a favorite hike in a State Park or any other park please post it in the "Discussions" section of this group so that we can check it out! Thank you for your support!

We are a group of friends and soon-to-be friends who carpool, hike, and backpack together. We are hikers who like to get on the trail for fitness, fun, and awareness. We practice "Leave no Trace" on all trails and share that with our new Meetup friends. This is a hiking group for all levels of hikers but you must read hike descriptions and know your own limits. If you do not understand anything in the description you are responsible to ask the Organizers before the day of the Meetup.

We are fellow hikers not professional trail guides or Park Rangers.  We pick a day, a time, a hike from the map, and we hike). If you arrive at a meetup location and our event organizer does not believe you are prepared or fit enough for that particular hike it would be recommened to take alternative route or another hike that might fit your needs for that days hike for safety (check out our suggested gear list in our discussion pages). Everyone wants to enjoy the hike and if is someone is unprepared it is not fair to the other hikers.


You can find Discussion Meetups so that we can form a group conscience on how we want to achieve our goal for fitness, fun, and awareness.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
