Welcome to the SoCal Hike and Peakbag 4 Season Group.  This group is for those interested in trail hikes, off trail treks, peakbagging, snowshoeing, snow climbs, car camping and backpacking.

We hike, snowshoe, snow climb, backpack and camp in the Anza Borrego Desert, San Jacintos, San Gorgonio Wilderness, San Gabriels, and the Sierra.

You must be over 18 to join this group.

We keep our groups small in the interest of enjoyment and safety. Some events do require prior experience, specialized gear, and/or technical skills. These include winter hiking, backpacking, canyoneering, and advanced hikes. If you're new to a particular activity, make sure you contact the event organizer. It is often possible to accommodate less experienced members, but not always.

No one in the group is a guide or in any way responsible for your comfort or safety. Please be prepared with adequate gear and supplies for the trip. Going out into wilderness has inherent risks associated with it including but not limited to: falls, unstable footing, rocks, insects, snakes, heat, rain, snow, lightning, poisonous plants and you should be aware and prepared to address any changes in weather, trail conditions, road conditions and to look out for and avoid random acts of nature, including insects, wild animals and natural hazards.

It is your responsibility to evaluate the difficulty of any activity you participate in  and decide whether you are prepared by having the experience, skill, knowledge, equipment, and the physical and emotional stamina to safely participate.

Travel may be part of an activity. You assume all responsibility for any accident whether you are driving or carpooling with another member.

It is  MANDATORY that each member of this group maintain a current, recognizable face picture  as the MAIN profile picture for search and rescue purposes.  Deleting the photo once approved will be cause for removal from the group.

Our membership does consist of Married Couples, Committed Couples and Singles. Our group thrives on the diversity of its members. If you are looking for hiking friends, this is a good group for you. If you are looking for a singles club or group, please look elsewhere.

*WAIVER OF LIABILITY: This group, its organizer, assistant organizers, event organizers will not be held responsible for any injuries or accidents that may occur carpooling to and from hikes, or for any injuries or accidents before, during, and after group hikes. If you sign up and come on this hike outing you are acknowledging that you freely and voluntarily assume all risks of injuries and damages and agree to participate in the hike/outing. No +1s or guests allowed at SCH&P events. All attending must be group members.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
