Welcome to The Wanderers!  You have just discovered Sonoma County's most active hiking group!  We love to hike...during the week, the afternoon, the weekend and even by the light of the full moon!  If you love to hike, you have just found your new home!  Please note that there is a $10 annual dues fee if you decide to join the group.  This is simply an administrative fee.  The hikes are and always will be...FREE!

We are about the journey as well as the destination.  We are striving to meet the hikers that fall into the middle zone...people that.enjoy moderate mileage with moderate altitude gain with a challenge thrown in occasionally at a moderate pace!  A group that wants to explore and constantly include new hikes while doing our favorites on a regular basis.    A group that is out there during the week as well as the weekend.

Our outings will normally be in the 5-12 mile range.  We are looking for people that are looking to improve their fitness level or are maintaining their current level.  If you are a moderate hiker that is hiking frequently you will find our hikes quite enjoyable.  If you are a new hiker or have recently just got back to hiking then our pace might be challenging for you at first until you fully get back into wandering on the trails.  We do average a speed of 2.5-3.0 mph and we keep going.  We wait at trail junctions and those of you in the front will have to wait and those of you in the rear will find that the group starts off when you catch up.  Oh and YES, there will be altitude gain included in almost every hike.  You will need to be comfortable and happy with walking uphill.  You also will need to be steady on your feet for the down hills.  Once again, we stop briefly to keep the group together from time to time but we do keep going with the exception of our lunch/snack break.   A word of caution-if you haven't been hiking regularly you will need to give yourself some time and consistent participation to be comfortable with the group's pace.

I'm not a professional hiker or guide and I don't have specialized training in first aid so I need to hold everyone completely responsible for their own safety and well-being. But, what I do have is a love of the outdoors and a desire to be there..whenever possible. I also have knowledge of many local hikes and am ALWAYS exploring new ones!  Come join me and we will simply enjoy this gorgeous area that we live in, find new adventures, laugh, talk and probably learn something new every hike while making new friends.

Happy Trails!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
