The Monterey Bay Area Hiking Group is for people who enjoy hiking, being outdoors and socializing. We explore many areas throughout the Monterey Peninsula, BigSur/ Ventana Wilderness, and Santa Cruz Mountains. On occasion, we will offer events out of the area. Hikes are generally for most levels; from 4 mile hikes with minimal elevation gain to 20 mile expeditions with significant elevation gain.  Hikes may be scheduled on any day of the week and usually last between 3-5 hours.  For those interested in multi-day activities, there will be some car camping or backpacking trips.

Please be advised that we are not a walking group and therefore do not expect to see many short hikes (less than 3 miles) over level terrain .   Please match the hike to your skill level.

Please join us for our next hike!

Disclaimer: The Organizers are not  professional guides and do not have certified training nor insurance. As you are aware, inherent hazards and risks are associated with hiking and all other physical activity. You are responsible for your own safety and health. The individual hike Organizer is not in charge of this hike, but simply  going on a hike and inviting others to join.

As you join, please read the "About" information under the heading "Pages" on the menu at the top of the Home page.

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.
