Wag n Trails Pages

This is a group for casual hikers, dogs and their friends who love to hit the trail for fun and exercise.

Based in the East Bay we'll explore dog friendly hikes in the bay area. Dogs and folks of all sizes and breeds that are (mostly) well behaved are welcome. We also encourage non dog owning folks to join us.

Generally speaking, the hikes are "lead" in a very casual manner, the group gathers at the beginning. Sometimes maps are provided. This allows the group to stretch out into smaller groups. The dogs tend to have a better time when not bunched up on top of each other.

Each individual is responsible for their own safety. Please let the group know if your doggie has special needs or if the group can assist you in any way.

Please let me know if you'd like to lead a hike; we are always happy to learn new trails.

Anyone wanting to bring muffins or any other treat item for the group is strongly encouraged to do so : )

Please note our liability disclaimer:

A RSVP yes means that you have read, understand and agree with the following:

1. ​I acknowledge that the group organizer and assistant organizers and event hosts for this group are NOT guides or trip leaders.  We have no training or qualifications as guides or trip leaders. Wag n Trails is a social group for organizing dog hikes.  Every hiker is responsible for themself, their dog(s), their guest(s) and any event that occurs to or because of them.
2. I agree to abide by the rules of the park where the hike is held.  (The rules of the East Bay Parks are listed on the meetup group pages. See below.)
3.​I acknowledge that I and other participants may be engaging in activities that involve risk of serious injury to me, my dog(s) and/or guests, or someone outside of the group or some other animal, including permanent disability and death.  I understand that these risks may be increased through my own actions, or through the negligent action or inaction of Wag N’ Trails participants, its members or other representatives. If I bring/invite a guest who has not released liability through the meetup group, I agree that I am solely responsible for their and or their dog(s) including their actions and safety. I will not bring a banned member as a guest. I understand that if I do bring a banned member as a guest, I may also be banned from Wag n Trails. It is highly recommended that each participant sign up for an event through the meetup site.
4.​I hereby RELEASE and DISCHARGE from liability Wag N’ Trails, the group organizer and hike organizers, their officers, members/other participants, sponsors, and employees; and owners and lessors of facilities used by Wag N’ Trails, from any and all liablility claims, demands or causes of action that you now have or may have in the future, for injuries, damages, death and/or economic loss of any kind or nature, arising in whole or part out of the activities advice or information contained herein, even if caused in whole or in part by their negligence.
5.​California Civil Code section 1542 states; “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”  I specifically waive the terms of that section, and agree to Release claims that I may not yet know of, or which may be based on events that have not yet occurred.
6.​If I am allowing children under the age of 18 or any guest, to participate in this hike, I agree on their behalf to the terms of this Release.  I agree that if, notwithstanding this Release, I, the minor, or anyone on the minor’s behalf, or my guest, makes a claim against any of the persons or entities Released, I will indemnify those persons and entities and hold them harmless against all expenses, damage or costs, including attorneys fees, arising out of that claim.
7.​You further agree that if you or someone under your supervision uses the information on this website you assume all risks of injury, damage, and economic loss, without limitation, and release providers from all liability therefore.
8.​Organizers choose locations and routes but it is up to you to decide whether the event is appropriate for you to attend.  Ultimately you are responsible for your own safety.
