I have been hiking and backpacking for a very long time! My two hiking buddies moved out of the area so I thought it would be a great idea to join a hiking group. Looking forward to meeting everyone!
We hike from a couple of miles to ten+ miles, mostly in Santa Cruz County. Sometimes we will carpool an hour or so from Santa Cruz.
Read the description carefully for each hike. Most hikes will have a steep and rugged part. Some hikes have shorter or flatter options. Children are welcome if they can keep up and sometimes dogs are welcome depending on local regulations. See the "Photos" section for pictures of past hikes.
We either bring a lunch and eat halfway through the hike or get together for beer/coffee/food after the hike, sometimes both.
