The SHMG is one of the oldest and most premier event-led meetup group. We've been around over 8 years and enjoy a membership of more than 3300 hiking enthusiasts. Each year, we as a group provide small financial support to local organizations who do wonderful works to our community and contribute to our shared commitment to make this world a better "outdoor" place. The SHMG is proud of it's many "foot adventures", our members, and particularly to our hard working and passionate hiking organizers. They are the ones who map, scout, plan and schedule hikes that hikers of all levels will enjoy.
Our group meets many times a month and ride-share to local areas in Auburn, the desolation wilderness in the Sierras, coastal, urban and midtown hikes. Whether we're on a scenic trail looking at abundant flowers; admiring the different species of trees or being on top of a mountain enjoying the scenic views and feeling the air in solitude, we are together in sharing the moment of just being there. Come and join us and yes, let's get outside!
