We're pretty much the most active backpacking specific group in the bay area.  From beginner to expert our people are the best.  We get outdoors a lot but also have non-backpacking social events.  In the summer it's all about the backpacking and in the winter we try to have a range of activities from snow camping to resort skiing days.  So if you want to meet other outdoors enthusiasts, whether you're a hardcore hiker or an aspiring novice, sign up.  

To connect with other members make sure to check out the Message Board up top under 'Discussions'...

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
