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'...
