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'...

    "My intro to backpacking was a trip to Mt. Whitney with a few co-workers in 2003. Since then I've only been able to do 1 or 2 trips per summer. would like to go on more trips this year. Looking forward to meeting up with people from this group."

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
