See legal disclaimer at bottom of text. EVERYONE MAY NOW JOIN THE GROUP EXCEPT THOSE FEW WHO WERE BANNED. Walking or hiking. Meet other local people who are interested in walking or hiking for fitness and learning about San Francisco's history, including its movie history. This walking group is unique. It is primarily a health group with a dash of history talk for flavor. It is for people in average physical shape who need restroom stops and not for athletes or people with serious medical conditions.

We keep our group together. We go on many different urban walks, in the best areas, that vary greatly in amounts of climbing and history facts. We walk at a leisurely pace and enjoy the scenery. Sometimes at a walk's end we have an optional dinner together at a fine restaurant, usually Indian, reasonably priced.

Our walks are usually 5 to 6 miles and might be called urban hiking. Our routes are well planned with good restroom stops properly spaced. We avoid stinky porta-potties. Though we mainly walk in SF we also walk in Oakland, Piedmont, Sausalito, Berkeley & Alameda.

We always take roll and if more than 20 attendees we give all a name tag. Attendance is usually unlimited and has ranged from 1 to 100. Kids and cameras very welcome. Dogs and other pets are not welcome. Also, smoking is not allowed on the walks as this is a health group. Occasionally we visit science and nature places. 99 out of every 100 doctors say "JOIN THIS GROUP!"

NEWS, September 29th: We now have 4 SF Saturday walks scheduled and the first 3 are open for RSVPs. Only cost is $3 cash per adult. Kids free.

Our "group photo" at the top left was taken at a walk this year, March 22nd, called "The 2 Mosaic Stairways Walk (North of West Portal.)"
