Help support your MeetupChip in
- We all share a common passion and that is hiking -
If you love hiking locally and afar with a great group of people this is an awesome group for you. We are a very active group and have regularly weekly scheduled hikes and weekend hikes.
We explore all the surrounding local and greater bay area trails and also journey out to Pinnacles, Mt. Tam, Santa Cruz, Sonoma, Napa, the Marin coastline etc. We also plan social activities such as heading out to hear live music, dinners, spins around the lower Lafayette Reservoir trail followed by a potluck brunch, optional wine tasting or group meals after hikes, apres hike tail gate parties, etc.
Take a look at our past hikes, photos and you will find that we are a fun group. You should have some hiking experience and be in physical shape to hike hills at a brisk pace.
I know that once you have come out on one of our hikes you will be welcomed by our amazingly friendly group of fellow hikers and am sure you will be signing up for more.
First a few things you need to know....
1. We require a clear recognizable/identifiable photo of yourself when joining. This means a photo of YOU - not a cartoon, landscape, flower, ghost, etc. We must be able to recognize and identify you on our hikes. This is for safety reasons. It is mandatory. I will not approve your membership if you do not have the appropriate photo. This requirement is a very important safety precaution in case you are ever separated from the group, injured or lost. Only our members will be able to see your photo.
2. When you sign up, you will have 30 days to try us out before you must pay a one time member fee of $10 (per person if you are a couple). After the grace period of 30 days, if you have not paid the $10 fee, you will be dropped from the group. The one-time membership fee is NON-REFUNDABLE. This fee is used to offset the cost to me for running the meetup. Meetup charges me a registration fee quarterly for the right to run a meetup. I need your help in off setting this fee.
3. ALSO BEFORE signing up, you must read the following disclaimer. When you sign up you are affirmatively agreeing to the terms set out in the disclaimer below:
