Almaden Hiking Group is a hiking group organized by people who love and enjoy nature, making new friends, and getting some exercise. Our primary objective is to explore and enjoy nature. We will stop to see the wild flowers, waterfalls, towering redwood trees, take a picture, or have a small snack.
Our event organizers are volunteers. When you join this group you agree to the release of liability.
Almaden Hiking Group is the right match for you if you are in the age group of 50's and 60's. This group is ideal for couples, people who are in a relationship, or people whose partners or spouse doesn't like the outdoors, but we welcome everyone. Most of our hikes are in the range of 4 to 8 miles and moderate difficulty level. Occasionally we will do longer or strenuous hikes. We welcome new members, but since this is a small hiking group, we request you to answer a few questions for us to decide if your interest matches with the existing member’s interests.
