What we're about
Are you interested in hiking and meeting other Hispanic hiking aficionados, then this is the group for you. This is a fun and energetic group that loves socializing through fitness and adventure. We will be exploring some of the most spectacular trails in the San Francisco Bay Area. Come and join other passionate and nature loving hikers.
The hikes will be approximately 5 to 12 miles with varying levels of skill and difficulty. Please review the hike’s description prior to joining. Don’t join a hike if you don’t meet the difficulty and skill levels. If you are not sure, don’t join. Wait for an easier hike. Please change your RSVP at least 4 days prior to the hike if you will not be able to attend. All hikes will have a limited number of hikers. Changing your RSVP as soon as possible or at least 4 days prior to the hike will allow people on the wait list to attend. Arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start time.
All hikes are free to all participants.
Hiking Essentials: water, snacks, lip balm, sunglasses, sunscreen, insect/tick repellent, layered clothing, hat, hiking shoes/boots, and map.
Stay on the trail. Do not cut switchbacks or take shortcuts.
Stay to the right on wider paths.
Pass on the left.
When overtaking someone, let them know you are approaching and will be passing on their left. You may hear a biker call out, "On your Left!" as he comes up from behind. That means you should stay to your right.
Whenever you stop for a view, a rest, or to yield, move off the trail
Hikers going uphill are working hard and should be given the right of way
Greet people you meet :)
