This is a faster-paced walking/hiking for fitness group. The routes will often include stairs, hills and sights to take in. On occasion we might climb some boulders. Urban walks will be held in San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley and other nearby communities, while nature hikes will be centered in the East Bay Hills and Marin Headlands. The average distances will be 5-8 miles. Sometimes we'll take a cafe break depending on time and location. We will take public transportation when we do a one way walk. In general, they will be held on weekends and weekdays after work. Get your tennies ready!
Annual Membership Fee: 10.00 to cover Meetup dues and Organizer planning to be paid at your first event.
